Brewester debuted Friday after fighting his amateur finale at “CES MMA 35” in Massachusetts, earning himself a promotional agreement with CES MMA following a win over Carmelo Dominguez.
Welterweight Bobby Flynn (6-3) of Mashpee, Mass., fought tooth and nail with Queens vet Kevin Horowitz (6-6), narrowly winning by split decision, 29-28, 28-29, 30-27.

English stunned Murrin early in the opening round with unanswered strikes, but Murrin regained his composure along the cage and nearly stole the second round with a late takedown. English stayed on his feet in the third and used his superior striking to clinch the win, his first with CES MMA in three tries.
