And Still… Two Titles Successfully Defended at CES XXVII | Results and Highlights

Chuck O’Neil and Dinis Paiva Deliver QUICK Knockouts at CES XXVII

CES MMA delivered their own winter storm Friday with CES XXVII in Rhode Island. The second ever event on AXS TV featured two lightning fast knockouts and a pair of title defenses. In the night’s main event, champion Chuck O’Neil (who in Dusty Rhodes fashion) promised “hard times,” defended his welterweight title with an 11 second knock out of Army vet Manny Walo. The co-main event at CES XXVII featured TUF veteran Julian Lane. Lane won the CES lightweight title back in August and after five (sometimes uneventful) rounds, he retained his title via split decision over Lucas Cruz. In an earlier fight on the card, Dinis “sweetbread” Paiva  delivered one of the best highlights of the night with a quick knockout of Matt Doherty (ruled 10 seconds but seemed quicker).

Here are the highlights:

  • 170 lb Title: Chuck O’Neil def. Manny Walo via KO (Punch) 0:11 Rnd 1
  • 155 lb Title: Julian Lane def. Lucas Cruz via Decision (Split) (48-47 48-47 47-48)
  • Jon Manley def. Brett Oteri via Submission (Keylock) 3:13 Rnd 2
  • Luis Felix def. D’Juan Owens via Decision (Unanimous) (30-27 30-27 30-27)
  • Dinis Paiva def. Matt Doherty via KO (Punch) 0:10 Rnd 1
  • Kyle Bochniak def. Thomas English via Decision (Unanimous) (30-27 30-26 29-27)
