Luis Felix defends CES MMA lightweight title against Ryan Sanders at CES MMA 36

CES MMA lightweight champion Luis Felix will be defending the promotions 155 pound title on June 10 at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island as he will have a rematch against Ryan Sanders at CES MMA 36.

The fight booking was announced by CES MMA in a press release on Monday and this will be a rematch of their bout at CES MMA 32 that Sanders won by stoppage in a non-title bout.

“That was one of the worst nights of my career. I thought I broke my leg and I froze up,” said Felix. “But, I’m still the champion, I’m ready to defend my title, and I’m excited to move forward in my career — this is the biggest fight of my life, and I’m ready for it.”

Tickets for CES MMA 36 are available at, or reserve by phone at 401-724-2253. The event will air live on AXS TV on June 10 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT with play-by-play and color commentary from UFC Hall of Famer Pat Miletich and “The Voice” Michael Schiavello.
