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:
