After a year and a half away from action, it was inevitable that all things wouldn't go as planned during the lead up to Cage Titans 48 on Saturday night at Plymouth Memorial Hall. The press conference held on Thursday afternoon had a few hiccups, but after the event started an hour late and Ali Zebian showed up fashionably late, things went according to plan as the featured fighters of the night were able to say their piece, and face off with their respective opponents.
NEMMA was on-sight from all angles, as we got to catch up with with a number of the pro fighters that you'll see competing inside the cage in less than 48 hours.
