Well there it was ladies and gents; New England MMA is officially back as of Wednesday night and damn did CES 61 deliver in a big way. With a little help from UFC FightPass and the tent outside the Crown Plaza Hotel in Warwick, Rhode Island Jimmy Burchfield's Classic Entertainment and Sports (CES MMA) held the regions first local Mixed Martial Arts event in over seven months Wednesday night as they brought regional MMA back to New England in style with what promised, and ultimately delivered, to be one of the more exciting fight cards in the promotion's recent history. With some of the regions most talented prospects highlighting a star studded evening of fights, CES 61 delivered the shot to the veins that the New England MMA faithful have longed for during the seven month absence of regional MMA events here in New England. While everyone takes a minute to digest what went on in the cage at CES 61, lets take a minute to look at some of the headlines of what was a very entertaining night of fisticuffs, under the tent at the Crowne Plaza, Warwick.
Three of the regions most promising, undefeated prospects, keep their streaks alive with dominant performances.
