MIAMI (AUG. 22, 2013)–Riding on a victory in May, Olympic medalist and Cuban American Alexis Vila is planning on continuing to extend his winning streak, but one man stands in his way, Wascar Cruz. For the first time ever, Bongos Cuban Café, 601 Biscayne Boulevard, will host mixed martial arts with the inaugural series CFA Fight Night 01 at 6:00 p.m. on September 11.

With different restaurants across Florida, Bongos Cuban Café Miami has a two-story open floor layout and spacious terraces setting the perfect vibe for socializing and mixed martial arts. The night’s main event will feature two class athletes. Cruz (4-1) comes in as the underdog as Vila (12-3) just recently defeated Czar Sklavos by way of decision at CFA 11 in May. Cruz is coming off a loss and will be in search of getting back on the winning column. Cruz was defeated by way of submission. Cruz will be making his CFA debut, while Vila will be making his third appearance. The CFA Fight Night series will offer a chance to Florida fighters in search of competition said CFA CEO Jorge de la Noval.
“Why fight anywhere else, when you can fight for the best,” he said. “The CFA Fight Night series will showcase hidden MMA talent in Florida and give a chance to fighters in search of fights that will take them to the next level.” The card will also feature young up-and-coming mixed martial arts like Vincent Pantaleon vs Miguel Restrepo; Luis Hernandez vs. Carlos Rodriguez; Michael Lilly vs Johanner Correa; Marcos Lloreda vs Raynold Telus and more. Card is subject to change.
