HYANNIS – New England Fights (NEF) will bring mixed martial arts to Hyannis on Saturday.

The main event will feature Brendan “Lock Down” Battles against Mike “The Mustache” Hansen at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center.

“I just think it’s a very popular sport and I think that Cape Cod has been an untapped market for combat sports for a number of years,” said Peter Czymbor with Boston Boxing and NEF.

Battles is an Eastham native and was a three-time All American wrestler for Nauset Regional High School.

While in high school, Battles captured two state championships and three New England championships before graduating in 2012.

He later played defensive end and tackle for the University of Connecticut.

“For a guy like Brendan Battles to take a fight against the guy with a winning record and a seven fight veteran in his very first professional mixed martial arts bout, says to me that he’s very confident in his skills and willing to take on all comers,” said Czymbor.

Hansen is the founding member of Berserkers MMA out of Rumford, Maine and is a former combat engineer in the U.S. Army.

NEF 23: Cage the Cape will take place at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $40 for general admission and $60 for cage side seats.
