CES MMA announced today that the Providence, Rhode Island promotion and UFC Fight Pass have reach a multi-year Live Streaming agreement.
“CES MMA is excited to announce its strategic, multi-year partnership with UFC Fight Pass,” said the promotion’s CEO, Jimmy Burchfield Jr. “Live streaming is the future of our sport and the team at UFC Fight Pass are the most talented in the industry.” He continued to say “Joining forces provides us with innovative marketing tools and a quality streaming platform that is recognized all over the world. We are proud of the reputation that CES MMA fighters are UFC ready and viewers all over the world will soon get to see why.”
CES MMA 54 will take place on Saturday January 19, 2018 at the Twin River Event Center in Lincoln Rhode Island. The entire event will stream live on UFC Fight Pass in a special 3 p.m. matinee with the undercard at 2 p.m.
CES MMA began in 2014 with a multi-year broadcast deal with AXS TV. The promotion was founded by boxing promoter Jimmy Burchfield Sr. The promotion promoted the first sanctioned professional mixed martial event in the state of Rhode Island back in September 17, 2010 at Twin River Casino.

CES MMA kicks off the New Year with two major title fights. Lightweight world title-holder Nate “The Snake” Andrew (14-1, 5 KOs) of East Providence, R.I. as he takes on Bryce Logan (9-3). Reigning bantamweight world champion Tony Gravely (15-5, 5 KOs) of Martinsville, Va. will take on Kris Moutinho.
