[Combat Zone Press Release]
SALEM, NH—Taylor Trahan, who rose to prominence while fighting as an amateur in Combat Zone MMA events at Rockingham Park, returns as a professional to headline the main event of the promotion’s “Carpe Diem” stacked card in a featherweight battle against Evan Parker at the racetrack on Friday, September 26.
Trahan, 4-1 as a pro, won five of his eight previous fights for Combat Zone and enters the cage fresh from a February 21st third round submission of Bellator fighter Joseph Pingitare in his last bout. Parker (4-2) has been idle since scoring a TKO over Fernando Perez in 2011 and he’ll have to face a Rockingham Park crowd that has been partial to Trahan since his first fight just five days after his 18th birthday.
“It will be nice to be back there. People there have always been very supportive of me over the years and it means a lot,” said Trahan, who is now 23 and a married man after swapping vows with his wife, Shannon, only one month ago.

We arrived at the venue with plenty of time to find our seats. As we parked in the event parking area we walked to the sound of the drums and the rock music. Outside Ed and I received our free kuze before entering the beautiful Lowell Memorial. We then found our seats at the press table and quickly hooked up to power. The super friendly ring girls were outside taking photos with the fans which added a nice touch to the show. Kelly MacDonald and Krystyne were a huge help in hooking us up with excellent spots so we can provide the best coverage for you all. There are a total of 6 fights for the evening and two of them are professional fights. John Vena is the host for the evening and the refs are Gary Foreman and Kevin MacDonald. They just announced ECFC 3 is set to take place November 14th, 2014 so mark your calendars. Now let's get to the fights!
Here is the main event from the NEF show that took place last weekend. This is an awesome battle between two tough fighters and man Ray makes it look easy in there!

East Coast Fighting Championship returns this Friday at the Lowell Memorial in Lowell Massachusetts. They have been working around the clock to get fighters matched back up after many injuries happening, but it is indeed happening. ECFC has just shared with us the updated fight card and it features 7 fights total in which 2 of them are professional. Tickets are on sale starting at just $40 here and let me tell you they are 7 solid match ups. Joe Cloutier is finally having a fight after a few shows of having opponents back out and also Joey Gomez is taking on Jeremy Pender! The Lowell Memorial feels very much like the Plymouth Memorial except I believe it is slightly bigger capacity. Let me break down the fight card for you...
