Chris Curtis Retains the CES MMA Welterweight Title | CES 42 Highlights & Results

Plus Luis “Rockstar” Felix Made His Triumphant Return to the Cage!

In the battle of Welterweights, only one could walk away a champion last night at CES MMA 42. Chris “Action Man” Curtis put his title on the line against Wilfredo “The Brown Bomber” Santiago Jr. and for about 30 seconds in the second round it looked like we were about to have a new champion. The tides quickly turned and after Curtis got tagged by a couple strikes, he came back to take down Santiago and score a TKO victory at 1:08 into round 2.

The “Rockstar” is back and he made a statement inside the CES 42 cage, letting everyone know that he had no ring-rust after his 14 months off! Luis “Rockstar” Felix came out firing quickly against Dawond Pickney, using smooth transitions to take control of the fight. Pickney was able to escape a couple chokes early in the first, but finally fell victim to a tight rear-naked choke from Felix late in the first round.

The fastest finish of the night went to Kody Nordby who quickly picked apart David Baxter and submitted him at 4:24 into the first round by rear-naked choke. Will the Flyweight division be the new home of Kody Nordby?

Here are the highlights:

  • Chris Curtis def. Wilfredo Santiago via TKO (Strikes) 1:08 Round 2
