November 2018 News

November at New Era Combat Sports was as wild as it gets! 1 year in the books! To think back on all of the special events and memories we have been a part of in one way or another is remarkable. Thank you all for being part of this incredible journey. Hopefully it has been as enjoyable for all of you as it has been for us. Having said that, let’s get into what has been going on this past month and in the near future!


NOV 2: November 2nd Ashley Nichols represented New Era Combat Sports at Glory 61 in NYC. Fighting a skilled prodigy from Thailand, Ashley gave her all that she could handle and fell just short of the knockout. Turning to the judges scorecards, they gave Chommanee Sor Taehiran the controversial split-decision nod. For those who watched the fight will know what I mean! Congratulations to the always humble Ashley and we can’t wait to see you back in action, whether it be Muay Thai or MMA!

NOV 17: NextGen Jiu-Jitsu tournament had a record number twenty New Era participants, led by Professor Peter, as well as coaches Matt/Mateo. New Era grabbed plenty of medals! We also had some new belt promotions after big victories. Congrats to those individuals! Special kudos goes out to those who were competing under New Era for the 1st time! New Era BJJ is on fire!!

DEC 23: Both gyms will close on Sunday, December 23rd for the holiday season.

JAN 2: Both gyms will re-open on Wednesday, January 2nd for 2019! See you all then!

FEB 9: Sub X Grappling visits Lansdowne! Talk to Professor Peter for details and tickets for this “Selects Tournament”. Will be a good show!

TKO45: Live at the Bell Centre

Mateo “Carrapato” Vogel will be visiting ‘La Belle Province’ on December 7th to wreak havoc on yet another opponent in the TKO organization. He looks to remain perfect and climb up the stacked Bantamweight division. Mateo will be fighting on the main card for the first time in his young career and we are hoping New Era shows up in bunches to cheer him on. Talk to Kru Jeff for more details!


Brett Ciphery

Our member of the month for November is Brett Ciphery. Brett has been with New Era since the beginning. Brett works hard at his busy job in the tech sector and takes advantage of all of the hours in a day! He often does two-a-days and takes advantage of our awesome private lessons with Kru Jeff when he has free time. Be like Brett and give 100% all day, every day, no matter what you do for a living!

2018 Pan-Am Championships

New Era Combat Sports’ Taylor McClatchie will be representing Canada at the 2018 Pan-Am Championships on December 13th in Beunos Aires, Argentina. Taylor looks to add this coveted title to her already astounding collection. Look for Taylor’s fundraising shirts that will be on sale shortly to help cover some of the expensive costs that this adventure entails. They are awesome! Good luck Taylor!

Winter Cleaning 2018

Our last major clean-out was back in April, so now is the time! On December 14th we will be donating any items left behind at both locations (gloves, bags, wraps, pads, clothes etc). This includes in the change rooms, under the ring/octagon, front desk and ledges. By December 7th unclaimed items will be placed on a table up front and you will have 1 week to take your belongings home. After December 14th, items will be donated to charity. If you have any questions please let us know.



For those who missed our 1-Year Anniversary Sale, there is still time to save big! If you are interested in renewing for 2019 get at us before the end of the year. This would also make as a great gift 🙂

If you weren’t 1 of over 1,000 in attendance on the 24th of November, you missed one heck of a show! Fight Factory & New Era Combat Sports’ very first live show was one to remember. Some exhilarating fights, lots of food & drink, and a wild crowd! We truly thank everyone who came out to support New Era, Fight Factory, and local combat sports! The support in numbers were more overwhelming then we ever expected! Thanks again to all of the volunteers, fighters, local gyms, and those who traveled through an icy/cold night. On to the next one in 2019! See you all there.

 “Sometimes you’re the hammer and sometimes you’re the anvil. Don’t get mad at your training partners or yourself if you are having a bad performance during training. They are just doing their job. Be happy to see the level of your teammates increasing because it will in turn help you evolve. It’s all part of the process.”
