155lbs Title : Shogun Iron Tyson vs Koh Ibu
Tyson is no stranger to facing dangerous opponents which is a good job as thatís exactly what he has in front of him in our Co-Main Event. Last time out the 155lbs champ took on Tyler Durden and fans feared the worst but he came out with purpose and took a chance at stopping the seemingly unstoppable. He rocked Durden towards the end of the first round and then in the second he cracked him with a stunning spinning backfist that made him the first fighter to have finished him with strikes. Tyson himself seemed a little surprised that he had achieved such a remarkable feat but he had hinted before the fight that he knew how to exploit his opponents weakness. Now he just has to figure out how to do the same against an equally, if not more dangerous fighter in Ibu. The big difference is that we have already seen that Ibu has been knocked out before.
As I said, Ibu has been knocked out before but that was under previous management. Since his change of manager his record is a nice 8-2 and those defeats were by decision rather than stoppage. This suggests a bit of a tidy up un his defences as his other 3 defeats from his time under his previous management all seen him being stopped with strikes. After an impressive win over one of Tysonís friends and training partners at the recent SYN Supernova event he came to CEC and in his only fight so far he scored a massive victory over former champion Volya Nikolaev with a beautiful head kick in the second round. This propelled him to the title shot that he has now. All he needs to do is reach out and take the belt with a similar win against the current king of the 155lbs division.
155lbs : Euphegen Doubdtfire vs Fook Man
The legend returns to CEC as Euphegen Doubdtfire, two weight champion, headlines the event in a rematch against SYN 155lbs king, Fook Man. Doubdtfire has amassed an amazing and unheard of 17 fight win streak. Yeah, you read that right 17 (seventeen) fights in a row in which he has walked out the building as the winner. One of those was against the very same opponent he faces here and it ended with 2 seconds left of the second round when Fook Man chose to tap out via triangle choke instead of taking a nap. The same result would make him a happy man and would also add to his incredible win streak. At this stage it looks like there is nobody that can even come close to competing with this great fighter and everyone he faces will just become another name on the list of fallen foes.
Fook Man has a second chance to take out the top dog but has he got what it takes to make it happen on this occasion? He has bounced back with 2 wins which has earned him the opportunity for redemption. The big question still remains though, has he learned anything from that defeat that will change the outcome this time around? He definitely has the skill set to compete but actually beating Doubdtfire seems like mission impossible to any fighter just now. If Man can actually pull it off then he becomes the one with the target on his back and everyone will be coming after him so they can say they beat the man who beat the man. Now we just have to wait and see if he can get the job done second time around.

265lbs : Silas Monk vs Jean Paul Garcon
Silas Monk got back to winning ways when the doctor stepped in to save a bloodied up Devin Skrumbellos from taking any more punishment. Monk had lost the first round but turned it on in the second and had his opponent in all sorts of trouble before the medical professional called it. This was his first fight back since losing the title to Umanouke and a win was essential to get his career back on track. A second win in a row would surely put him right back into title contention and a possible rematch with Umanouke would be his desired prize but Monk really wonít care who it is he faces, as long as itís for the chance to take that belt back home with him.
Garcon has been a bit more down than up of late. A run of 1-3 in his last 4 fights has seen him slip down the rankings in a talent stacked division. A win here stops the slide but another loss could spell trouble for the former heavyweight king. The ability is still there for all to see but the 265lbs weightclass truly does have some monsters lying in wait and if youíre not on your game then you are there for the taking. Garcon is well aware of this though and he knows exactly what Monk brings to the table. His gameplan probably wonít differ much from the normal one, get him before he gets you. With 2 highly skilled knockout artists, I canít imagine this one being a particularly long fight.
265lbs Title: Ueda Umanouke vs Pena Pulkkinen
Ueda Umanouke has now put together a run of 5 straight wins since his arrival back at CEC 571. He has captured the title in that run and so far has defended it once since. He now steps into the cage in an attempt to make it 2 defences in a row and increase his win streak here to an amazing 6 fights in a very competitive division. 4 of his 5 wins have been first round stoppages which will strike fear into any heavyweight that comes up against him. Any doubters he may have had in the past have all but disappeared with more and more of them becoming fans of one of the most dangerous and exciting fighters in the organisation at the moment. This fight could prove to be his biggest test to date but he will go into it with his same confident manner as he has since his debut.
