After scoring an unbelievable knockout in the main event of Cage Fury FC 121, Raheam Forest thinks he’s ready to step up and compete in the UFC.
The featherweight title battle between Jose Perez and Chris Vasil was meant to headline CFFC 121, but after that fight was canceled on weigh-in day, the welterweight co-featured event between Forest and Treston Vines was moved to the night’s main event.
“Rambo” entered the night having suffered his first professional loss in a title fight against Charlie Radtke at CFFC 118 in April, but Forest soon erased that memory by destroying Vines in only 26 seconds.

As Vines rose to his feet, Forest fired with tremendous blows, and even as his opponent began to collapse to the mat, Forest continued to land massive shots.
Forest, who is now 7-1 as a professional with five first-round finishes, was asked what his next bout will be following the victory. Rather of requesting another shot at the CFFC welterweight belt, “Rambo” immediately approached UFC President Dana White and stated that he was ready for a fight in the UFC.
Forest’s fast victory over Vines capped off an action-packed CFFC 121 event in Tunica, Mississippi. Every fight on the main card was stopped, with three of those finishes coming in the first round.
