Wilfredo Santiago Punches his Ticket to Possibly the Best KO of the Year | CES 39 Results & Highlights

blogpost_ces39

Another entertaining night of fights from CES MMA with crazy decisions and even crazier finishes!

The quickest fight of CES 39 happened to be the main event between Chuck “Cold Steel” O’Neil and Wilfredo “The Brown Bomber” Santiago. It only took Santiago 41 seconds to land a HUGE right hand that knocked O’Neil out cold. With that right hand, Santiago grabbed the possible title of best KO of the year.

The co-main event resulted in a controversial call from the judges. Manny Bermudez and Saul “The Spider” Almeida fought hard for all 3 rounds, but everyone’s question was “how is he surviving these chokes?” Almeida escaped and survived many choke attempts from Bermudez, which should have given him the edge to win, but the judges didn’t see it that way. The judges called the fight in the way of Bermudez with a split decision win.

The fight of the night goes to Jeremy Davis vs. Peter Barrett. Barrett put a beating on Jeremy Davis during round one, and after breaking him down, landed a beautiful liver kick early into round 2. We were all hurting after watching that kick take down Davis.

Here are the highlights:

  • Wilfredo Santiago Jr def. Chuck O’Neil via KO (Punch) 0:41 Round 1
  • Manny Bermudez def. Saul Almeida via Split Decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28)
  • Peter Barrett def. Jeremy Davis via TKO (Liver Kick) 1:55 Round 2
  • Kevin Haley def. Mike Rodriguez via Submission (Toe Hold) 1:08 Round 1
  • Micah Terrill def. Bobby Flynn via TKO (Punches) 1:10 Round 1
  • Dan Dubuque def. Max Barrett via Split Decision (28-29, 30-27, 29-28)
  • Josh Ricci def. Remo Cardarelli via Split Decision (29-28, 28-29, 30-27)
