🏟 LIVE REVIEW--🏟 NEF 58 'HOMELAND'--6/29/2024---LEWISTON MAINE --[Start Time 7:00PM EST]



New England Fights is back tonight with an action packed card.  The card is much smaller than the usual NEF style but it will be a solid night nonetheless.  They have a total of 10 fights in which 4 of them are professional ones.  Also they will have 4 title fights which I can't even remember the last time NEF had that.  NEF has a new announcer tonight and the national anthem has just been sung.  They started off the night with a girl's wrestling match which was fun to see!  Now the fights are about to start so please follow along as I do my best to recap the action.

This was another solid night of mixed martial arts action from NEF.  The show went nice and smooth with no hiccups.  New England Fights is back on September 7th in Portland Maine at Club Aura. They didn't announce any upcoming battles but when they do, we will be posting it all over social media.  Michael Lombardo looked impressive as he handled Ryan Sanders and even won by submission which was the only 2nd time that Sanders was submitted.  Also a fun fact is even though this is the 58th NEF event, Ryan Sanders fought on the 1st NEF one which means he has been fighting since 2011.  What a legend.  Thanks to NEF and their team for putting on a great event.
