[CES Press Release]

Two up-and-comers are hungry to steal the show on the biggest card in ‪#‎CESMMA‬ history, when Devin Carrier and Connor Barry clash at #CES37, under the bright lights at Twin River Casino on August 12.

An apprentice of MMA icon Joe Lauzon, Carrier has two words for his return to the CES MMA cage this summer: “Don’t blink!”

“It’s two guys who like to stand in the center and just throw bombs,” he added. “I have a technical edge on him. I’m going to be a lot smarter, and that’s how I’m going to get the win.”
Carrier is coming off a first-round TKO win at ‪#‎CES35‬, and he plans on stealing the show again at CES MMA 37.
His opponent agrees this bout has Fight-of-the-Night potential. But Barry, who’s coming off a victory in his pro debut, sees the action playing out a little differently.

“Devin is a warrior. I’m a warrior. We’re both 21-year-old kids. And we’re both ready to throw down,” said Barry with a chuckle. “If this fight goes three rounds, it’ll be an absolute war. But I can end it standing up or on the ground, and I can’t wait to put another stoppage on my record and move up that CES MMA ladder.”

CES MMA 37 also features three CES MMA Championship bouts: ‪#‎Woonsocket‬’s Andre “The Asian Sensation” Soukhamthath collides with ‪#‎Boston‬’s Kin “Kong” Moy for the Bantamweight Championship, ‪#‎Hartford‬’s Matt “The Mangler” Bessette squares up with ‪#‎Gloucester‬’s Pedro “The Beast” Gonzalez for the Featherweight Championship, and ‪#‎Providence‬'s Greg “Ribz” Rebello throws down with ‪#‎Arizona‬'s Ashley “Gio” Gooch, for the Heavyweight Championship.
