CES MMA 43 will take place in two weeks from the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly, Massachusetts and will be headlined by a featherweight bout as Pedro Gonzalez will return for the first time in a year as he will meet Bruno “Jacare” Dias.

Gonzalez (11-5) enters this fight card riding a four fight winning streak and is coming off a submission victory at CES MMA 35 against Andres Jeudi last year. He was scheduled to face Matt Bessette for the CES MMA bantamweight title last year, but an injury forced him off the fight card and this will be his first fight in 364 days.

On this edition of “The MMA Report Podcast Extra,” Gonzalez talks about being on the sidelines for the last year and his fight in two weeks at CES MMA 43 against Dias.
