Victory Promotions MMA announces 'Rich Clementi vs. Ronnie Rogers' for Nov. 12 in Lowell, Mass.


On Sat., Nov. 12, Tsongas Center in Lowell, Mass. will host the second ever mixed martial arts (MMA) event for Victory Promotions MMA. The main event will feature a bout between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight fighter Rich Clementi.

"No Love" will be squaring off against regional mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran "Bam Bam" Ronnie Rogers.

Clementi will be looking to rebound from a tough loss versus Shinya Aoki at Dream: "Fight for Japan!" on May 29 in Saitama, Japan. The fight resulted in Clementi being on the receiving end of a vicious neck crank that ended up in highlight reels for subsequent weeks after the fight.

The card will also showcase a welterweight match up between former Bellator Fighting Championships fighter Matt Sung Lee and Tiawan Howard.

In his career, Lee has faced quite a "murderer's row," competing against such names as Ben Saunders, Jorge Masvidal and Eddie Alvarez. Unfortunately for Lee, all of those fights ended in losses.

Victory Promotions is run by former Massachusetts deputy boxing commissioner Vinny Fraumeni, who believes that New England is the perfect location to build an MMA faithful following.

"Mixed martial arts has a strong history and loyal fanbase in New England, and we have set out to provide a premier outlet to showcase some of the world's greatest pro and amateur fighters." 

The main card for "Clementi vs. Rogers" will also spotlight two dueling up and coming prospects in Ricardo Georges and Carlos Neto, as well as a women's mixed martial arts (MMA) bout between Kaline Medeiros and Katy Merrill.

To help promote the event, "Butterbean" Eric Esch will be on hand to sign autographs and meet the fans.

General admission tickets are still available, starting at $35. Tickets can be purchased through the Tsongas Center official website. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. ET, with the fights set to begin around 7:00 p.m. ET.
