HEAVYWEIGHTS PREPARE FOR WAR AT NEF 27

 [NEF Press Release]

Lewiston, Maine (December 7, 2016) –New England Fights (NEF) returns to the Androscoggin Bank Colisee on February 11, 2017 with its next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 27: RESURGENCE."  Earlier today, the fight promotion announced the addition of a professional contest to the card.  Ras "Rasquatch" Hylton (0-0) will make his professional debut against Mike "The Mustache" Hansen (5-4) in the heavyweight division.

Hylton's now-legendary rise through the ranks of the amateur heavyweight division in NEF is one of the major stories of 2016.  At 6'6" and towering over the top of the MMA cage, Hylton cuts an imposing figure.  The only thing more impressive than Hylton's size and appearance might be his athletic abilities.  A prolific striker, Hylton finished all three of his opponents this year by either knockout or technical knockout.

"Rasquatch," or as some fans call him "The Jamaican Shamrock," really began to raise eyebrows with a highlight-reel head kick knockout of Matt Glover (1-1) last spring.  Then, last month at "NEF 26," Hylton pounded an extremely tough Kevin Smith (3-3) to a bloody pulp.  It was immediately after that dominant performance that Hylton's coaches at First Class MMA and Dragon Fire Martial Arts felt the time was right for him to make the jump to the pro ranks.

"I am so grateful to be fighting a man of Mike Hansen's stature in front of my family and friends," said Hylton.  "As the first professional fighter to come out of both Dragon Fire Martial Arts and First Class MMA, and with the instruction of Shihan Andy Campbell, John "First Class" Raio and my team, we are preparing for me to go to war because that is what Mike always brings to the cage."

CLARK VS. CLARK ANNOUNCED FOR NEF 27

[NEF Press Release]

 Lewiston, Maine (December 6, 2016) –New England Fights (NEF) returns to the Androscoggin Bank Colisee on February 11, 2017 with its next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 27: RESURGENCE."  Earlier today, the fight promotion announced the first amateur fight confirmed for the card.  Henry Clark (3-2) is scheduled to face Alex Clark (3-2) at a catchweight of 140-pounds.

Henry Clark fights out of the Choi Institute in Portland, Maine.  With wins over the likes of Sheldon Bang (2-2) and Fred Lear (4-2), Henry earned a shot at the NEF Amateur Bantamweight Title earlier this year.  The finish of the bout was mired in controversy as Henry contended that the referee stoppage resulting in a technical knockout victory for Johnny Crafts (4-1) was actually the result of an illegal eye poke suffered by Clark.

FEATHERWEIGHT FIGHT SCHEDULED FOR NEF 27


[NEF Press Release

 Lewiston, Maine (December 5, 2016) –New England Fights (NEF) returns to the Androscoggin Bank Colisee on February 11, 2017 with its next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 27: RESURGENCE."  Earlier today, the fight promotion announced the addition of a professional featherweight bout to the card.  Josh "Hook On" Harvey (2-0) will meet Richie Collingham (3-3) at a fight weight of 145-pounds.

Harvey is a former NEF MMA Amateur Lightweight Champion.  He turned pro in 2016 after a stellar amateur career that saw him amass a record of 5-1 while facing some of the best the region has to offer.  In his pro debut, Harvey submitted Matt Denning (3-4) in Lewiston last spring.  He would follow up that victory with a win over Zenon Herrera (0-5) in August.  Harvey is a member of Young's MMA in Bangor, Maine.

"I'm training for the fight I want, and this opponent is just one more step closer to where I am going," said Harvey of the upcoming bout with Collingham. "Wishing him a healthy training camp and that he shows up."
