(PRESS RELEASE) – PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Don’t be fooled; CES MMA takes the show on the road to one of the premier hotel, gaming, shopping and entertainment destinations in the Northeast — Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket — on April 1!

In the main event, CES MMA World Welterweight Champion Chris Curtis defends his title against knockout artist and UFC veteran, “The Rock-n-Rolla” Nah-Shon Burrell.

Curtis is predicting another highlight finish similar to his wrecking-machine performance in the demolition of former CES MMA champ Gil de Freitas. Burrell, who has showcased his skills cage for the UFC, Bellator MMA and Strikeforce, is locked and loaded — and gunning for another KO victory.

In the co-main event, two of the Northeast’s most exciting featherweights face off when “The Boston Finisher” Calvin Kattar takes on New York’s Kenny Foster.

Kattar, with 14 wins in 16 outings, is reported to be on the UFC’s radar. Foster, a Bellator MMA veteran, is looking to make some more noise himself as he enters the cage for the 22nd time.

“We are very excited to be showcasing CES MMA from the historic Fox Theater to a national audience live on AXS TV Fights,” stated Jimmy Burchfield Jr., CES MMA CEO. “Foxwoods, AXS TV and CES are a knockout combination.”
