 Lewiston, Maine (June 7, 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."  Just one day after announcing the 16-fight card for the event, the promotion added a special attraction to the event.  For the first time ever, a wedding ceremony will take place live in the NEF cage as "The King in the North" "Killa" Kam Arnold will tie the knot with his longtime partner Ciara Rosario.

 Kam Arnold is the reigning NEF Amateur Bantamweight Champion.  His start in the sport of MMA has been nothing short of legendary.  He is 5-0 with five knockouts.  In 2018, Arnold was voted the "Fighter of the Year" by NEF fans.  But for all he has done in the NEF cage, his most memorable moment is yet to come when he marries the woman he loves on June 22 before thousands of fans in Lewiston.

 “Perfect moments—something I believe everyone strives to experience within their lives, if they’re fortunate enough," said Arnold.  "I have been more than lucky in my life to experience such moments. June 22nd is going to be a night I will consider a 'perfect moment.' My best friend and lover in life, Ciara Lynn Rosario, and I will join hand-in-hand and say 'I do' in front of everyone we love and appreciate at the Colisee inside NEF’s famous hexagon right here in the city we love to call home, Lewiston. I can’t begin to express my gratitude for everyone here at NEF, these guys and gals have been nothing but family to me right from the start. For them to be so willing and want to be a part of this just really shows you what kind of folks they are. We appreciate every person from the fans, fighters, promotion, media, cameramen, corners, security and—last but not least—our friends, families, sponsors and supporters. We love you all and hope you join us, hand-in-hand. Thank you!"

 “This will be a night I will never forget," said Arnold's bride Ciara Rosario.  "I never really dreamt about getting married until I met Kam. When I met him, there was a spark that went off when we first locked eyes and I know that sounds like some fairytale, but it’s real. When you’re with the right person, you just know. Getting married June 22nd during the 'NEF 39: All-American' card isn’t the 'traditional' way, but it’s our way. To have all of our family and friends joined with us on this very special night is all we could ever dream of. Kameron and I have nothing but love and gratitude for everyone in the NEF family, along with all our supporters and fans. That’s why we want everyone to be with us for this memorable event so let’s get this win with love and a night to never forget!”

 “Kam Arnold is one of the most prolific knockout artists in NEF promotional history," noted NEF matchmaker and co-owner Matt Peterson. "He’s no stranger to creating epic moments inside the hexagon, so how cool is it that he will do it again on June 22nd by joining his beautiful bride, Ciara, in becoming the first couple to ever be married inside the NEF cage? We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime occasion with Kam, Ciara, their friends and families—and a few thousand rabid fight fans at “NEF 39: All-American.” Thank you Kam and Ciara for allowing us to be a part of your special day.”

 "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
