[CES Press Release]

There's no holiday break for ‪CES MMA‬ Matchmaker Pat Sullivan as he finalizes the card for CES MMA XXXII (#CES32), January 8 at Twin River Casino, broadcast LIVE on AXS TV FIGHTS at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

The AXS TV FIGHTS Main Card starts with heavyweight action when Josh "Train" Diekmann, the bangin’ ‪Bellator MMA‬ veteran with 11 big KOs, collides with Ashley Gooch, a heavy-fisted Resurrection Fighting Alliance veteran who's on a six-fight win streak Kody Nordby, the red-hot Cumberland bantamweight, takes on New Yorker stud Zech Lange in what will be nonstop action as both fighters are coming off back-to-back wins. Nordby was previously slated to fight unbeaten knockout artist Joey Gomez, who withdrew from the fight due to injury.
Rico DiSciullo, from the famed Team Sityodtong, is looking to notch his sixth straight win when he battles "The Florida Gladiator," Chino Duran, who's making his CES MMA debut. Duran was scheduled to battle Dinis Paiva in October, but the fight was cancelled due to injury.
Gary Balletto Jr, the Cranston fan-favorite, returns to the CES MMA cage in a clash against New York’s Ryan Todd.

When asked, Sullivan couldn’t wait to discuss the additions to the January 8 card.
"CES MMA is loaded and ready for 2016. These fights all have FOTN potential. We work with athletes who want to fight, who are ready for the call at any moment. The holidays didn’t matter, there was no hesitation; they all wanted in. These fighters are ready to put on a show next month."
