NYFE 2: "Ides of March" Preview, Part 1


The New York Fight Exchange's second show is on Saturday, and if their sophomore effort is anything like the first one, the Amazura Concert Hall in Jamaica, Queens is going to be packed with fans cheering on some very entertaining fights.

Now, given that the NYFE event is the next big MMA show on tap for New York City, it deserves some preview coverage. However, the nature of the amateur beast is such that giving a detailed breakdown of the card and its fighters could be an exercise in futility - amateur fighters aren't pros, so they could fail to make weight, fail a pre-fight physical, or even just not show up, thereby rendering a carefully-crafted preview moot.

Instead, I'm going to post some vids of the fighters who will likely (hopefully!) be in the cage come fight night. Watch them in action here, and get psyched to see them on Saturday.

Fady Medani, the Syrian slugger:

Rashad Clarke, the underground badass:

Richie Pabon, the smooth operator:

Eric D'Arce, the arm breaker:
