 Lewiston, Maine (May 28, 2019) – New England Fights (NEF) returns to the Androscoggin Bank Colisee on Saturday, June 22 with its next mixed-martial-arts event, "NEF 39: ALL-AMERICAN." Earlier today, the fight promotion announced the addition of a professional catchweight bout to the card. Keegan "The Flu" Hornstra will face Dominic "Domnation" Jones at a fight weight of 160-pounds.

Keegan Hornstra is coming off a win over Zenon Herrera last month at "NEF 38" in Portland, Maine. It was Hornstra's first time fighting in the NEF cage since 2012. He was able to submit Herrera with a rear-naked choke just over two minutes into the first round. The victory was Hornstra's first in the NEF cage in four attempts. Now, against Jones, he will look for the first back-to-back wins of his professional career. Hornstra represents Evolution Athletix of Saco, Maine.

“Dom is an explosive kid," noted Hornstra. "I’m going to keep it basic, dominate positions, keep it standing, pressure when he starts to fade and put on a show.”

After a stellar amateur career that saw him go 5-1 and win regional titles in his home state of Florida, Dom Jones' professional record currently stands at an even 1-1. Jones made his NEF, and professional, debut in April 2017 at "NEF 28," downing Tollison Lewis via technical knockout late in the first round. Weeks later, at "NEF 29," Jones would go on to suffer his first loss as pro to Matt Denning. After two years off from cage competition, Jones is eager to get back in the fray and jumpstart his professional career. He represents First Class MMA of Brunswick, Maine.

“First, I want to say thank you to NEF having me back," said Jones. "I wasn’t in a good place the last time I fought, but now I’m better and feel I improved during my time off. I don’t know much about my opponent, Keegan, but I have respect for him and congratulate him on his last win. I can’t wait to step back in there!”

"NEF 39: ALL-AMERICAN," will take place on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston, Maine with a bell time of 7 pm. Tickets are on sale now at
