NEF Fight Night V Preview
From Old School

Last December, one of the Year End Awards staff (I believe it was Ryan Campbell.) predicted that Maine would become a hot bed of MMAction in the year 2012.

Cage Titans Glory Review
From Jeff “Scary Nickname” Nader

The building was sold out and the crowd never lacked for enthusiasm. My main man Harry Jones pulled double duty as he romanced the national anthem and bowtied the night away as the ring announcer. The Western Mass MMA crew was on hand to protect me from any pizza that might come my way. (more…)

Warrior Nation Quick Results
From Old School

Friday, November 9th at the Hu-Ke-Lau in Chicopee, MA, Warrior Nation V was held. I was out in NY covering the Art of Combat II and Jeff Nader was covering the Cage Titans event in Boston.
