Bangor, Maine (January 10, 2019) – New England Fights (NEF) will hold its next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 37: Sub Zero," on Friday, February 1, 2019 at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine.  Earlier today, the promotion announced the addition of an amateur women's flyweight fight to the card.  Glory Watson (2-0) will take on Rachael Lippert (4-2) at a fight weight of 125-pounds.

 Glory Watson made her mark in the NEF cage in 2018 with wins over Chelsea Tucker and Megan Rosado.  It earned her a nomination in the "Rookie of the Year" category.  She was the runner-up to fellow undefeated amateur rookie Zac Richard (3-0) in fan voting last month.  Watson trains with Young's MMA in Bangor.  The fight with Lippert will be her first in her hometown.

 “I’ve continued to train and challenge myself since my victory in Portland this past November," said Watson.  "I’m really excited to finally make my debut in my hometown to kickstart 2019 with a three-fight run streak over the next three months! I’m looking forward to my return to the cage and to show my supporters the hard work that I’ve been putting in to maintain my career with zero losses!”

Rachael Lippert is also riding a two-fight win-streak into this bout.  Last month, she was victorious on a card in Minnesota put on by national promotion Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA).  She is a 25-year-old with a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu representing Fearless MMA of Janesville, Wisconsin.

 "I am happy to have the opportunity to travel and fight," said Lippert. "At this point, we decided we weren’t going to accept higher weight or lower record fights. This fight is both of those things, but I looked up Glory and she looked like a banger of an opponent. I know how it is to work hard and not get to fight, so I am happy to fill the spot. I am looking forward to a great fight."       

 NEF's next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 37: SUB ZERO," will take place on Friday, February 1, 2019 at Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine with a bell time of 8 pm.  Tickets are on-sale now at
