EFC Warrior set for Trump Taj Mahal tonight

The EFC: WARRIOR MMA Event is set for the Grand Ballroom at Trump Taj Mahal Casino Hotel in Atlantic City tonight.

"We have our first female main event, which is the rematch of a sensational fight," said event co-promoter Hani Darwish when talking about the card. "Plus we have two other title fights between some of the most popular fighters in Jersey. The entire card is strong top to bottom and the fans have acknowledged it by supporting the young fighters in this event."

Darwish says he's happy to be working with the Taj Mahal to build this successful MMA series.

"The Trump with their slot specials for ticket buyers and their overall professionalism to work with has been wonderful. It truly is a perfect situation to be in as a promoter and I'm very grateful. I'm looking forward to another unforgettable event this Saturday.

EFC WARRIOR will feature in its main event Maryland MMA fighter Roya Darvishian (5-2) taking on Whippany, New Jersey's Jen Lopez (4-1) EFC Women's Bantamweight Championship in the featured bout, as well as two more title fights, as Gabriel Ruiz (3-2) of the EFC Fight Club in Woodland Park, NJ will face Jovany Alvarez (4-2) from Modern Martial Arts in Englishtown, NJ, for the EFC Featherweight Championship; and the always exciting Barat Jan (3-0) of Eagle Martial Arts in Boonton, NJ, will take on Victor Romero (3-3) of Modern Martial Arts in Englishtown, NJ, for the EFC Middleweight Championship.
