NEF 44 'BACK IN BLACK' LIVE REVIEW 8/21/2021


[PHOTOS WILL BE ADDED INTO THIS REVIEW IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS]

Warchild and I arrived at the event with plenty of time to spare.  There was a last minute fight drop off and that was Harvey/Beatease fight which was scrapped due to Beatease cancelling today.  The fights are taking place in the Hampshire Dome which is a dome with astroturf.  Poor Ed had to take off his high heels!!  When you walk in you get to go through a spinning door and the food is there.  We then found our way to the cage where we will keep you all up to date throughout the night.  NEF has 18 fights on the night in which 2 of them are kickboxing.  There are also two amateur title fights and 2 professional mma fights.  The lights are nicely done and I have to give props to my buddy Chris Kersch.  When the blue corner is coming out they are using blue lights and vice versa for the red corner.  They are projecting the screen onto the top of the dome so there is no way anybody will miss any of the action.   The national anthem has been played and the fights are ready to start.  The Voice Pete Czymbor is the host of the night and the refs are Kevin MacDonald and John English.  Please follow along while I try to keep up with all the action. 

For those who cannot make it to Milford, the event will also stream live in its entirety at www.CombatSportsNow.com at a price of $29.99.
