New England Pro MMA



Many changes highlight this months pro MMA rankings from top to bottom, so lets go through the weight classes. At Flyweight, Darren Mima still sits atop the rankings but Remo Cardarelli is doing everything he can in preparation to take over. Cardarelli has been cleaning up in Massachusetts while Mima stays busy in Jersey.

Bantamweight has been one of the most active weight classes and makes a great argument for the toughest division in New England. Sadly we never got to see the showdown between #1 Perdo Gonzalez and #2 Joey Gomez at ECFC as Gonzalez suffered a major injury that set him back, as he has been on a combat sports tear. Gomez however, did take home the ECFC title and extended his unbeaten streak to 5-0 as a professional. Locals Rico Discullo and Kin Moy both looked great as Bellator came to Connecticut and they earned themselves a pair of spots in the rankings.

At Featherweight, all the talk was about Ray Wood’s return to the cage after a long recovery from knee surgery. Starting right where he left off, Wood dominated another top prospect en route to a finish in his return fight against a very tough Gabriel Baino at NEF. Wood has all but taken over the featherweight division as he sits just behind #1 ranked Saul Almeida. Charles Rosa debuts at #3 in the featherweight rankings with his most recent win at CES, where he has now made the permanent move down from lightweight in an anticipated move to make it into the UFC’s roster. Former top ranked featherweight Calvin Kattar has fallen off the rankings due to an extended hiatus of over a year. We hope to see Kattar back in action soon!

Ryan Quinn is New England’s new top ranked lightweight as he continues to impress. Quinn last fought a catchweight (165lbs) against dangerous striker Ryan Sanders following a monster win over Marcus Davis and a UD Dec loss to Gil De Frietas. Quinn won that bout and has won 3 in a row now. Quinn’s most impressive stat remains that he is still undefeated in the Bellator cage. Featured at #2 at lightweight is former TUF veteran and CES lightweight champion Julian Lane after he defeated former #1 ranked Luis Felix.

Welterweight has been very quiet the past few months but will begin to rock the boat at CES when UFC veterans Chuck O’Neil and Ricardo Funch meet for the vacant CES MMA Welterweight championship. Undefeated prospect, Joe Cloutier (4-0) inched his way into the top ten with a stunning victory over Mike Hurlburt in the main event of ECFC recently.

The middleweight top spot has once again changed hands as Harley Beekman took the top spot from former #1 Chip Morazza-Pollard.

Finally, Josh Diekmann moves up one spot at heavyweight with a great performance in Bellator where he won yet again by KO. Diekmann has now won 4 fights in a row in under 90 seconds!
