--THE WRAP UP--

What a night of fights it was.  The fighters all brought it and it showed.  The stream played beautifully and looked great.  There were lots of memorable moments but one that I was impressed the most with is Nasty Nate Williams continuing to shine in New England with another big win over a tough opponent in Zach DiSabatino.  Cage Titans will be returning on November 11th for their final show of 2023 and I am looking forward to see how stacked that card will be to finish the year out strong.  Special thanks to Cage Titans and their team for putting on another solid event.  Stay right and follow all our socials to keep up with all the latest happenings in New England.
