Cage fighting for CF4CF

Cystic fibrosis is a disease that affects way to many people, and one MMA fighter is helping in the fight to find a cure.

Craig Machado, a 27-year-old MMA fighter for Baltimore BJJ, has been planning his next fight around raising money from sponsors to go to the Cystic Fibrosis Fund of Maryland.

If you are interested in donating, check out the webpage on the CFF website to make your donations. Remember any amount helps.

“The deal: you sponsor me in my next fight. If I win, you double the money. It is that simple,” Machada said.

Craig Machado is training for his upcoming title fight June 19 where he is raising money for cystic fibrosis in honor of a friend who passed four years ago.

Here is an excerpt from the webpage:

[CF4CF4CF—> Cage Fighting 4 Catherine’s Fund 4 Cystic Fibrosis

Basically, I want to raise money for cystic fibrosis in the memory of my good friend, Catherine Hilseburg Baughman. She died four years ago but through CF4CF, we keep her memory alive. (

My idea: I am a MMA fighter and have an upcoming title fight June 19. I want to get sponsors for this fight. The deal: if I win, double what you pledged. Any amount is appreciated.

I want to thank my coach from Baltimore BJJ, Lee Synkowski and striking coach Rahsaan Kimbrow from for working with me and getting me this far.

All my sponsors who have been there for all my previous fights– Stotler Chiropractic and VU skateshop—and all my new sponsors–Coach Falcon’s Fit Bodies, Terrapin K-9 Academy and Recher Theater in Towson– I greatly appreciate you putting up with and sticking with me.

Help out a great cause, guys. Catherine was an awesome girl and I won’t let her down so with your help we can do something great in her memory.]
