Chris Bright vs Ian Swart fight prediction - CFL 01

Cape Fight League 01 is scheduled for this weekend in Cape Town. The main event will be contested between two fighters who are no strangers to each other, Chris Bright and Ian "Chucky" Swart.

On paper this fight seems very much like a mismatch. Chris Bright (#2 MMASA Lightweight Rankings) is somewhat of a legend in the South African MMA scene, carrying a record of 26-3, the Port Elizabeth resident has competed at the highest level and yet to lose in his favoured lightweight division. Ian Swart on the other hand has not won a fight in his last seven appearances, but still has a respectable 11-6 record. Add to this, the fact that Bright dispatched of Swart at EFC 03 in May 2010 and it is no surprise that Chris Bright will be an overwhelming favourite come Saturday night.

This is MMA though, and with Swarts background in boxing, he always carries a punchers chance. Still it would be negligent to predict anything other than a Chris Bright submission victory. The BJJ brown belt is too well versed on the ground, and with his experience in the cage, should have no problem getting Swart to the mat and finishing it from there. I predict Christ Bright to win a one sided fight via submission in the first round.
