On February 26, 2011, Reality Fighting, New England’s longest running MMA promotion, brings an action packed MMA show to Mohegan Sun Casino’s Arena. The card will feature three title fights and a solid undercard. Up for grabs will be the Reality Fighting Welterweight, Middleweight, and Heavyweight titles.
Reality Fighting Welterweight Champion, Tim Pinney, will be defending his title against Brett Oteri of Connor’s MMA. Brett earned the shot with a win in December over Chip Moraza-Pollard. Tim is looking forward to getting back in the cage and defending his title after a lengthy layoff due to injury.
Jeff Nader will be defending his Middleweight title against Team Link’s, Alexandre “Vaca” Moreno. Vaca is a BJJ black belt with a 10-2 record. Nader trains under Pat Schultz and Mike Gresh at Cape Cod Fighting Alliance, and is a rising star in the New England MMA scene. “Scary nickname” and “Vaca” will be a war.
The vacant Heavyweight title will be up for grabs when #1 ranked Heavyweight, Parker Porter (Underdog BJJ) takes on Mike Dexter (Dexter Vale Tudo). Parker has been on a tear of late, adding solid wins to his resume. Dexter, a former Mass Destruction champion, is coming off a solid win over highly-touted Shawn Galano. Both fighters will have a lot of support in the stands and look to follow in the steps of former champion, and now UFC fighter, Christian Morecraft.
Also at the event will be Matt Serra, Gabriel Gonzaga and Josh Grispi, who will be signing autographs before the fights start. Hit the jump for the full fight card!
