Matt Bessette Puts on a Clinic and Defends His Title | CES 41 Highlights & Results

CES MMA brought us a brutal night of fights that featured six finishes in seven fights!

The main event saw Matt “The Mangler” Bessette defend his Featherweight Title against Kevin “The Hard Hitting Hillbilly” Croom. Both men came out strong in the first round, but Bessette was throwing some of the best striking we have ever seen from him. In the second & third rounds, Matt Bessette put a clinic, picking all the openings and mauling Croom. Less than a minute into round 3, Bessette threw a beautiful head kick followed by some strikes to end the fight by TKO and retain his title!

In the co-main event, Pat Walsh & Kevin Haley made history by competing in the first ever sanctioned Crusierweight bout at 225 lbs. Walsh was able to take home the win in this one by sinking a tight choke early in round 2 to make Haley tap.
