Change in opponent at CES MMA 44 is a familiar situation for Matt Bessette

The main event of tonight’s CES MMA 44 on AXS TV will be a title fight as Matt Bessette will defend the featherweight title against Rey Trujillo on the fight card coming from the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island.

Bessette (21-7) is currently on a seven fight winning streak and is 9-1 since dropping back to back fights in Bellator in 2014. His most recent win came in January at CES MMA 41 as he retained the CES MMA featherweight title with a TKO victory over Kevin Croom.

During this week’s episode of “The MMA Report Podcast,” Bessette was a guest on the podcast to preview his fight against Trujillo.
