CES Favorites Andrews, Bessette, and Lane Grab Finishes at CES 36 | Results & Highlights

Another trip to Rhode Island, and another night of finishes from CES MMA!

CES MMA was back in action Friday with SEVEN main card fights. The CES 36 card went under a lot of changes before Friday’s action. The card was originally supposed to feature a lightweight title bout between Luis Felix and Ryan Sanders. The champ Felix pulled out earlier in the week after a neck injury making Matt Bessette versus Jairo Soares the new main event. The main event changed once again a day before the event, as Jairo Soares was not issued a license bumping Nate Andrews versus Manny Muro to main event status.

Nate “The Snake” Andrews made the most of his main event status submitting Muro in round 3 to earn his ninth career finish. Ran Weathers answered the call taking a fight against CES favorite Matt Bessette on less than 24 hours notice. Unfortunately Bessette was too much for the veteran, finishing him at the very end of the opening round. CES 36 also featured finishes from Josh Laberge, Julian Lane, and Carlos Candelario.

Here are the highlights:

  • Nate Andrews def. Manny Muro via Submission (Rear-Naked Choke) 1:59 Round 3
  • Matt Bessette def. Ran Weathers via submission (guillotine choke) 4:50 Round 1
  • Levan Makashvili def. Ryan Sanders via unanimous decision (30-27, 30,27, 30-27)
  • Josh Laberge def. Jonathan Lemke via TKO (punches) 1:11 Round 2
  • Julian Lane def. Lewis Corapi via submission (guillotine choke) 3:52 Round 3
  • Merab Dvalishvilli def. Matt Tullos via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-26)
  • Carlos Candelario def. Roosevelt Archie via Submission (Guillotine Choke) 1:16 Round 1
