Two Title Fights Headline CES MMA 51 | August 3rd on AXS TV
August 2, 2018
We’re Headed Back to the East Coast For a Night of Brutality!
In the main event of the evening, Nate Andrews (13-1) defends his Lightweight title against D’Juan Owens (16-12-1). Andrews won his first pro title back in April with a second round rear naked choke victory over Chris Padilla. Andrews still boasts a 100% finishing rate and will be making his 14th appearance with CES. Owens is a former U.S. Marine returning to AXS TV for the first time since 2015. This will be Owens’ 3rd consecutive title fight. With 14 submission wins between these two, keep your eyes glued to the screen!
Another title is on the line in the co-main event as Sean Soriano (11-5) battles Bruce Boyington (15-11). Soriano is on his first win streak since his pre-UFC days and this will be his first title fight since he won the CFA title on AXS TV in 2013. Boyington is a 3rd Degree Taekwondo Black Belt who lost to Nate Andrews at CES 45 last year. Both men have faced some tough competition in their careers are known for their striking, so this could be a short and fun fight!
