NFC 88 (Nov 11 @ Center Stage) – Fight Card Announced

Here’s the latest fight card for NFC 88.  (Subject to change)

Almost half of the card is Muay Thai and there are no belts up for grabs amongst the pro MMA fights.  The main event which will be a muay thai bout is not a title fight either.  There are some good up-and-comers on this card, but not a ton to get excited about unless your gym is participating on the card.  It looks like NFC 88 will unfortunately have the same look and feel of NFC 87.  See my thoughts on that event here.  There are plenty of tickets available.

The main event showcases Robert Neal vs. Dexter Carthon.  Both fighters have won their  last bouts (on NFC shows).  Neal has not fought since February whereas Carthon last stepped into the cage in June.
