The New Jersey Martial Arts Hall of Fame is extremely proud of it 2013 class of inductees. This class will be honored at the induction dinner gala to be held at the beautiful La Quinta Inn at 350 Lighting Way, Secaucus, New Jersey on December 6, 2013.

On December 6th, Peter Neglia will be inducted into the New Jersey State Martial Arts Hall of Fame.

Peter Neglia has been selected as an inductee to the NJ Martial Arts Hall of Fame for the category of Ring Announcer.

He has announced over 100 Shows in the New Jersey area, most recently, as associated with his brother, Louis Neglia’s Ring of Combat MMA Events and before that Lou’s Hard Knock Productions of World Class Kickboxing.

Peter grew up in Brooklyn, NY, attended Xaverian High School, and received his B.A. Degree from the University of Pittsburgh and J.D. Degree from Fordham University.

By profession, he now works in the field of Real Estate Management for a major company with properties throughout the East Coast, prior to that fulfilling the same responsibilities for Trump Management in the Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island areas of New York.

His association with the Martial Arts began many years ago as one of the early students at his brother Lou’s Martial Arts Karate Academy in Brooklyn.  While he fondly remembers once winning a third place trophy at a contact points tournament, he quickly realized that he needed a more gentlemanly way to continue his participation with the sport.

Prior to the Announcing of his first professional Show, Peter worked the corner for his Brother Lou’s World Championship title fights in Madison Square Garden and vividly recalls the early days when Lou began promoting Events in high school gyms before a few hundred people.

His classic Main Event opening line is “Let the Fight Begin” and he always urges the crowd to cheer on their favorites but to show all of the fighters the respect for the hard work and courage that brings them into the ring. His pause before announcing the winning corner in close fights keeps the crowd on edge as they wait to acknowledge the winner.

Peter has announced Shows at many establishments throughout the East Coast including Madison Square Garden, Mohegan Sun, the Taj Mahal, Caesar’s  and  most recently his brother Lou’s Ring of Combat 46 Event-the longest running Show at the Tropicana in Atlantic City. These Events have been televised by major networks including ESPN, MSG, Telemundo and Sports Channel and are regularly aired on the cable show, Inside MMA.

He is most proud of the opportunity he has had to meet so many professionals in what he considers one of the most popular, competitive and fastest growing sports in the country. It has been thrilling to him to have announced fighters who have worked their way up through the Ring of Combat, the proving ground of champions, and have reached the highest World Championship level in the sport. He is sure many of the current Ring of Combat fighters will likewise have that success.

He is grateful for this honor, congratulates all of tonight’s inductees for their accomplishments in and outside the Ring and wishes the best of success to all the fighters in the game today.

Ever since Royce Gracie amazed the world by winning the first ever Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) tournament in the United States in 1993, practitioners of all styles of combat sports have been developing, what they believe to be, the most effective techniques in competition based fighting. At the time, Royce opened the eyes of the world to the effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. But now in 2013, you see techniques from many martial arts disciplines being effectively used in MMA competition. This is why the North East Combat Sports Expo was created.

The North East Combat Sports Expo is a celebration of ALL combat sports, and a weekend where competitors, fans, celebrities and businesses can meet under one roof to enjoy many different styles of combat competition. Whether it’s the submissions of BJJ, the throws of Judo or the knees of Muay Thai, you will see it all here during the North East Combat Sports Expo.

This truly will be a unique and first of its kind weekend for competitors and fight fans in this area. Besides competing in or watching the various styles of competition, you will have the opportunity to browse many businesses who are industry leaders with their products. Also, fight fans will have the opportunity to take seminars and train with some of the best coaches and fighters in many different styles of combat. If you need help with your takedowns, submissions, kicks, punches or defense, there will be a seminar for you.  Lastly, if you’re a fight fan, you’ll love that there will be picture taking and autograph signings with popular pro fighters. These fighters have fought at the highest of levels in Mixed Martial Arts competition.

Asylum Fight League 43 took place on Saturday, November 9 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  It was yet another outstanding show put on by promoter Carl Mascarenhas, and the fans stayed long after the final bell, discussing the action and buzzing over the quality of the card.  In the main event, for the vacant Asylum Fight League Super Heavyweight title, Brian Palakow weathered the punching power of Tommy Lanier by taking Lanier down and working him over on the ground.  It was an exciting fight, and an excellent finish to a great night of fights.

In all, there were 12 fights on the card, and each one showed why the Asylum is the number one place for MMA in South Jersey.  If you missed this show live, you can check out the replays on GFL.tv.  And check out the Asylum Fight League website for details on upcoming Asylum shows.