Pena Pulkkinen could very well be the one to really push the champion to his limits when he challenges for the heavyweight title in this intriguing bout. He is 1-0 at CEC after his debut unanimous decision win over ex champion, Jean Paul Garcon. It truly was a very impressive win as he seemed to control and breeze his way through all 5 rounds, every one awarded to him by all 3 of the judges sat cage side. His all round skills are unquestionable, a very dangerous striker with a ground game up there with the best fighters in the world. He has finished some of the most talented guys in the mma world and is just looking to add another name to the list and collect the heavyweight championship while he is at it.

155lbs : Volya Nikolaev vs Koh Ibu
Volya Nikolaev recently bounced back from losing the 155lbs title with an incredibly impressive submission victory over newcomer Lee Sang Seok. It was an amazing 17th submission win for Nikolaev in his career and he would love nothing more than to make it number 18 when he faces off with another fresh face to the CEC ranks. It would certainly put him back into the title scenario and earn him a much desired rubber match with Shogun Iron Tyson. But he knows he needs to think about the man in front of him first and cannot be thinking about what lies further down the road until he takes care of his immediate business in the cage.
Koh Ibu makes his CEC debut against the former CEC champion knowing that a win on his first outing would be a massive statement and would earn him a fast track to the title fight that every fighter craves. It wonít be easy, after all it is a former champion he has to get past but his skills are there for all to see and his confidence is high after an impressive win at the recent Supernova event. Itís hard to see any weaknesses in his game as he has evolved into what looks like the perfect fighter. Does he have the talent to go to the very top of the game? This fight could give us an indicataion of that.
205lbs : Sergey Beznisko vs Menace Defoe
Sergey Beznisko looks to continue his reign of terror in the 205 division on his return to CEC after his very successful stop at Supernova VIII where he earned himself a unanimous decision victory in his fight with SYN champion, Evil Nixon. Before that he had won back his title from Ras Li Judah, the man who had taken it from him previously. That was followed with a successful defence against Hyryx Dall. Now he is back in the CEC cage but on superfight duty again as he welcomes the GAMMA light heavyweight champion to his home turf and he has absolutely no intention of letting an outsider come to his patch and beat him.
Defoe believes he has what it takes to come to our cage and upset our fans by taking out our champion at 205lbs. That is most definitely easier said than done though and he will have his work cut out to take the victory here. He is on a 5 fight win streak since his defeat to Alex John Conor Burns, a man who Beznisko has bested not once but twice by knockout in his impressive CEC run. Defoe is capable of taking the win here, more than capable in fact. A single loss in his last 13 fights has included wins over some very impressive names and adding Beznisko to that list would be huge, a career defining moment could lie ahead for the GAMMA light heavyweight champion as he pursues the dream of becoming the best 205er on the planet.

135lbs : Jesus Chico Grande vs Leonardo Da Silva
Now this is a fight that has ďFight of the NightĒ written all over it. Jesus Chico Grande earned a majority decision win in his CEC debut when he faced off against former title challenger, Diagoro Yabaisama. That win provided him with a surge up the rankings and has him only a single win away from his own shot at the 135lbs strap. 13 wins in 16 professional bouts gives you an idea of what he is capable of. 11 of those wins have been stoppages via his striking skills, so we certainly know heís not afraid to throw down. Heís looking to keep this fight standing for sure as he definitely holds the advantage in that area and on the ground he knows he isnít on the same level as his opponent. He will be desperate to get the win here and possibly go on to join some of his training partners in adding his name to the list of CEC champions.
Leonardo Da Silva is standing on the verge of greatness at the tender age of 25. Considered as one of the best fighters around at the moment, thatís not surprising when you see him in action. A solitary loss in his career was avenged in the rematch immediately and he hasnít looked like dropping another since. His CEC debut ended well with a unanimous decision victory over the incredibly talented Eliitti Paavo and now he is determined to get back in there and make it 2 wins from 2 fights. He may not be as well versed in the striking department as Grande but he is the more well rounded of the fighters with his sound stand up and phenomenal ground game. He has shown his potential in all areas in his career with wins by knockout and submission but itís definitely on the mat that he holds a distinct advantage here. This is going to be one hell of a fight!
