Pat Sabatini’s (16-3) journey to the UFC has been captivating to say the least. Championships at the regional level, broken arms, a return to championship form, and a UFC debut dashed by not fault of his own. Now the Bristol, PA native is searching for his fourth consecutive UFC win, sixth consecutive overall, and a continued climb in the featherweight rankings.
A mainstay in Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC), Sabatini lost his CFFC Featherweight Championship at CFFC 81 when he refused to tap to James Gonzalez, breaking his arm in the process. He returned to the cage winning his next two fights and reclaiming his featherweight title at CFFC 84 and CFFC 91, respectively.
His performances were enough to earn a call from UFC’s Dana White.
