Three years in the sport and Czar Sklavos takes part in the biggest show of his career at Championship Fighting Alliance (CFA) 11. The card will see the return of transgender fighter Fallon Fox, who garnered attention earlier in the year. Though the spotlight of the show isn’t on Sklavos, he’s ready to leave a lasting impression.
“I think people underestimate me, and they don’t know who I am,” said Sklavos to MMA Junkie. “I’m from some small town in Idaho, so they think I’ll lay down. But I won’t.”
Sklavos is 7-2 with five submissions not escaping the first round. He meets Alexis Vila on the card.
After going undefeated with 11 wins, Vila has dropped his last three. Two defeats came from Bellator and a January loss for CFA.
CFA 11 comes from the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL on May 24. The flyweights and other fights from the card will air on AXS TV.
