We have been busy here at keeping you up to date on all the local fight announcements happening in New England, but one story deserves a write up.  Premier FC announced that Joe Reverdes will be fighting Mike Mangan on Premier's upcoming show July 30, 2016 at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield, MA.  Joe is a 2-3 pro from Rhode Island stepping into this fight.  Mike Mangan is an 0-3 from Team Thunder MMA.  Also fighting on the card will be Joe's son Aaron Reverdes against Kenny Champion out of Speedschool in CT.  Aaron has a record of 0-1 as he fought a bloody battle against Brendan Marotte at a previous CES event.

Now, of course many father/son duos have fought on cards before, but what makes this one special is that this will be Joe Reverdes's retirement fight.  Everyone who has been involved in mixed martial arts knows Joe Reverdes.  He is always smiling and saying "hi" to everyone.  He has been involved in MMA for a long time and also rents out the cages to many of the local promotions.  Joe is always willing to help out anyone in any way that he can, and I, for one, am not going to miss his final appearance in the MMA cage.  With this being his last fight in the cage, and his son stepping into the MMA cage for the second time in his career, Joe will be passing on his MMA torch in which I deem the "MMA circle of life."  This night to me will be a memorable one, and it was a cool story I wanted to make you all aware of.  Contact Joe to buy tickets from him any other fighter mentioned to show your support.
