Carolinas Fight Scene Update: CFP Brings MMA To Myrtle Beach On Saturday

Carolina Fight Promotions brings professional and amateur MMA back to the Myrtle Beach Convention Center next Saturday, July 24th in Myrtle Beach, SC. CFP matchmaker Jeremy Owens had this to say about CFP's recent ventures into Myrtle Beach: "It's a great market and fanbase down there. The sport's popularity has grown tremendously in that area. The local population really supports MMA and, during the summer months, the tourists do as well." CFP always puts on an exciting event with entertaining fights and good production quality that makes for an enjoyable experience for all the fans in attendance. The headliner for this card will feature South Carolina pro fighter and WEC/UFC veteran Nissen Osterneck (7-3 and MMA For Real's # 1 ranked pro middleweight) taking on North Carolina pro fighter Roger "The Leprechaun" Carroll (8-4 and MMA For Real's # 2 ranked pro middleweight) for the CFP middleweight championship. "We've got two of the region's top ranked middleweights headlining this event so it should be a really good show for the fans," stated Owens. Also, Derrick Kennington (5-1 and MMA For Real's # 3 ranked pro welterweight) challenges undefeated prospect Will Estes (2-0). Other fights on the card will feature Jon Owens (7-2 and MMA For Real's # 2 ranked pro featherweight) stepping up to the lightweight division to take on Brandon Brown (2-4) and the pro debuts of amateur standouts Chris Cain and Rusty Haun. This is a good opportunity to watch some of the top pro and amateur talent in the Carolinas and to see a great night of fights.
