Orono, Maine (July 16, 2019) – New England Fights (NEF) will debut in Orono on September 7, 2019 at the Collins Center for the Arts with the promotion's next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 40: School of Hard Knocks."  Earlier today, NEF announced the addition of an amateur featherweight title fight to the card.  Tom "The Phenom" Pagliarulo (3-1) is scheduled to defend the 145-pound amateur championship against Jimmy Jackson (4-3).

 Tom Pagliarulo captured the amateur featherweight title this past spring at "NEF 38" with a unanimous decision victory over then-undefeated Zac Richard (3-2-1).  Pagliarulo's success in the cage comes as no surprise.  An accomplished athlete on the wrestling mats, Pagliarulo put together a record of 144-36 while competing for Central Catholic High School in Lawrence, Massachusetts.  Later, he wrestled for Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire prior to making the foray into mixed-martial-arts.  Pagliarulo currently trains at both Spero's MMA and Burgess MMA in New Hampshire.  The fight with Jackson will be his first defense of the title.

 “I'm looking forward to defending my strap against a very game opponent," said Pagliarulo. "My last fight a lot of people doubted me, and the odds were against me. On September 7th, I'm going to give them a reason to never doubt me again. I'm the champ, and I'm here to stay.”

 “Tom Pagliarulo is the NEF champion for a reason," stated NEF co-owner and matchmaker Matt Peterson.  "His wrestling is as slick as a whistle, and his conditioning never quits. He trains like a title holder should train. He travels to get with the best coaches he can find, he competes in wrestling and other sports when he’s not fighting in the cage—he designs his life around developing the skills to be the best. And when a man does that—he’s dangerous.”

N. PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (July 17, 2019) – CES MMA heavyweight World champion Greg “Ribz” Rebello is looking forward to his first title defense Friday night, July 26 at CES MMA 57, streaming on UFC FIGHT PASS®, the world’s leading digital subscription service for combat sports, live from Twin River Casino Hotel in Lincoln, Rhode Island.

Rebello captured the CES MMA crown on February 2, 2018, when he defeated UFC veteran Travis Wiuff by way of a first-round knockout via punches.

The 37-year-old Rebello, fighting out of Cranston, RI, takes on first-time title challenger Kevin “The North Woods” Haley), of Rollinsford, New Hampshire, in a battle between friends.

“Defending my title for the first time means a lot to me,” Rebello said.  “I believe you’re not really a champion until you defend it.

“We’re buddies.  I know everything about Kevin, this isn’t personal, we both just love to fight.  He’s not bringing anything into the cage that I haven’t seen before.”
