PROVIDENCE, RI – After consulting with government officials, the Rhode Island Department of Business Regulations, Twin River Casino Hotel and UFC FIGHT PASS®, CES MMA has decided to postpone its scheduled April 24, 2020 event, CES MMA 61, at the Twin River Event Center.
The decision, according to CES MMA COO Jimmy Burchfield Jr., is based on the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and whether or not it will be safe to resume normal activity within the next five to six weeks.
“Asking our fighters to prepare to compete knowing there is a great chance the event will not take place would be unfair and, most importantly, unhealthy,” Burchfield said. “This adversity will pass, and CES MMA will return in 2020 greater than ever. Until then, we ask all of our fighters and fans to take caution, exercise common sense and stay safe.”
