Walker’s last three fights were in either the UFC or Bellator and he has years of experience fighting the best featherweights around including Cub Swanson, Cody Stevens, Jeff Curran and Frank Caraballo. Walker is far and away the biggest step up in Cherico’s unblemished career to date. Cherico is coming into the bout fresh off of his best career performance, a first round armbar win over Strikeforce veteran Billy Vaughn. His pending fight with Walker should put him farther up the ladder and onto the big show radar. This match up will be for the first ever PinnacleFC professional title.
Also on the card we have an all-city grudge match between former training partners Khama “The Deathstar” Worthy (2-2) and Maddog gym’s Francis Healy (1-0). Healy and Worthy were scheduled to meet in April but Healy was forced to withdraw due to injury. Khama went on to win a lopsided decision over late replacement Jason Willett and a few weeks later, we are back on track for one of my favorite fights of the year.
PinnacleFC Pittsburgh Challenge Series 3: June 29th
The Pittsburgh Challenge Series will return to the Iceoplex arena in Canonsburg, Pa June 29th featuring some of the area’s best mixed martial artists competing in Pittsburgh’s premiere fighting organization.
The main event features the undefeated Pride of Bloomfield Mark Cherico taking on UFC veteran and regional champion Donny “Eagle Eye” Walker. Also on the card is a fan favorite match up between Francis “Maddog” Healy and Khama “The Deathstar” Worthy. Two amateur titles will be up for grabs as Rich Cantolina tries to derail the undefeated Derrick Wright in the featherweight division and Fadi Shuman takes on Chris Mitchell-Humes AkA Philly Chris in a all city grudge match. Also on the card, Kenny Jackson, Justin Steave and more.
Tickets will be on sale shortly and the full card will be released soon.
Welp folks, its been a long, injury riddled road but here are: Pinnacle fighting championship’s second event in the Pittsburgh Challenge series. I’ll be honest and tell you that I truly had no idea how this event would turn out especially after all of the injuries and card changes.
We even had a ring girl get hurt.
Things ended up turning out pretty great when to be honest, there were times I wasn’t really sure how they would go. Below are the quick results courtesy of Knuckledragger magazine.
145lb Derek Wright w/Dragon’s Den MMA with the Rear Naked Choke win over Josh Flowers fighting out of Bull Penn MMA Rd.1.

This time his opponent will be undefeated professional (and amateur) fighter Anthony “The Spoiler” Morgan (3-0). Morgan hails from the great state of Tennessee and has manhandled the southern circuit. He posted a unanimous decision win over Pinnacle vet Chris Dunn in his last fight which was back in August of 2012. Morgan has a varied combination of Submission/TKO finishes and decision wins on his resume and is the epitome of “well-rounded”. This fight has all the makings of fight of the night with two explosive guys who are on a roll and looking to continue their streak(s).
The overall card is quickly coming together and I think you will be very happy with both line ups.
I’ll let that sink in for just a second before I continue.
Ok, we good?
Worthy is coming into the bout off of a shocking TKO loss to Philly’s Paul Felder (3-0) and Healy is scheduled to make his professional debut later this year. Both guys come to fight and both quickly agreed to make this fight a reality.
These are the type of interesting and intriguing match ups that we are looking to bring you every time out and this is one of those fights that once I knew we were almost done locking it down, I couldn’t wait to leak the news. Things should be made official soon enough but for now this is yet another serious fight we have scheduled for the 20th.
Pinnacle Fighting Championships is pleased to announce it’s second marquis fight for the April 20th Pittsburgh Challenge Series event; a showdown between undefeated Bullpen fighter Josh “The Cake” Baker (5-0) taking on his toughest fight to date in Fight Club Pittsburgh’s Anthony Durnell (12-3). Both Baker and Durnell are coming into the fight off of recent wins and are looking to keep the ball rolling with another “W” in Pittsburgh’s premiere combat organization.
Well friends, haters and fellow readers, I am pleased to tell you that Pinnacle Fighting Championships will be returning to the Iceoplex April 20th with another huge event and believe it or not, the mostly pro card is almost complete. After a very successful inaugural event, we have doubled down on our efforts and will be bringing to you another top tier event like we pulled off in December.
Matchmaker Dave Klick has been hard at work and we have already put together another star studded card featuring some of the area’s top talent including Dave Sachs, Mark Cherico, Todd Bevan, Dom Mazzotta, Francis Healy, Cheyne Jenkins, ghost writer Kyle Rozewski and more. We will be posting the official card here in the upcoming weeks but for now I can tell you about one of our marquis fights on the card.
Mark Cherico (3-0) will be squaring off against Evolve’s Max Ceniceros (4-2) in a featherweight bout that should be Cherico’s toughest draw to date. Ceniceros has spent most of his time fighting on the west coast circuit and is riding a two fight win streak with both fights being finished in the first round.
There will be plenty more fight announcements coming in the following weeks and we will be offering even more options Continue reading →
The event was better than I could have predicted. Aside from a few small mix ups here and there, we were able to put together what I felt was a very respectable inaugural event. Every fight delivered what we expected and then some. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us and the fighters, we couldn’t have pulled it off without you.
