"Our expansion to the Memphis area has given us some incredibly memorable moments, created by the absolute best athletes in the region, and we're excited to showcase the next stars in MMA once again," CFFC CEO Rob Haydak said. "The Horseshoe Tunica Hotel & Casino was completely sold-out and absolutely electric the last time we were in town, and we're expecting another amazing night of action again on July 29."
The 24-year-old Lee fought most recently in December, extending his perfect pro record with a decision win over Earl Small at CFFC 104. All three of Lee's professional fights thus far have taken place under the CFFC banner, following a run of three straight wins in the amateur ranks with CFFC's NextGen division. He'll now take on Beard, who last saw action in May, scoring a first-round stoppage win on the Arkansas regional scene. Beard's last three victories have all come by way of stoppage.
Also confirmed for the card are several other stellar matchups, as well, including DeAndre "The Protege" Anderson (5-2) vs. Beau Samaniego (3-1), Reggie "Spider Monkey" Adams (6-3) vs. Justice "The Gavel" Lamperez (6-5), and Jonathan "War Hawk" Piersma (3-1) vs. "Terrible" TJ Welch (2-2).
