COMBAT ZONE 64 REVIEW BY PEGGY MORGAN


Last night I shuffled into the Downtown Radisson Hotel in Manchester, New Hampshire an hour before the first fight was scheduled to begin for Combat Zone 64, fully resigned to enduring at least an hour of mind-numbing boredom while I waited for things to get started. Then I saw the mountain of pine boards stacked in a corner of the room, and I remembered that Johnny Burgess, the owner of Burgess MMA, was planning to try to set a new world record for the most one-inch pine boards broken in one hour. I’ve been training with the guys at Burgess a few days a week for months and months now, and I’d definitely heard Nate LaMotte mention the whole board-breaking thing, but I’ve been punched in the head too many times, and I forget things, so walking into the Radisson and seeing Sensei Burgess standing in the middle of a Stonehenge-ian circle of cinder blocks preparing to smash through thousands and thousands of pine boards was a unexpected treat.

Travis Lizotte



Today’s trip to Twin River Casino was bittersweet for the Full Contact couple, we have had an awesome year covering the CES promotion, attending all six events here at Twin River and tonight is the final fight card of 2017. We have seen a ton of fights under this roof this calendar year and are extremely excited for the final eight fights here at CES 47 tonight. As one fight season comes to a close we cannot help but speculate about the excitement ahead in 2018 and beyond for this cast of CES fighters that have become like an extended family to me and my wife. We would love to thank every fighter that made 2017 and incredible experience for us and would like to wish continued success to all the fighters we had the opportunity to cover this year. We are down to just eight more fights before we hang up our laptop for the for the holiday season and as always we will bring them to you live and up to the minute as CES 47 goes down from Twin River tonight starting live at 7pm with a main card live on AXS TV at 9pm. Keep updating this article throughout the night for the best up to the minute coverage of all the goings on here at CES 47.

CES MMA 47 Preview: Rebello vs. Brown

CES MMA 47: Rebello vs. Brown Preview
Travis Lizotte


For one final time this year; CES MMA will take over the events center at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island on Friday November 17th as AXS TV once again plays host at CES 47. Before CES packs up it’s cage for the holiday season, they will once again “deck the halls” of Twin River Casino with what will be one of the most star studded fight cards of the year. CES 47 will be the promotion’s 7th show of the year, six of which have come from their home at Twin River Casino, and each card continues to impress with no lack of star power, and CES 47 will send 2017 fight season out with a bang. Atop the stacked fight card appearing on AXS TV will be CES fan favorite and Heavyweight Contender Greg “Ribz” Rebello as he returns to the CES cage following a tough Knockout loss to Azunna Anyanwu on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, Rebello hopes to make Derrick Brown (7-4) the victim of his 14th career Knockout as he looks to return to his dominating reign over the CES Heavyweight Division. Across the cage, Derrick Brown will also be looking to bounce back off a tough loss of his own after he fell victim of a first round submission to rising star and current UFC fighter Karl Roberson at CFFC 65 in May, which halted a career long three fight win streak. Rebello should enter this fight as the overwhelming fan favorite, as well as the betting favorite, as he returns home to Rhode Island where he aims to stake his claim as the Top Heavyweight Contender for newly crowned Juliano Coutinho’s CES Heavyweight Belt.
Nate “The Snake” Andrews has a claim of his own to stake when he enters the CES cage Friday night against Tyler Combs in the Co-Main event of the evening, Andrews will be looking to add another win to his already 11-1 professional record, and stamp his ticket to the UFC. Nate Andrews has been on the fringe of the UFC conversation for well over a year now, without receiving the call up to the big show, but Andrews continues to make his argument for the call up the only way he knows how; winning fights. Andrews hopes that with a sixth straight stoppage win, MMA’s top promotion will no longer be able to deny him of an appearance in the Octagon, as he takes out his frustrations on Tyler Combs, a veteran of 31 professional fights.
Also on the Main Card is a duo of BST MMA rising stars that need no introduction to the CES MMA fans as the pair of Bantamweights;Richie Santiago, who goes for his 6th straight win as a pro and Kris Moutinho, who looks to bounce back from his only pro loss, en route to his fifth professional win. Both fighters draw tough assignments as Santiago will square off with the 6-2 veteran of Knockout Promotions in Michigan; Shawn Mack, Mack makes his promotional debut with CES after having a bout with Carlos Candelario fall through at CES 44 in May of this year. For Moutinho; he draws upset minded David Garcia who made his promotional debut back in September of 2016, handing Rico DiSciullo the first loss of his professional career before returning to the CES cage in January of this year when he was submitted by Kody Nordby. Garcia presents another tough test for the rising star Moutinho who was submitted by Branden Seyler in the first round at CES 45. Moutinho will look to solidify his spot amongst the best Bantamweights in the region with an impressive bounce back win at CES 47. It is also worth noting that their BST MMA teammate Jose Lugo (4-1 as an Amateur) will be making his professional debut on the Main Card as well, as TEAM BST looks to steal the show for AXS TV Fights.
Rounding out the Main Card and the live televised portion of the fight card; Rhode Island’s “next big thing” John Douma will look to stay unscathed as a pro as he searches for his second win as a professional, when he matches wits with North Carolina’s own unbeaten Featherweight; Mark Trader. Also, a pair of top level prospects throw down at Flyweight when the aforementioned Jose Lugo from BST takes on New York’s Michael Taylor who earned his first professional win by first round finish at CES 46 last month against Jesse Pires. Two fights highlight the under card at CES 47 and we start out in the Light- Heavyweight division as Yorgan De Castro makes his professional and promotional debut when he welcomes James Dysard back to the CES cage. And Whaling City MMA’s Tyler Hamilton will test the professional MMA waters when he takes on MMA veteran Montoyia Swilling rounding out the under card at CES 47 live from Twin River Casino! Tickets can be purchased by visiting CESMMA.com or CageTix.com/CES or by visiting the Twin River Casino box office. Below is a breakdown of each fight on the card:

[Combat Zone Press Release Written by Lynne Snierson]

MANCHESTER, NH (November 17, 2017)- With both the coveted professional and amateur MMA featherweight belts up for the taking in the main events, Combat Zone 64 “Glory” promises to pack plenty of punch as rising stars on the New England fight scene are showcased at the Downtown Radisson Hotel in the Queen City on Saturday night November 18, and Johnny Burgess will attempt a world record.

In the main event of the night, Vovka “KGB” Clay (7-2), who hails from Amherst, NH and represents Nashua’s Team Triumph, steps into the cage with Maine’s undefeated Aaron Lacey (4-0) for the vacant Pro Featherweight title. Clay, who is riding a four-fight win streak, vaulted to No. 3 in the New England rankings and No. 15 in the Northeast in his weight division after handing highly-regarded Frank Sforza his first loss in eight pervious fights when they battled in Bellator 185 October 20.
