DWTNCS Season 2 Contestent Justin “The Fort” Sumter Ready To Put On

With Dana Whites Tuesday Night Contender Series having so much success in the first season, birthing future stars like Shane O'Malley, Zu Anyanwu, Kurt Holobaugh, Benito Lopez to name a few, its no wonder why fight fans around the world are thirsty for a second season with fresh new faces. Amongst the recent names that broke to be on season 2, local Connecticut fighter Justin Sumter stood out to most locals due to his exciting 1st round finishing style as he trains under Nick Newell. In case anyone whos reading this isn't aware, Nick Newell was also given a shot on this season during week 6. 

Currently on a 6 fight win streak, Sumter was preparing for CES 50 vs former UFC veteran Ron Stallings but with the UFC knocking at the door it was unclear if Justin would be aiming to fight both events. July 31st marks week 7 of season 2 where Sumter (6-1) will take on Colorado's and LFA's own, Ian Heinisch (10-1) who carries more of a KO fight style compared to Sumter submission specialty. 

 EVil Eddie of Pure EVil MMA had the pleasure to talk with Justin Sumter to get a feel for what the vibe at the "Fighting Arts Academy" in West Haven Connecticut, was like with the excitement of two fighters in the same gym getting the opportunity of a lifetime.

Connecticut Has New Hope In Marisa “Spider Monkey” Messer-Belenchia

Connecticut has a handful of well known fighters training out of the state like Nick Newell, Glover Texiera, to name a few, but when it comes to females there hasn't been any single female that's really stood out over the past decade. Well Connecticut is finally getting a rising star to get behind and cheer on with New Havens Marissa "Spider Monkey" Messer-Belenchia whos first professional MMA is right around the corner and is coming fresh off her most recent win at Mohegan Sun for Reality Fighting 101 where she was crowned Amateur Atom-weight Champion for the promotion.
Training out of North Haven CT under Bellators Andrew Calandrelli who was one of the staples in helping Nick Newell get his foot in MMA and even brought him into his gym straight out of high school after seeing the potential. Andrew told EVil Eddie of My MMA News that the second Marisa walked in the door it was a similar feeling he had in just first few hours of watching Marisa and immediately knew with the right effort and training she would be the star CT has been waiting for. Andrew goes on to tell us that Marisa had no idea what MMA was when she arrived, everything was fresh and new for her.
Before her last fight at Mohegan Sun Marisa's boyfriend passed away unexcitingly, but to everyone's surprise she still was insistent that she wanted to push forward and train for her fight at Reality Fighting 101.  When faced with such extreme life altering situations people usually crash and burn or rise from the ashes and that's what separates people from champions. It didn't get any better for her come fight week either. The day before the fight was supposed to take place Marissa fell ill after weigh ins and began vomiting. No one was sure if she was going to be able to compete due to the rough circumstances she faced. Come fight day at Mohegan Sun Casino (Indian reservation) to everyone's surprise, no questions were asked and Marisa was able to fight as long as she showed up and she did just that. Marisa took the fight in a decision victory and now looking forward to her future in this scene.
The Spider Monkey and Bellator veteran, coach Andrew Calandrelli sat down with EVil Eddie of Pure EVil MMA Podcast to give fight fans an inside look to what is coming by the years end.

Jimmie Rivera “High Paced, Bombs Will Be Thrown” At UFC Utica

Top ranked UFC Bantamweight Jimmie Rivera joins EVil Eddie to discuss his upcoming fight vs Marlon Moraes June 1st at UFC Utica. Rivera is currently on a 20 fight win streak with wins over legends and top talent like Faber and has continuously given fans an epic edge of your seat and in your face kind of fight like the recent fight of the year contender from 2017 vs Thomas Almeida that ended in dominant fashion. Rivera has been insistent that he is deserving of the Bantamweight title and with him holding the CFFC, Ring Of Combat, C.F.F.C, King Of The Cage titles and an inductee tot he New Jersey MMA Hall Of Fame, i don't think many would argue against him being within arms reach of gold. Jimmie updates us on gym mate and another Fight Of The Year contender, Shane Burgos and TUF 27 contestant, Mike "The Lone Wolf" Trizano.
