CES MMA 35 4/16/2016 LIVE REVIEW

After a few drives around the rotaries we found the North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly Mass.  This is not only CES's first mma event at this location but it is actually NSMT's first time hosting an mma event.  Boy are they ready for a treat!  The location is really nice with many places selling beverages and food such as popcorn, burgers, dogs.  There is stadium seating all around and the cage is right in the center.  No way you will have a bad view in the house but just in case there are 3 big screens to ensure you don't miss the action.  CES got a cool ramp for the fight with fog and blue lights for the blue corner and red lights for the red corner.  At the start of the show I heard they had 20 tickets left and I highly doubt they will last long.  Tonight CES has 11 fights total with 7 of them being pro.  For the amateurs they will be fighting for the chance to get a contract with CES in their future.  The refs are Gary Foreman and Chris.  Hope we don't see any eye pokes!  The show is sold out and filled to its capacity at 1500. Follow along with me as I recap the night.
