PORTLAND - New England Fights returns to Bangor this September and there is a bout that will be of pretty big significance to this area.

Jon Lemke and Aaron Lacey will go one-on-one in in the octagon at NEF 35 Wicked Season in September. This will be contested at 155 pounds.

 

The two hail from Brewer and are no strangers to the NEF cage. This is the first time Lacey will fight in the lightweight division as all nine of his career fights were at 145. He's looking to bounce back from a loss at NEF 34.
