MILFORD, NH – Maine’s mixed martial arts community will have the shot to compete under the NEF banner once again this summer.
New England Fights announced on Monday that it will hold its first event since the onset of the pandemic Aug. 21
NEF 44: Back in Black will take place later this summer at the Hampshire Dome in Milford, NH, and will feature MMA bouts and kickboxing fights.
The promotion’s last scheduled event, NEF 43, was postponed indefinitely; scheduled to take place at the Collins Center for the Arts in Orono. NEF executives said in the announcement that the Combat Sports Authority of Maine has not cleared mixed martial arts cards to take place in the state yet, but they hope to hold their card at UMaine in the fall.