265lbs : Pena Pulkkinen vs Jean Paul Garcon
Pena Pulkkinen joins our heavyweight division after a stint on the sidelines since the departure of Underground from the tycooniverse. Before they closed their doors he put together a 3 fight win streak so he is riding high on confidence on his arrival and will look to bring that to the CEC cage on his debut. He wonít have a nice and easy introduction to life here though as he has to face a fighter who has held the championship belt on more than one occasion. It shouldnít phase someone as talented as he is though and with 29 fights under his belt already, he should be accustomed to the pressures the fight game brings. His elite level striking should definitely go down well with the fans and if he puts on the type of displays he has in the past he should become a favourite in no time at all.
That former champion I mentioned is none other than heavyweight superstar, Jean Paul Garcon. When you talk about elite level striking then you have to think of this guy, he could have wrote the book on such a topic. He recently got back to winning ways after he had suffered back to back defeats. That win came against another debutant in Devin Skrumbellos and it was a technical knockout in the second round. A repeat performance here would be a very welcome outcome for Garcon and he would be more than happy to show another new face that he is the man to beat if you want to make it to the top. In fact, another win for him puts him back in line for yet another chance to bring that title back to Paris and Iím sure he would love nothing more than to make that happen. A thrilling main event lies ahead.

205lbs : Alex John Conor Burns vs Ras Li Judah
The rematch is on! After a hard fought draw last time out, we get the opportunity to see who is the best 205er out of these 2 warriors. Burns was adamant he won the first encounter and wasnít willing to allow any other fight to be made until he proved to the world that he should have been awarded the decision. So now he has his chance to do just that. Itís safe to say that the opening round of that fight belonged to Burns and according to him, the second round was also a fairly open and shut case for him as well. This was the round that split the judges though with all 3 seeing it slightly differently, one for Burns, one for Judah and one saw it as even. The disappointment for Burns was that he had his opponent in all sorts of trouble when he cut and rocked him in the middle round but just couldnít finish the job. This time he may be a bit more ruthless which could prove decisive by either earning him the finish or leave him open for Judah to counter.
Judah is in the same boat. He knows he lost the opening round and he knows he took the final round, itís just the one in between that leaves the result up for debate. So for him, winning the rematch in convincing fashion will leave all discussions of who won first time around null and void. A draw is never a satisfying result for a fighter, it leaves a feeling of unfinished business. Well now we get to see it being finished when we get the fighters back to do it all again. Judah showed great heart and determination in the first fight, he was in trouble but he came through the other side and indeed finished the fight stronger than he started it. Maybe this time if he gets hurt a little earlier he will have more time to really put his stamp on the fight and come away with the win.
265lbs Title : Ueda Umanouke vs Matt Hunt
Ueda Umanouke has continued to go from strength to strength since his arrival here making it 4 wins in a row since debuting at CEC 571. After previously disposing of 2 former champions he proceeded to take out Silas Monk in the opening round of their contest and with that became the new heavyweight champion. Now his job is to defend that belt in a very talent rich division and his first challenger is certainly no pushover. We are now at a point though where Ueda outstriking fighters who on paper have the better stand up isnít really a surprise anymore. So despite yet again looking like the best chance to win would be on the ground, we fully expect Umanouke to once again go for the kill on the feet in his first title defence attempt.
Matt Hunt will have studied the champion to try and figure out how he can take the belt from him in his first shot at the title after a total of 21 fights here. This is his second stint at CEC and he has looked incredibly dangerous since making his return, stopping each of his opponents and performing very impressively in those fights. He got pretty close to title contention a few times in the past but this time he has the opportunity to become the king of the division right in front of him, all he has to do now is reach out and take it. A massive 29 knockout wins are the proof that he is capable of doing just that. A highly anticipated main event is sure to have everyone on the edge of their seats but only time will tell who is the fighter that will be walking out as the champion.

