New England Fights (NEF) returns to Aura in Portland, Maine on November 9, 2019 with its next mixed-martial-arts event, “NEF 41: Collision Course.” Earlier today, NEF announced the addition of an amateur women’s strawweight title fight to the card. Glory “The Fury” Watson (6-0) will face Cara Greenwell (9-4) for the vacant 115-pound championship.
Undefeated Glory Watson will attempt to do what no other athlete, male or female, has been able to accomplish in NEF history – hold two of the promotion’s titles simultaneously in different weight divisions. She currently holds the NEF Amateur Women’s 125-pound Flyweight Championship, having defeated Caree Hill (4-2) earlier this summer at “NEF 39” in Lewiston, Maine for the vacant belt.
Watson made her successful strawweight division debut earlier this month at “NEF 40” in Orono, Maine. She defeated Linn MacMillan (0-2) that evening by first-round technical knockout.
Watson represents Young’s MMA of Bangor, Maine. The bout on November 9 is expected to be one of the last of her amateur career as Watson and her team prepare for her pro debut in the near future.
“November 9th will be my seventh fight, and I am privileged that I have such a talented opponent coming to battle me for the strawweight title,” declared Watson. “Cara Greenwell is a very worthy challenger that I look forward to colliding with in the cage. As my amateur career is coming to a close, I’m beyond excited to put my record on the line and see who will come out on top. I want to bring another belt to Young’s MMA.”
Cara Greenwell comes to Maine from Oklahoma where she represents Forza Combat Sports and Team TKO. She has competed in MMA for just over three years. Six of Greenwell’s nine wins have come by way of submission. She also has a technical knockout victory to her credit along with two decisions. Most recently, Greenwell competed in Las Vegas, Nevada for the Tuff-N-Uff strawweight title, losing a decision at the World Amateur Championships.
“I am excited to fight on NEF against an undefeated, high-caliber opponent,” said Greenwell. “I have been training hard, waiting for an opportunity like this to arise. Glory seems to be an exciting fighter. I think our styles will make for an awesome scrap. I can assure you this fight will be nothing but action!”
