Prospects that flower in particular promotions often learn to spread their wings with a slow and steady blending of correct coaching and sharpened skills with the results to match the execution when the final curtain closes on fight camp. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet an artist of Southwestern savagery ready to paint Middleweights a whole new color as he returns to Cage Fury Fighting Championships. A professional mixed martial artist since August 2021 and representing Jackson-Wink MMA, Lydell Poag holds a 2-1 record in three fights with both of his wins coming via knockout. Poag has fought for Legacy Fighting Alliance and Cage Fury Fighting Championships. He is 2-0 under the CFFC banner with two finishes under his belt in two appearances with the organization. 100 percent of Poag’s victories over the course of his career as a professional MMA fighter have come inside the opening round. He has a two for two finish rate with two first round stoppages to show for it in three appearances as a pro thus far. Both of Poag’s finishes during his pro career have come inside of five minutes or fewer with times of 22 seconds and two minutes and 21 seconds respectively in two outings with Cage Fury Fighting Championships.
In his professional MMA debut and promotional debut with Cage Fury Fighting Championships at CFFC 99, Poag faced Starvos Moustakis and went on to knock him out in round one. Then in his second appearance with Cage Fury Fighting Championships at CFFC 103, he defeated Dillion Winemiller via technical knockout in the first round. The victory earned Poag the second knockout win of his professional career in addition to picking up back-to-back victories under the Cage Fury Fighting Championships banner in the process. When Poag zeros in on a opponent’s weak spot, beautiful violence is the result!
