Nick Newell returns, Bruce Boyington looks to defend title at CES 56.
The Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford was rocking for yet another star studded CES card. Dana White Tuesday Night Contender Series alum, Nick Newell, returns to action after only his second professional loss.
Nick Newell has famously had a very successful MMA career despite only having one hand. He won the first 11 fights of his career with 10 first round stoppages, earning a WSOF title shot against Justin Gaethje. After falling in that fight, Newell has gone 3-1 and is looking to rebound from a loss on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series.
John Gotti III returns with his mob of fans to put on yet another impressive showing and continue his undefeated record. Gotti, who is the grandson of famous crime boss John Gotti, is looking to develop his career slowly despite bigger promotions trying to capitalize on his name. He trains out of Long Island, New York, and is 3-0 with all of his wins coming by first round knockout.
Featherweight champion Bruce Boyington is ready for a title defense against hometown fan-favorite Dan Dabuque who is on an impressive four fight win streak.
