PORTLAND - The NEF professional lightweight title has been a launch pad to bigger and better things for several local fighters.

This list includes current UFC fighters Devin Powell and Desmond Green as well as CES champion Bruce Boyington. Young's MMA fighter Ryan Sanders is hoping he can take a dive into that pool.


Sanders is set to defend his lightweight belt against Jacob Bohn, a fighter out of New York. Bohn comes in with a 7-5 record and is coming off two big wins in lightweight bouts this year.


NEF 36 is set for Nov. 17 at Aura in Portland.
