🏟 EVENT REVIEW--🏟NEF 49 'Queen City Showdown'--9/9/2022--BANGOR MAINE-[Start Time 7:00PM EST]


New England Fights is back tonight with their 49th event to date.  They have put together a great card with 8 fights total after one fight got scrapped last minute.  The host of the night is of course Pete Czymbor and the refs are John English and Dale Hart.  I was at Rammstein last night at Gillette stadium so I couldn't make it live but I figured it would be fun to still do the write up the day later.  Hope you all enjoy reading it.

This was another solid show from NEF and the fighters brought it. All but 2 of the fights were finishes which as a fight fan I love to see! The main event was awesome and I hate to see it come down to a controversial decision. I would love to see the main event in future NEF events be 5 rounders for the more experienced pro's. It is a great way for both fighters to get 25 minutes in the cage and also the fight fans get to see more finishes! It is a win for both the fighters and the fans. I do believe if the Watson/Gulfin fight went a few more rounds we would have seen one of them finish. Shout out to NEF for always supporting us and congrats to all the winners. I have to also pay respect to Mike Shorey who is fighting cancer. We are all praying for you buddy. Would you all like to see some 5 round main events at NEF if they are non title fights?? Let's argue in the comments!
