Warrior Nation XFA XI 7/25/15 TEASER


Warrior Nation is pumped to host their 11th show this Saturday in Boxborough Mass.  This will be their second time coming to the Holiday Inn and they are always memorable.  Jesse Camp had a little scare this week as their main event fighter Vovka Clay was injured in training.  He scrambled and found an awesome fighter to step in and keep the title fight intact.  Now Pedro Gonzalez will take on Chris Foster for the coveted WNXFA 145 PRO title.  With that fight intact there are a total of 11 fights and 3 of them are pro.  If that isn't enough to whet your appetite then come out to see the gorgeous Warrior Nation Ring Girls who are so incredible they have their own Facebook account. Also Prime Athletics will be there selling their awesome merchandise.  Follow along as I break down the fight card.

MAINE'S KNOCKOUT KING BACK IN THE CAGE AGAINST BLACK BELT AT NEF XIX


[NEF Press Release]

Lewiston, Maine (July 23, 2015) – New England Fights (NEF), America's number-one regional fight promotion, will hold its nineteenth mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event, "NEF XIX," on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisée in Lewiston, Maine.  Earlier today, the promotion announced the addition of an amateur lightweight bout to the fight card.  Cory Trial (1-1) is scheduled to face the debuting Rafael Velado (0-0) at a fight weight of 155-pounds.

Trial is coming off a huge win at "NEF XVIII" last month.  He knocked out Corey Hinkley (2-4) in just seven seconds of the first round.  In doing so, Trial became the new holder of the NEF fastest knockout record.  The finish was so brutal that Hinkley was taken from the cage on a stretcher by paramedics.  Trial trains under coach Josh Parker at Ruthless MMA & Boxing in Benton, Maine.  He is confident that he will repeat his knockout performance on Velado at "NEF XIX."

"I'm excited to get back in the cage," said Trial.  "Having a seven second knockout and breaking the NEF record was nice, but it wasn't enough.  I've been busting  my ass in the gym with the best coach and I'm ready for anything - but it's inevitable. This fight will end the same way the last one did."
