Pro bouts highlight Rockingham Park MMA card in Salem
The battle between the two highly regarded featherweights is the marquee event for the next mixed martial arts card at Rockingham Park, Friday night’s Combat Zone 44.
Baino (5-5-0) won one of his fights by unanimous decision; none of the others lasted through the second round.
The main and co-main events will follow seven amateur matches. One of the more intriguing is between Dominic Cofone, whose record is unblemished in three fights, against Kirk Florian (0-1-0), the younger brother of former UFC star and current UFC sportscaster Kenny Florian.
“This will be my first fight in New Hampshire, and I don’t know all that much about my opponent. He’s undefeated, so he’s definitely someone to be taken seriously. But I’ve been training well, and I’m ready.”
