CES 4/12/2013 Review

We arrived at 6:30 and found our spots.  A little sleet and rain was no problem for the WesternMassMMA boys!  For vendors I saw Silent Kill Syndicate and Badass Incorporated. CES has 9 professional fights for the evening.  Fights should be starting around 7pm so follow along with the play by play.  Warchild will be taking photos for you all.  For the last minute changes, the Matt Doherty/Johnny Campbell fight is now off the card.  Johnny wasn't feeling well and called in sick at weigh ins.    Another change is Jay Bakanowski was unable to fight so Ralph Johnson stepped in.  Glad to see you back Killa!  The place is starting to fill up now and I am sure as the night goes on it will fill up more.  I had a nice chat with Dinis before the fights.  Thanks for stopping by Dinis.  Kelly MacDonald from Crossface Productions will be taking photos for CES as well.  At the press table we got Grant Tremmeling, Brandon Fleming and Sean from Prime Athletics!  For local celebs that aren't fighting I've seen Mike Campbell, Saul Almeida...

Thank you to CES MMA for having us and allowing us to take photos.  I hope you all enjoy the photos as we all do sharing them.  We will be posting our entire album to our fanpage so make sure you are a fan if you aren't.  Thanks to all the fighters who gave us their very best in the cage.  The night of fights was ah-maze-ing.  This show had it all!  A big KO victory from Doomsday.  Some slick submission victories and Lucas Cruz vs Rob Font lived up to all the hype.  CES is doing everything right and they really do listen to the fans. I see them posting on their fanpage all the time to the fans, "What match ups do you want to see?"  Then they go and make it happen.  One thing I would like to see at CES and I know it will be happening real soon but I am impatient.  I want to see some ladies in the CES MMA cage!
