Eric “Night Time” Nolan (4-0) will be fighting for the fifth as an amateur and a professional career may not be far behind. Nolan will face MPR Endurance MMA’s Obinna Egbebike (3-1) at CFFC 95 in Philadelphia. This is an excellent match-up of two quality men and camps. Nolan is fighting out of Dante Rivera BJJ in Freehold, NJ and has a very nice talent pool of other fighters who helped him get ready for his bout.
Nolan has been wrestling since he was a youth and then he joined the Marine Corps after high school. It was during his military service where he really found his love for mixed martial arts. Nolan tells MyMMANews…
“We used to find some type of training every weekend. We would watch the fights and I fell in love with MMA and had my first fight was while I was still in the Marines which was pretty cool. I found Ash (Ashure Elbanna). Well, Ash found me and then we found Dante’s and the rest is history. We are here now and have a bunch of other great training partners but Ash has been more influential in my career than anyone. I’m excited to finally get back in there after a year due to the Covid stuff and ready for my best performance ever.”
With a solid wrestling base, a Marine’s attitude and work ethic along with a strong team behind him, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Nolan move into the pro ranks very soon. With an impressive win over Egbebike, this very well could be the last time that he fights for free.

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
