“The Skinny”: 28 year old Chris Disonell has earned his stripes in his 9 professional fights, taking on some of the toughest opponents the Northeast’s Bantamweight division has to offer including wins over Turpal Khamzayev, and Mike Kimbel at CFFC and Bellator respectively. Disonell is also no stranger to the bright lights as he makes his CES debut against fellow Bellator veteran and CES Bantamweight Will Smith Friday night at CES 63. Disonell brings a well rounded game to the CES cage as he looks to hand the talented Will Smith his third straight loss.
