GRIMARD READY TO CAP OFF BREAKOUT YEAR ON NOVEMBER 5TH 🏆


[NEF PRESS RELEASE]

From the pandemic to the perils of matchmaking at the amateur level, Nathaniel Grimard has made it clear he won’t let anything stand in the way of his aspirations to move up the mixed martial arts ladder.
In a historical chapter where it has been challenging to stay busy in an up-close-and-personal sport and tempting to pad your record with a spoon-fed opponent or two if the opportunities arise, Grimard is a newly crowned champion about to enter a cage for the fourth time in 2021.

Grimard (4-0) will defend his New England Fights 145-pound amateur belt against Billy “The Kid” Wilson (6-1) at “NEF 45: Uprising” on Friday, November 5 at Aura in Portland, Maine. Opening bell time is 7 p.m.

“I’m pretty excited. It’s a tough guy from a good gym,” Grimard said. “It’s going to be my toughest fight yet. I got offered a few opponents, and I took the toughest one I could get. He’s a good wrestler just like me, so I think it’s going to be a pretty back-and-forth fight.”

On a night that coincides with the 416th anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot in jolly, old England, the 23-year-old Grimard constitutes anything but a surprise attack.

An accomplished wrestler at Exeter High School and the University of Southern Maine – he graduated from the latter with a degree in criminal justice – Grimard’s co-conspirator in his climb through the ranks is none other than UFC veteran and noted New England warrior Devin Powell.

BJ GARCEAU WILL RETURN TO THE CAGE AT NEF 45 AGAINST HAYLEY MARTIN


[NEF PRESS RELEASE]

Portland, Maine (October 7, 2021) – New England Fights (NEF) returns with its next mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event, “NEF 45: Uprising,” on Friday, November 5, 2021, at Aura in Portland, Maine.  Earlier today, NEF announced the addition of an amateur women’s strawweight bout to the fight card.  BJ Garceau will meet Hayley Martin at a fight weight of 115 pounds.

The fight will see Garceau (1-1) return to the NEF cage after a three-year absence.  She made her debut at “NEF 32” in February 2018 with a split decision win over Sarah Ziehm (1-2).  Garceau then lost via technical knockout to Chelsea Tucker (3-3) in the third round of their bout at “NEF 36” in the fall of that year.  She had been scheduled to make her return to action at “NEF 43” in 2020 until the COVID-19 pandemic forced the postponement of the event.  Garceau represents Young’s MMA of Bangor, Maine.

“I can’t believe I’m stepping back into the cage again this November,” exclaimed Garceau. “When we had to stop training last year, I felt like I lost my family, my health, and that hit me hard mentally and physically. I was a mess. So once (Young’s MMA head coach) Chris Young and so many other amazing coaches from other gyms said ‘come home’ a/k/a ‘get back into the gym,’ I finally felt whole again once we were on the mats.  I didn’t think it would happen again, but honestly after everything that’s been going on in the world and personally the past 18-months, I’ve never wanted to fight this bad.  I’m thankful for the opportunity and honestly it could have been anyone standing across from me at this point. I am happy to throw down with Hayley, and promise I will not let anyone down in that cage!  I would say more, but I gotta go train. Let’s do this!”

Hayley Martin will be making her in-cage debut in the fight with Garceau at “NEF 45” - just a few weeks after celebrating her 50th birthday.  Martin is an independent fighter whose dream it has been to actively compete in MMA.

 “I’m beyond excited to step into the cage, test my skills and show what hard work and dedication looks like,” said Martin.  “I’m on this journey because I have never felt anything that makes me feel more alive, strong and confident. And when that moment happens on November 5th, I will leave it all in the cage and fight my ass off for every woman that thought dreams can’t come true.”

 “NEF 45: Uprising” takes place on Friday, November 5, 2021, at Aura in Portland, Maine.  Doors open at 6 pm with first fight at 7 pm.  Tickets are on sale now at www.Ticketmaster.com.

POLITIS AND GÜNTER TO SQUARE OFF FOR BANTAMWEIGHT TITLE IN PORTLAND



[NEF PRESS RELEASE]

New England Fights (NEF) returns with its next mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event, “NEF 45: Uprising,” on Friday, November 5, 2021, at Aura in Portland, Maine.  Earlier today, NEF announced the addition of an amateur bantamweight title bout to the fight card.  Teddy Politis (2-0) will take on Felipe Günter (3-0) for the vacant NEF Amateur Bantamweight Championship.

