Dominique Steele Grinds Out the Upset Over Chuck O’Neil to Win the Title | CES XXIX Results and Highlights

Plenty of Finishes and A New Champion at CES XXIX

CES MMA is still relatively new to AXS TV, but already the promotion has made quite a mark in just four events on the network.

Rhode Island was the site yet again for an entertaining night of MMA. CES XXIX featured 5 finishes in 7 fights and the crowning of a new welterweight champ. The main event featured the return of champion Chuck O’Neil as he tried to once again defend his welterweight title against Dominique Steele. The least time we saw O’Neil he knocked out his opponent in 11 seconds. That would not be the case with Steele though, as the challenger held the champ against the cage or on the canvas and ground out a decision win to steal away the title.

The co-main event saw childhood leukemia survivor Matt Bessette knock out Khama Worthy with brutal hook. Other finishes of the night included, Eric Spicely who kept his perfect record intact with a first round submission victory over Harley Beekman, and Dinis Paiva who notched his fourth, first round stoppage in a row.

Here are the highlights:

  • Dominique Steele def. Chuck O’Neil via Unanimous Decision (48-47 48-47 49-46)
  • Matt Bessette def. Khama Worthy via KO (Punch) 2:42 Rnd 2
  • Eric Spicely def. Harley Beekman via Submission (Armbar) 4:30 Rnd 1
  • Dinis Paiva def. Bruno Marques via Submission (Rear-Naked Choke) 4:07 Rnd 1
  • Greg Rebello def. Tyler King via TKO 3:10 Rnd 3
  • Nate Andrews def. Jay Bakanowski via TKO 2:50 Rnd 1
  • Joe Pingitore def. James Murrin via Unanimous Decision (30-27 30-27 30-27)
