Johnathan Ivey’s Cage Fighting Championships 3 is scheduled to go down in Murfreesboro, TN Saturday night at the Mid TN Expo. CFC middleweight champ Kyle Lee will defend his title against Caleb Ragsdale in the main event. Ragsdale earned the title shot by defeating Chaz Jourdan last August.
In addition to the fight for the middleweight belt the Johnathan Ivey’s Cage Fighting Championships 3 will feature three other title bouts to crown new champions in the their heavyweight, welterweight and featherweight divisions.

Any fighter who missed weight will get an another opportunity to make weight.
My three takeaways from the weigh in are:
1. I really, really hope Michael Bolton walks out to “When a Man Loves a Woman”. Any man named Michael Bolton that walks out to a Michael Bolton song is someone I would not want to be locked inside a cage with.
2. Dustin Johnson looks a lot like the WWE Superstar Sheamus. He also looks a lot like a guy I wouldn’t want to mess with.
3. Kyle Lee may be an amateur but he is a pro and first class all the way. He showed up on time and as the champion, he was dressed for the part. After beating Najee Blackwell to become the CFC champion last August I’m looking forward to see how he does against the younger undefeated prospect from Harris Holt Combat Sports, Caleb Ragsdale.