Undefeated Teddy Politis has proved himself to have a powerful submission game early in his career.  He made his amateur debut at “NEF 42” in February 2020 with an impressive first-round submission win over Kevin Lemay (0-1) via Kimura.  This past summer at “NEF 44,” Politis returned to the cage and submitted Tyler Parent (0-1) in the first round with an arm triangle choke.  Politis represents Evolution Athletix based in Saco, Maine.

 “I’m super humbled that I am being chosen to fight for an NEF belt,” said Politis.  “I’m excited for a five-round fight and eager to showcase my abilities. I’m proud to represent my team and be the manifestation of all the time and energy my coaches have put into me.  Aura on November 5th is going to be insane and I’m looking forward to walking out in front of that crowd again.”

 Like Politis, Felipe Günter has yet to taste defeat in the MMA cage.  He made his NEF amateur debut in November 2018 at “NEF 36” with a second-round submission of Schuyler Vaillancourt (1-2). Günter followed up that win with a unanimous decision victory over Hannon Sanford (0-2) at “NEF 42.”  Last month in Vermont, he re-matched Vaillancourt and again came away with a win by submission – this time in the first round.  Günter represents First Class MMA based in Brunswick, Maine.  Prior to competing in MMA, Günter wrestled for Mt. Ararat High School in Topsham, Maine.

 “I'm excited to finally get that belt,” stated Günter.  “My wrestling coaches always believed I could become a champion and unfortunately because of my own self doubts and lack of discipline in my younger years, I was never able to acquire that state title. A few months ago one my wrestling coaches who was also one of my biggest mentors growing up passed away. I re-read some of the emails we exchanged and saw his encouraging words once again, which sparked something within me. I've been working hard on improving every aspect of my game during this pandemic and I can't wait to display that in the NEF cage this November. This one's for you coach Reese.”

 “NEF 45: Uprising” takes place on Friday, November 5, 2021, at Aura in Portland, Maine.  Doors open at 6 pm with first fight at 7 pm.  Tickets are on sale now at www.Ticketmaster.com.

RICHARD SCHEDULED TO THROW DOWN WITH LANGSTON AT NEF 45 IN PORTLAND


[NEF PRESS RELEASE]

Portland, Maine (September 29, 2021) – New England Fights (NEF) returns with its next mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event, “NEF 45: Uprising,” on Friday, November 5, 2021, at Aura in Portland, Maine.  Earlier today, NEF announced the addition of a professional catchweight bout to the fight card.  Zac Richard is scheduled to meet Carl Langston at a fight weight of 140 pounds.

The fight will be the pro debut for Zac Richard who put together a record of 6-3-1 as an amateur.  He is a former NEF Amateur Lightweight Champion, having defeated Mike Murray (3-2) for the strap in November 2019 at “NEF 41.”  Richard’s only loss to date in the NEF cage came at “NEF 38” at the hands of Tom Pagliarulo (2-0).  Before competing in MMA, Richard was a success on the wrestling mats.  He won a state title in 2015 as a senior wrestling for Massabesic High School in Waterboro, Maine.  Richard currently represents Evolution Athletix based in Saco, Maine.

“I had a very active amateur career,” noted Richard.  “Had some ups and had some downs, but November 5th we start fresh again. I’m very excited to make the step up to the pros, and I’m sure Carl and I will give the fans a show.”

Carl Langston is a longtime veteran of the NEF cage, having made his debut with the promotion at “NEF 11” in November 2013.  Prior to competing in MMA, Langston was a practitioner of taekwondo for which he won a silver medal in 1999 and a gold medal in 2000 in the Junior Olympics.  His most recent fight was at “NEF 42” in Portland – a loss to Jacob Deppmeyer (2-0).  Langston represents Young’s MMA of Bangor, Maine.

“We all know I have every tool to finish him,” said Langston.  “I just gots to show up mentally and I will. This time off has allowed me to really focus on the mental part of the sport and come November 5th, I’m cashing in and getting my hand raised. There really isn’t much to say. Everyone knows my talent, so it’s just time to go out there and put it all together.”
