New England Fights! (NEF) released an updated fight card for Saturday’s Fight Night V in Lewiston, Maine.

The card features a ton of talent from the Pine Tree State including headliners Paul Gorman of the Academy and Adam Toussaint of Team Havoc who will be fighting to become the first ever Maine State bantamweight champion.  Also, fellow Mainer Ryan Sanders of Connor’s MMA will take on Augsuta’s Jarod Lawton in a welterweight scrap.

“Maine is so heavy with mixed-martial arts talent right now, it’s difficult to comprehend just how far the sport has come in the short time it’s been regulated here,” stated NEF co-owner and matchmaker Matt Peterson in a recent press release.

I agree with Peterson, Maine is quickly becoming a hot bed of MMA talent and I can’t wait to see these Pine Tree staters duke it out Saturday night.
