[NEF Press Release]

 Lewiston, Maine (August 24, 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 Colisee in Lewiston, Maine.  Earlier today, the promotion announced that Sidney "Da Gun" Outlaw (4-1) had stepped in to replace Brandon Chagnon (5-4) in a professional welterweight bout against Darrius Heyliger (4-2).

Outlaw is a veteran of the national stage, having competed for Bellator, World Series of Fighting (WSOF) and Cage Fury Fighting Championships (CFFC) in the past.  He trains out of Dante Rivera BJJ.  Prior to going professional, Outlaw had a stellar amateur career of 7-1 and captured several regional titles across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

"This is an elite fight," said NEF co-owner and promoter Nick DiSalvo.  "You have two athletes who are maybe one or two solid wins away from getting the call up permanently to the major leagues of the sport.  We always tell our fans to come see these guys now before you can see them on national TV and pay-per-view.  This fight definitely falls in that category."

New England Fights' next event, "NEF XIX," takes place on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston, Maine.  Tickets for "NEF XIX" start at just $25 and are on sale now at or by calling the Colisee box office at 207.783.2009 x 525.  For more information on the event and fight card updates, please visit the promotion’s website at  In addition, you can watch NEF videos at, follow them on Twitter @nefights and join the official Facebook group “New England Fights.”
