CFFC 91 video: Pat Sabatini scores vacant title with armbar submission

Entering Friday’s CFFC 91, the promotion’s featherweight title didn’t have a belt-holder.

In the card’s main event, Pat Sabatini changed that with a slick, second-round armbar submission of fellow regional veteran Jesse Stirn.

After a dominant first round, Sabatini (13-3) dragged Stirn (10-4) to the ground in Round 2. From there, he worked his way up to an armbar, pulled guard, and locked in a torque that was too tight for Stirn to handle. Sabatini picked up another submission win and, with it, title gold.

The title-clinching performance marks the second time Sabatini, 30, has won the CFFC featherweight championship.

Sabatini’s win is his second in a row – and his fifth in his most recent six fights. His lone loss in the stretch was suffered via a gruesome arm injury in 46 seconds and lost his title to James Gonzalez. In 13 professional victories, Sabatini has scored 10 submissions and one knockout.

CFFC 91 took place Friday at Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, Penn. The card streamed on UFC Fight Pass.
