Las Vegas, NV, (November 12, 2018) – It’s going to end in either a Knockout or Submission. That is exactly what two heavyweights have guaranteed for their “FFC 34” matchup on November 16th at Fight Dome located at Caesars Entertainment’s Rio Las Vegas.

Marius Costinel Cantoneru (0-1-0) of Romania will battle Zachary Cavender, of Tooele, UT (0-0-0) who will be making his pro debut on November 16th.

The good thing for fight fans is that both fighters share the same sentiment that fighters should decide the outcomes of their fights and not judges.

“If you don’t show up to finish your opponent then you’re doing all wrong,” said Cavender. “A real fighter never leaves the outcome in the hands of the judges.”

“I am coming to rip my opponent’s leg off,” said Cantoneru. “This fight will not go the distance because I will get rid of him (Cavender) quickly because he can’t handle my power, there will be no judging necessary.”

Cavender was Undefeated (5-0) as an Amateur with four knockouts and one submission. The game plan for his Pro Debut is quite simple.

“If he (Cantoneru) is a striker I’m going to knock him out, if he is a grappler I’m going to take him to the ground and I’m going to pound him out or choke him out,” said Cavender. “I’m a new age mixed martial artist, I don’t have a speciality I think you should be prepared to finish the fight no matter where the fight is located, and that is what I plan to do Friday night.”

As for Cantoneru, who turned pro in 2017, he is an exciting fighter who gives the fans what they want, an action-filled fight that they won’t soon forget.

“I’m going to put on a show for these fans, because I’m not messing around inside that ring,” said Cantoneru. “I come to kill my opponent, that is my strategy, I like pain but I like handing out pain even more, and that’s what you’ll see at FFC 34.”

Both fighters are excited about fighting in Las Vegas and they boldly guarantee that their fight will provide fans with the most fireworks.

FFC CEO/Founder, Orsat Zovko, weighs in on this November 16th matchup.

“As you can tell the confidence level is sky high with both of these young fighters,” said Zovko. “They’re both solid wrestlers who like to ground and pound and they’re not afraid to stand and trade punches either.”

It is pretty safe to say that if this fight (Cantoneru vs. Cavender) goes the distance, many of us will be thoroughly shocked.

“FFC 34” gets underway on Friday evening, November 16th. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. (PST) and the first fight is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
