ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC) is proud to announce the promotion's return to Parx Casino in Bensalem, Penn. Featuring a bantamweight title fight between reigning champion Da'Mon "The Diamond" Blackshear (11-4) and veteran contender Josh "That Guy" Smith (11-7), CFFC 108 takes place Saturday, May 14, at Parx Casino's Xcite Center.

Additional featured matchups include a pair of international affairs with Canada's James "The Suplex Kid" Clarke (6-3) vs. Brazil's Luiz Paulo Barbosa (6-2) as well as undefeated NextGen light heavyweight champion Luke Fernandez (4-0) putting his title on the line against two-time CFFC veteran Dymere Rappa (2-1).

Tickets are on sale now at CFFC.tv. The event streams live on UFC FIGHT PASS.

"Parx Casino remains an incredible partner to us at CFFC, and after a sold-out event this past October, we couldn't wait to get back," CFFFC President Rob Haydak said. "Da'Mon Blackshear has been on an absolute tear and is considered one of the top bantamweight prospects in the country right now, while Josh Smith is an American Top Team fighter who has shown the ability to finish fights. This should be another incredible event."

Blackshear claimed the title in November, scoring an impressive first-round submission over a previously undefeated DeAndre Anderson to claim the belt that was vacated by Jared Scoggins when he signed with Bellator MMA. Blackshear now seeks the first defense of his belt when he takes on Smith, who returns to the CFFC cage after previously scoring a decision win over the talented Charalampos Grigoriou in 2020.

Additional bouts will be added shortly.

Current AEW wrestling superstar and two-time UFC veteran CM Punk calls the action at CFFC 108 alongside The Underground editor-in-chief John Morgan on UFC FIGHT PASS.
