The main event of CES MMA 49 on April 6 will be a title fight as Chris Curtis will defend the CES MMA welterweight title against Jason Norwood on the fight card coming from the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island.
Curtis (17-5) will be defending the CES MMA welterweight title for the first time in one year as he scored a TKO victory over Will Santiago at CES MMA 42. Since that victory, he has scored two straight wins outside of the promotion and both of those matchups were title fights. In his most recent fight, he claimed the Fight Night welterweight title at Fight Night Medicine Hat 4 with a decision victory over Peter Grajcar.
During last week’s podcast, Curtis was a guest on the podcast to preview his matchup in two weeks against Norwood. Along with previewing the matchup, he talked about his recent victory over Grajcar and training in California.
