On June 10, ‪#‎CESMMA‬ World Lightweight Champion Luis “Rockstar” Felix and Ryan Sanders will meet again under the bright lights at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I., live on AXS TV Fights!
The two high-paced combatants fought in January in a catchweight, non-title match at ‪#‎CES32‬, which ended when Felix was unable to continue due to a cringe-inducing leg injury.
That night both fighters agreed to a rematch and June 10 it’s on!

“That was one of the worst nights of my career. I thought I broke my leg and I froze up,” said Felix, who’s making his 12th trip to the CES MMA cage. “But I’m still the champ, I’m ready to defend my title, and I’m excited to move forward in my career -- this is the biggest fight of my life, and I’m ready for it.”

Added Sanders, who's hunting for his 10th stoppage win, “It was an entertaining fight and I feel like I was winning it, for sure, but the way it ended sucks. But (expletive) happens. The past is the past. Now I get an opportunity to prove to everybody that it wasn’t a fluke and I’m going to win again.”
Neither fighter plans on leaving Twin River Casino without the CES MMA World Lightweight Championship belt in tow.

“I don’t know how the fight will go,” offered Felix, “but I will have my hand raised at the end, and I’m going to have made a statement in the process.”
Countered Sanders, “I’m going to push the pace, get in his face and finish him. I will be prepared for wherever this fight goes, I’m winning it.”
Stay tuned for more bout announcements!!!
