Matt Bessette Returns to Defends His Title at CES 44 | May 12th on AXS TV

The Beasts From the East Go To War This Friday on AXS TV! 

We will see plenty of familiar faces inside the CES MMA cage this Friday as we head back to Twin River Casino for more MMA action!

Matt “The Mangler” Bessette (21-7) returns to the CES MMA cage in the main event to take on Rey “The Warrior” Trujillo (22-18) who is taking this fight on short notice to fill the spot of Jeremy Spoon. Trujillo used to fight with Legacy Fighting Championship where he was formerly the Lightweight & Featherweight champion. This will be Bessette’s second Featherweight title defense since he won the title back at CES 37. Don’t blink during this one as both men have heavy hands and plan to use their artillery of weapons!

In the co-main event of the evening, CES MMA favorite, Greg “Ribz” Rebello (9-5) is set to take on Kevin “King Kevi” Ray Sears (6-3). Both men bring strong striking backgrounds into the cage with a combined record of 16 KO/TKO finishes between the two of them. Sears is making his CES MMA debut on Friday along with his national TV debut. This should be one Heavyweight bout that will not disappoint!
