Portland, Maine (February 18, 2019) - New England Fights (NEF) will present its next mixed-martial-arts (MMA) event, "NEF 38: STORMBORN," on April 27, 2019 at Aura in Portland.  Earlier today, the fight promotion announced the addition of a professional lightweight fight to the card.  Caleb Hall will take on Jay Ellis at a fight weight of 155-pounds.

 Hall is on a five-fight win streak in the NEF cage going back to his amateur days.  His last loss for the promotion was more than four years ago at "NEF 16" against current professional featherweight champion Josh Harvey.  Hall closed out his amateur career with three straight wins, including capturing the amateur 145-pound strap.

 He continued that success into the professional ranks in 2018.  In his pro debut last spring, Hall submitted veteran John Ortolani in the first round with a Von Flu Choke.  He followed up that performance with another first round submission, this time over CJ Ewer via D'Arce Choke this past September at "NEF 35."

 Hall cut his teeth on the wrestling mats of Dirigo High School in Dixfield, Maine where he was a two-time state champion.  He now represents the Choi Institute based out of Recon Fitness in Portland.

 "I am happy to be fighting in Portland at Aura again," said Hall of the upcoming April 27 bout against Jay Ellis.  "I am looking to pick up where I left off in 2018 and continuing my winning streak."

 NEF's next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 38: STORMBORN," will take place on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at Aura in Portland, Maine with a bell time of 7 pm.  Tickets are on sale now at
