New England-based promotion CES MMA will return on Friday with
three championship bouts. CES
MMA 37 will go down live on AXS TV starting 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT

In the main event, Andre
Soukhamthath will defend his bantamweight title against
Soukhamthath captured the title in March when he flattened Kody Nordby
with a fifth-round flying knee and at Thursday’s weigh-ins, the
champ looked in prime shape. He tipped the scale at 135.5 pounds
while challenger Moy came in slightly lighter at 134.
The vacant featherweight title is up for grabs in the co-feature
Bessette take on late-replacement Joe
Pingitore. Both combatants came in identically at 145 pounds,
clearing the final hurdle for their showdown.
Finally, the CES MMA heavyweight strap will find a home as Ashley

Rebello. At nearly 20 pounds lighter, Rebello clocked in at 243
pounds for the vacant championship duel.