155lbs Title : Shogun Iron Tyson vs Tyler Durden
Recently crowned lightweight champion Shogun Iron Tyson makes his first defence of his title in this, his second reign. First time around he failed to defend the belt and lost it to Jolly Leg Byrd via split decision. He has looked a much more confident fighter recently and racked up win number three in a row when he took the title from Volya Nikolaev in a unanimous decision win. A tough test lies ahead of him here though and he will have to be at his very best if he wants exorcise his demons and successfully defend his belt this time. His record shows that his knockout win and his decision win tally are very similar but it may be his ability to grind out results that will be the difference against a fighter that has never suffered a knockout.
Tyler Durden finally gets the title shot his fans have been screaming out for. A loss on his CEC debut was followed up with a trio of wins but a setback was on the cards when he faced the future champion, Volya Nikolaev, a unanimous decision defeat being the outcome. However, he has bounced back in tremendous fashion stringing together another impressive run, this time a 4 fight win streak. He has become a bit of a decision master in his run here and his ability to outscore his opponents make him a tricky fighter to come up against. This will surely be his strategy again in this fight as he comes up against a man who has been stopped only once in 58 fights. This one certainly looks like it will go the distance so letís hope we have some competent judges in the arena.
185lbs : Dasha Karimov vs Steve Belliveau
Dasha Karimov got back to winning ways with a second round technical knockout of Cole Orion. It was a welcome return to form after back to back defeats at the hands of current middleweight champion, Zeus Obliteratii. Now he is looking to add another victory to his CEC record when two former 185lbs champions face of in this intriguing headliner. Dasha also wants to earn a little revenge for his training buddy, Jay Gatsby, who lost to Belliveau recently via decision. As well as revenge, a win here would throw his name back into the hat of possible title contenders and the idea of a third fight with Zeus would certainly grab his interest.
Steve Belliveau has found himself on a nice little run of late, making it a third win on the trot with the aforementioned victory over Jay Gatsby. A fairly ordinary looking 6-5 record since joining CEC is quite deceptive as his fights have all been against top of the food chain fighters and like Karimov he looks to be just another win away from that title fight he so desperately craves again. His last defeat was actually to the current champion so getting that shot again is something he wants to get for more than one reason. Steve knows he has the power in his hands to stop his opponent, that power along with the fact that Karimov has a few knockout losses on his record will fill him with confidence. A thoroughly entertaining main event is definitely what lies ahead.

265lbs : DJ Maximus vs Pierre St. Georges
DJ Maximus is undoubtedly a talented fighter, so far in his CEC career he has just lacked consistency but he will be looking to change all that starting with his fight against Pierre St. Georges. His defeats in our org have both been in title fights to elite level fighters in Jean Paul Garcon and Silas Monk so itís not like he is losing to nobodies. He also holds a knockout win over his opponents training partner, Richard Kuklinsky so that will boost his confidence ahead of this bout. He knows he is capable of knocking out anyone with his unbelievable punching power and he also knows that St. Georges chin can be got to. He just needs to go in and do the business and get his career back on track with a win.
Pierre St. Georges is out for blood and out for a little bit of that sweet sweet revenge for his buddy. He also needs to get back in the win column after back to back losses in his last two fights. Before those defeats he had won the title after putting together a nice little run and looked as though he could be the guy that would hold onto the belt for a good period of time. The fight game is tough though and youíre only as good as your last fight. So for Pierre a win is essential to keep him near the top of the division and in the hunt for a shot at that title again in the future. He has shown that his striking ability is up there with the best of them and it only takes one punch from these big fighters. Maximus has been stopped by strikes 14 times in his career, Pierre really wants to have increased that number to 15 by the time this fighter is over.
185lbs Title : Zeus Obliteratii vs Edward Stoker
Zeus Obliteratii gets his chance to avenge his loss at CEC 538 when he steps into the cage to face Edward Stoker. This time he has much more to lose as he puts his 185lbs title on the line against the man who outpointed him in all three rounds in their previous meeting. The current champion will feel that he has progressed as a fighter since that day though and that he now utilises his skills much more effectively as a result. Knowing that he has something to prove to the world and to himself will only spur him on and drive him towards getting a different result and retaining his title. On paper he looks the more complete fighter but as we know in this sport, nothing can happen.
