CES MMA 50 takes place at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I., and the main card airs on AXS TV. Follow Along on Twitter Using #CES50.
The main event of the evening features an East Coast vs West Coast matchup as #5 ranked Bantamweight Dinis Paiva (11-6) takes on LFA-vet Andre Ewell (12-4) for the vacant CES Bantamweight Title. Paiva will be making his record 17th appearance with CES MMA after winning his last four fights in a row. Ewell is a former track star and comes from a boxing background. We saw him wreck Trent Meaux in the first round at LFA 36. With this being both fighter’s first shot at a title, don’t blink in this one.
The co-main event features the return of Philly’s Jeremiah Wells (4-1-1) who is set to take on UFC-vet and former TUF cast member Jon Manley (11-4). Wells shocked the state of Rhode Island with his KO win over CES-favorite Gary Balletto Jr. in April. Manley is a Jiu Jitsu specialist who has only been finished once in his pro career. Wells’ power is scary, but Manley definitely has the edge in experience, so expect things to get interesting!
