AMMO to hold night of ammy fights on Oct. 30 event at Big E

by Brian Woodman Jr. on 10/29/21

AMMO Fight League’s Halloween event on Saturday night will include a grappling match between former Connecticut favorite Brennan Ward and Chris Samboy, who trains at Underdog BJJ in Hartford. Ward is perhaps best known for competing in Bellator’s middleweight tournament about eight years ago, during which he began as an alternate and eventually lost to then-champion Alexander Shlemenko.

A pair of amateur championship fights will headline the event, which will start at 5 PM at the Big E in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Jessen Ramcharan will fight John Lamia for a vacant bantamweight title. Casey Norton of Terryville will fight Michael Queen for a vacant flyweight title.

The rest of the evening will include 12 amateur bouts;


  • Anthony Basile versus Jonathan Riollano at 145 pounds.
  • Parker Smith versus Bobby Popolizio at 145 pounds.
  • Justin Graves versus Nick Roman at 155 pounds.
  • Chih-Kai Li versus Cullen Johnson at 155 pounds.
  • Lee McHugh versus Matthew Santangelo at 185 pounds.
  • Cole Brackett versus Marcello Sacchiero at 155 pounds.
  • Kevin Lee Coggins versus Alex Seneco at 170 pounds.
  • Donavan Lozado versus Max Lombardo (listed at heavyweight).
  • Christan Fagan versus Isaac Carlson at 145 pounds.
  • Aaron Velazquez of Waterbury versus Rodolfo Silva at 170 pounds.
  • Joshua Barnard versus Maren Lanchaster at 185 pounds.
  • Chris Kennedy versus Darren McCall at 170 pounds.
