Full card announced for CES MMA XXXII (January 8 on AXS TV)

[CES Press Release]

N. PROVIDENCE, R.I. —  Before CES MMA World Champions Luis Felix and Gil de Freitas defend their titles, some of the East Coast’s most talented fighters will  throw down on January 8, when CES MMA XXXII returns to Twin River Casino, live on AXS TV.

Joey “KO King” Gomez, the red-hot Hollis, N.H. bantamweight on a streak of six first-round KOs, squares off against rejuvenated Kody Nordby, a Cumberland, R.I. native with two impressive first-round stoppage wins in the CES MMA cage.

Kyle Bochniak, Boston's hottest featherweight prospect, looks to improve to 6-0 against 22-fight veteran Bill Jones of Somerworth, N.H.

Rico DiScuillo, fighting out of the famed Team Sityodtong, puts his undefeated 5-0 record on the line against fellow Bellator MMA veteran “Relentless” Robbie Leroux of Fall River, MA.  

Heavy-handed heavyweight Josh “The Freight Train” Diekmann rounds out the AXS TV Fights portion of the card as he looks to score his 12th career knockout against a to-be-announced fighter.

On the undercard, Boston featherweight James Grant Murrin, who's scored stoppages in three of his trips to the CES MMA cage, returns to action against tough Philly veteran Steve McCabe, who's made 25 trips to the cage.

Manny Bermudez, who's undefeated with three first-round stoppages, is on a mission to keep his unblemished record intact when he faces Evan Parker, who's looking to keep his CES MMA win streak going.

Bragging rights are on the line when two of the East Coast’s top middleweight prospects face off. Pat McCrohan, hot off a first-round stoppage in October, clashes with Mike “Bones” Rodriguez, who has two first-round stoppage in his pro outings.

David Baxter battles flyweight “Ruthless” Josh Ricci and Nick Iaciofano, fighting out of USMMA, clashes with Luay Ashkar in the 125-pound action.
