Championship Fighting Alliance Weigh-Ins Heated Between Palomino and Warfield, Title Fight Green Lit (PHOTOS)
Fighters, fans, and media gathered at the Miccosukee Resort & Gaming Casino last night for the Championship Fighting Alliance's weigh-ins for tonight's CFA 06 event.
CFA 06's much hyped main event is scheduled to be a 155-pound championship fight between Luis Palomino and James Warfield. There was an initial scare as Warfield initially tipped the scales just over 158-pounds.
But never fear, "The Unbreakable Heavy Hitter" was given an allotted time to try and cut the remaining pounds and eventually made the cut to 156.25-pounds. Earlier today the CFA official website announced earlier today that the "green light was given" to both fighters.
Plenty of bragging rights will be on the line as Palomino and Warfield have continually toed a fine line between respect and trash talk leading up to this fight. The weigh-ins were the accumulation of this as heated words were exchanged between both fighters.
