LINCOLN, R.I. (March 3rd, 2015) -- The game plan is simple, nothing too complex for New Hampshire native Joey Gomez as he prepares for the biggest fight of his life.
"I just want to punch people in the face, man," Gomez said.
Facing rising star Kin Moy Friday, March 13th, 2015 on the nationally-televised portion of "CES MMA XXVIII" at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I., could take Gomez's new career to new heights. The same applies for Moy (6-1, 2 KOs), who is fresh off a trial run with Bellator in September looking to get back to the big stage.
When two fighters sharing similar goals collide in front of a worldwide audience, the results are usually epic, and the Gomez-Moy bantamweight showdown could steal the spotlight from the bigger, more established names on the main card.
"I want a war," Gomez said. "I've been waiting for a Micky Ward-Arturo Gatti fight. I want someone who will test me as a fighter." READ MORE

NO STAGE TOO BIG FOR CES MMA CHAMP FONT
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (July 7th, 2014) – The post-fight mayhem might’ve taken more out of Rob Font than the fight itself.
Within moments of his breakthrough win Saturday over George Roop at UFC 175 in Las Vegas, Font went from little-known regional standout to the talk of mixed martial arts, an overnight social media celebrity born from the impact of the fateful, overhand right that sent two careers spiraling in different directions.
“Everything changed,” said Font, the reigning CES MMA featherweight champ from Boston who dominated his UFC debut this past weekend with a first-round knockout win.

The former Ultimate Fighter contestant promised excitement in his title fight against 4x UFC veteran Ricardo Funch.
He did so with a second round submission.
He then promised even more fireworks in his AXS TV Fights debut. He delivered with an 11 second knockout to defend his Welterweight Championship.
For that knockout, Chuck is the CES MMA Fighter of the Month!
