Main event title fight announced for CES 49

Lincoln, R.I. (Wed, February 28, 2018)– CES 49 will take place on Friday April 6, 2018 at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I. The main card will air LIVE on AXS TV Fights.

As previously announced in the co-main event, Chris “The Action Man” Curtis will defend his CES MMA Welterweight Championship belt against title challenger Jason “G.I.” Norwood.

The promotion announced today that Nate “The Snake” Andrews clashes with Chris “Taco” Padilla for the vacant CES MMA Lightweight Championship in the main event of CES 49.

This is Andrews’ 13th time entering the CES MMA cage. The well-rounded East Providence, R.I., product kicked off his career with six straight wins and is currently riding high with five straight stoppages at Twin River Casino.

Now, after more than six years of professional fighting experience, “The Snake” tries to snatch a championship belt.

“That belt would mean the world to me,” Andrews says. “Right now it’s the next big step in my career, and I’m excited to take it.”

The CES MMA Lightweight Championship was previously held by Andrews’ teammate, Luis “Rockstar” Felix, so the top Rhode Island lightweight wasn’t previously vying for the belt. But now that he has an opportunity to take a piece of gold home, he’s only got one thing on his mind — victory.

“My opponent is a tough, young, athletic guy with a good record. He’s a very challenging opponent,” Andrews says. “That being said, I definitely expect another finish — either a knockout or a submission.”

Chris Padilla, meanwhile, is a Bellator MMA vet who started his career with seven straight victories. After back-to-back wins in 2017, the man fighters call “Taco” is thrilled for the opportunity to fight for the CES lightweight title.

“I believe I’m a champion-caliber fighter, and I’m going to prove it on Fight Night,” Padilla says on the eve of his return to AXS TV Fights. “I guarantee an exciting fight, and I’m going to have my hand raised.”
