Live MMA Returns to Santa Barbara Earl Warren Showgrounds

California Fight Syndicate Presents “Project Mayhem”

California Fight Syndicate (CFS) is continuing its full-scale takeover of Santa Barbara, CA with “Project Mayhem” on Saturday April 6, 2013.


California Fight Syndicate

CFS, California’s premier fight organization, returns to it’s home venue at the Earl Warren Showgrounds.

The “Project Mayhem” main event features a Lightweight bout between Bren O’neal (SB Fighter) VS Mike Frausto (Team Defiant) for the California Fight Syndicate Lightweight Championship. Bren is coming of a decisive beatdown victory of Marcos Bonilla, who happens to be Mike Frausto’s teammate at Team Defiant. Seeking revenge for his fallen teammate, Mike is going out for more than just the CFS Lightweight Championship; he’s going out for Bren’s blood.

The co-main event features a rematch in the Heavyweight Division between knockout artists Shane Mervau (West Coast) VS Nano Sanchez (Vahalla). Looking to cement his spot atop a stacked division, Shane is looking for one thing and one thing only, to add another knockout to his highlight reel. While, Nano is looking to rebound for a vicious knockout lose to Shane at CFS’s Young Guns and prove he is a force to be reckoned in the division.

Also featured on the card are Kyle Smith VS Marcos Bonilla (Team Defiant), Josh Ruiz (SB Fighter) VS Stephen Garcia , Justin Stheno VS Josh Passmore, and many more.

There will also be guest appearances by former CFS Welterweight Champion and TUF 13: Lesnar VS Dos Santos winner Tony ‘El Cucuy’ Ferguson, Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez, and various other mixed martial art superstars.

If you’re an MMA fan or SoCal native, this is a historic event you cannot afford to miss!
