The co-main event of Friday’s CES MMA 42 will feature the return of lightweight champion Luis Felix as he will be facing Dawond Pickney in a non-title fight on the fight card coming from the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island.

Felix (14-9) has been out of competition since losing Ryan Sanders by submission at CES MMA 32 in a catchweight bout of 160 pounds and that defeat snapped a three fight winning streak.

During last week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Felix was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight on Friday night against Pickney in the co-main event of CES MMA 42.
