Orono, Maine (July 17, 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 a professional bantamweight bout to the card.  Fred Lear (0-1) will take on Tommy "The Irish Beast" Kenney (0-2) at a fight weight of 135-pounds.

 Fred Lear had a prolific, and successful, career as an amateur fighter in the NEF cage.  He captured the NEF amateur bantamweight title in August 2017 before his hometown fans in Bangor, Maine.  Earlier this year, he went to war in a draw with Zac Richard (3-2-1) in what is the frontrunner thus far for "Fight of the Year" in 2019.  In the spring, Lear made his professional debut against Bryant Bullock (2-0).  It was not the successful debut Lear, a product of Young's MMA, had hoped for.  He was submitted late in the second round by Bullock.  Lear will look for his first win as a professional on September 7.

It is a balmy 97 degrees in West Springfield and what would be better to do then see some mma action in the cage.  Warchild and I made the trip to the Young’s building at the Big E and quickly found our spot.  There are seats around the cage and then some bleachers in the back.  There is a West Side Grille inside for people to get their drinks and food.  Did I mention that it also has air conditioning in there?  To start off the night Ammo will have 4 grappling matching and following that 12 mma fights.  Out of the 12 fights there will be 2 amatuer title fights and also 5 of them will be pro fights.  If my eyes don’t deceive me I think I spy with my little eye 6 ring girls.  The show is about to start so please follow along as I recap the night.
