A welterweight title clash between reigning champion George Sullivan and Brandon Becker will headline Cage Fury Fighting Championship’s May 11 card, promotion officials announced on Monday.

CFFC 24 takes place at the Borgota Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. and also features two bouts previously reported by Sherdog.com, as Sean Santella defends his flyweight crown against Dave Morgan, and former Bellator bantamweight ruler Zach Makovsky makes his promotional debut against Claudio Ledesma in another 125-pound affair.

A Pellegrino MMA product, Sullivan [pictured] is unbeaten in four appearances under the CFFC banner, including three title defenses. Most recently, Sullivan earned a second-round technical knockout victory over “TUF 16” alum Julian Lane at CFFC 19.

Becker, meanwhile, is unbeaten in five professional appearances. The Hoosier MMA representative went the distance for the first time in his career in February, taking a split verdict over Brian Nielson at CFFC 19.
