PRLog - Jan. 22, 2014 - PHILADELPHIA -- Anthony "Animal" Terrell, a professional MMA athlete fighting out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, recently signed a four-fight deal with Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC), one of the largest independent fight promotions in the Northeast.
Terrell's first match will culminate on February 8th as he takes on Donnie Ooton, or as I would like to call him, "ooooo snap".
Terrell, brandishing a perfect record inside the cage, is one of the most promising prospects on the East coast, and was awarded fighter of year in 2013.
Terrell has developed a nasty habit of dispatching his opponents rather quickly, with his last match ending just 23 seconds into the first round after he demonlished Pedro Velasco with a brutal head kick.
"Anthony is one of the hardest working guys I know. His focus is indicative of his results in and out of the cage," said Jason Sargus, Terrell's coach and co-owner of Brazen Boxing and MMA, The Animal's home gym.
Sargus added, "Anthony, along with our other fighters work as a team, and egos are left at the door, where they belong. We win or lose as a team and we continue to build, together. That's what makes this dynamic so special."
With this new deal, Terrell continues to knock on the door of a championship.
The double-edged sword of being a caramel version of Jean-Claude Van Damme is that it becomes a bit more difficult to find decent people that want to fight.
Unfortunatley, a good amount of the fighters in the local MMA circuits are more concerned with being paper champions rather than fighting the best prospects.
As Terrell continues his quest to rumble with formidale opponents, his management team is excited for the future.
"We're confident that Anthony will continue to grow in the sport and reach the top level of competition,"
That's the nice thing about real talent, you can't ignore it forever.
CFFC 31 will take place on February 8th at the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
