Abad defends Amateur Featherweight Title v. Marotte in Combat Zone MMA co-main event Aug. 5

[CZ Press Release]

SALEM, NH-- Although Danny "El Principe" Abad trains at New Mexico's Jackson Wink, arguably the world's most prestigious MMA gym, the Sports Club at Rockingham Park has become home for him the past few years. Now Abad returns to The Rock for his first Combat Zone MMA Amateur Featherweight title defense and takes on local challenger Brendan Marotte in the co-main event of CZ 59 "Rock On" August 5.

"This is a big fight for me," said the 20-year-old Marotte (3-1-0), who hails from Hampstead, NH is a personal fitness trainer at Title Boxing Club in Manchester. "My first fight was a loss, and then I went on a rampage and won all of my next fights. I wanted to fight for a title and found out that Danny was looking to fight once more as an amateur before he goes pro. I talked to my coaches and told them to set it up."

Marotte started training with former world lightweight champion and two-time Bellator tournament champ Rick Hawn four months ago, and his turnaround has been remarkable in his pair of appearances since. The evidence is Marotte's first round TKO via strikes in only 1:09 in Combat Zone 58 May 13 and his second round TKO via strikes in 2:08 the last time he climbed into the cage June 18.

Cage Titans announced their main event the other day via their Snapchat and man it is going to be a good one.  It is between Remo Cardarelli, a 6-3 fighter from Rivera Athletics against Darren Mima (8-4).  Now this is a rematch and the first time they fought was for CES and Mima won via a nasty slam that rocked Remo.  Remo has fought two other rematches in his career against Andy Aeillo and Billy Giovanella in the past and has won both of the rematches so expect a totally different fighter in this one.  Mima, The Mean One will be looking to show his first W against Remo was no fluke.  Expect fireworks and stay right here as we share with you more Cage Titan leaks.


[CES Press Release]

Marquis Brewster is looking to shed his “hot prospect” label when he returns to the ‪#‎CESMMA‬ cage at #CES37 versus Timothy Wheeler at Twin River Casino on August 12.
Get your tickets here ➡
And the well-rounded ‪#‎Providence‬ product knows the best way to move up the CES MMA ladder in a hurry: Finish his opponents in style.

“Absolutely. I’m looking to establish my name, especially with this fight in August, and I’m looking for a big finish. It’s great to win fights, which is what I’m doing, but everyone loves stoppages and that’s the best way to move up and eventually get that CES MMA title shot. I’m going to put on a show, finish my opponent, and I can’t wait,” said Brewster, an apprentice to CES MMA Lightweight Champion Luis Felix.
But standing in Brewster’s way is Wheeler, a hard-hitting ‪#‎NewYork‬ product who’s making his CES MMA debut.
Wheeler doesn’t care about any prospect in ‪#‎NewEngland‬, he says. But he’s excited to spoil Brewster’s coming-out party in front of his supporters.

“I went all the way to ‪#‎Hawaii‬ to steal the show before. It was fun, and I’ll be doing it again -- just a little closer to home this time,” said Wheeler with a laugh. “I’m going to put my opponent away and spoil all his fans’ fun.”

CES MMA 37 also features three CES MMA Championship bouts: ‪#‎Woonsocket‬’s Andre “The Asian Sensation” Soukhamthath collides with ‪#‎Boston‬’s Kin “Kong” Moy for the Bantamweight Championship, ‪#‎Hartford‬’s Matt “The Mangler” Bessette squares up with ‪#‎Gloucester‬’s Pedro “The Beast” Gonzalez for the Featherweight Championship, and #Providence's Greg “Ribz” Rebello throws down with ‪#‎Arizona‬'s Ashley “Gio” Gooch, for the Heavyweight Championship.

[NEF Press Release]

Bangor, Maine (July 12, 2016) – Earlier today, New England Fights (NEF) announced the fight card for the promotion's August 5, 2016 event at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine.  Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White will be present at the event to scout talent for his web show Dana White: Lookin' for a Fight.  Eight professional mixed-martial-arts (MMA) bouts will be presented before White.  Sixteen competitors will look to impress the UFC boss and earn a contract with the largest MMA promotion in the world.

In the main event, "The Fearless" Alfred Khashakyan (7-2) will face Brazilian prospect Ricardo Lucas Ramos (8-1) in a bantamweight contest.  Based out of Glendale, California, Khashakyan is a finisher, having won seven of his last eight bouts via knockout or technical knockout.  Khashakyan will be in good company on August 5 as his opponent does not believe in letting the judges decide the winner either.  Seven of Ramos' eight wins have been finishes, including five submissions.

Maine lightweights Jon Lemke (5-5) and Jesse "The Viking" Erickson (7-5) will meet in a rematch of their Bellator 93 bout from 2013.  Lemke won the first battle in Lewiston via first round technical knockout.  Both Erickson and Lemke have recently challenged for the NEF MMA Professional Lightweight Title.  They are two of the top-ranked fighters in the state at 155-pounds.
