[NEF Press Release]

Lewiston, Maine (November 20, 2014) –New England Fights (NEF), America's number-one regional fight promotion, presents its sixteenth mixed martial arts (MMA) event, “NEF XVI,” on February 7, 2015 in Lewiston, Maine.  The event is scheduled to originate from the Androscoggin Bank Colisee.  Earlier today NEF announced the addition of a professional lightweight bout to the fight card.  Jesse "The Viking" Erickson (3-4) will look to get back on the winning track after dropping two in a row when he faces John "Little" Healey (0-1).

Erickson, the former number-one contender to the NEF MMA Lightweight Title, is coming off back-to-back losses to reigning champion Bruce "Petty Boy" Boyington (9-7) at "NEF XIV" and "NEF XV" respectively.  Up until that time, Erickson had never lost two fights in a row.  The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) coach from Central Maine BJJ in Auburn, Maine is now put in the position where he needs a win to stay in the lightweight title picture.  Erickson has his sights set on Healey, and he claims to be hungry to climb back in the NEF MMA cage in the new year.

We stopped by the Rockingham Mall across from the venue and ate some grub before heading to the show.  We meandered our way into the cageside area and quickly took a spot.  There were many familiar faces around the venue.  They are all pumped for the last Combat Zone of the year.  John Vena was the host for the evening.  The judges are Mike Walls, Flano and Alan Lau.  The referees are Kevin MacDonald and John English.  There are 9 fights total and 4 of them are professional ones.  DJ Mark Oliveri is handling the sound for the evening.  The two ring girls are looking beautiful and major props to one of the girls filling in for the open spot just a few hours before the event! Fights are about to start so please follow along with us as we recap the evening.

COMBAT ZONE 51 11/21/2014 TEASER

After a few months off, Combat Zone is returning to their home in Salem NH with their 51st show to date.  The card features nine fights in which 4 of them are professional bouts.  I have just received the updated fight card to share with you all.  Combat Zone's matchmaker Ryan Fennelly has done an excellent job once again setting up solid match ups.  This will be the last mixed martial arts show in New Hampshire that I am aware of and its going to be a blast so come check it out!  CZ 51 tickets are still available but no longer online for this show, only at the door at the Rockingham Park.  The doors open at 6:30 and I believe fights should start around 7:30pm.  Let me break down the fight card for you in its entirety.  Please keep in mind that this will most likely not be in the exact fight order during fight day.