Stoker on the other hand knows he has what it takes to win against this opponent, he has done it before and it was a fairly convincing decision when they met before. But every fighter knows that each and every time you step into the cage you have to prove yourself all over again and thats what Stoker aims to do. He also knows how to win a title as he has held the CEC belt on two previous occasions and now looks to make it a third successful time he has taken the belt from someone in our org. In fact, he has succeeded in winning 7 title fights in his time with us which is incredible considering the talent that currently resides in his division. If he does walk away with the belt after this fight then he will be throwing his name firmly into contention as possibly the best 185lbs fighter in CEC history.
22 Apr 18 - Main and Co-Main Event Previews
265lbs : Andrey Kusnetcov vs Matt Hunt
In the Co-Main Event we have a heavyweight fighter making his debut on the card called Andrey Kuznetcov and he arrives loaded with potential. He comes with a 16-2 record with 13 of those wins coming by way of his sensational striking ability which certainly makes him a man to take notice of. We hear that he has a solid ground game as well but he prefers to stand up and throw his hands until the fight is over and done with. This will obviously make him a popular fighter with fans who love nothing more than to see fists flying, blood spilling and knockouts happening. Hopefully he hasnít bitten off a bit more than he can chew with his first opponent though, he will have to use every last bit of his fantastic skills to come up with a debut win.
Matt Hunt has got his second stint at CEC off to a flyer with 2 stoppage wins in 2 fights since his return. His first time around may have ended with a fairly average 10-8 record but the comeback wins he now holds over Maki Pulu and Nova Zigaman has got tongues wagging and people are excited to see where he can go this time around. A third win in a row would definitely lead to the upper echelons of the heavyweight division and his name would all of a sudden be mentioned in title fight discussions. He now looks to add the newcomer Kuznetcov to his list of beaten foes to make that leap to the next level. He has the power to end the fight early but will have to be wary as his opponent also holds that card as well. This could be all about who strikes first rather than any technical ability that is possessed.
265lbs : Devin Skrumbellos vs Jean Paul Garcon
Devin Skrumbellos is a new face in the heavyweight division that the CEC audience should be getting very excited about. He arrives with a record of 26-11 and all 26 of his wins have come as a result of knockout/technical knockout, a massive 21 of his stoppage wins have been in the opening round. His world class striking is definitely something to stand back and admire unless of course you are in the cage with him because if you do that then itís an early night for you. His debut may be against a tough fighter but Skrumbellos is not even slightly concerned by this and knows if he performs to his best then it doesnít matter who is across the cage from him. A debut win drops him right smack in the middle of the championship picture. Great risk but with great reward in front of him.
Garcon is that tough opponent I mentioned. He may be coming off back to back defeats but he is a former champion here and he definitely has the heart of one for sure. He has beaten many of the best fighters around and his defeats in CEC have only been to the truly elite in the weightclass. In fact in his last 2 losses, one was the loss of his title and the other was to the current champion so there is no shame in them. He will be looking to bounce back big here though and although he knows his foe is a knockout specialist, he also knows he can and has been knocked out himself before. This looks to be the key to the fight as both have the power to end it at any time. The most important thing for Garcon is to stop the slide asap, another loss would not be a welcome outcome for him.
18 Apr 18 - Main and Co-Main Event Previews
265lbs : Richard Kuklinsky vs Samson Wade
Richard Kuklinsky arrives at CEC with a 12-3 record, 11 of those wins coming via knockout so we know he has power in his hands. A talented stand up fighter, his skills look like they are of the standard that will take him to the top of the division in due course. An ever evolving fighter he may be but his bread and butter is clearly seen on the feet and adding another victim to his knockout list is always on his mind. He now has the opportunity to announce his arrival on the biggest stage when he finally steps into the CEC cage for his debut and fans are eager to see what he will bring to the table in an already exciting and incredibly talented heavyweight division.
Samson Wade is the fighter that will get to welcome Kuklinsky to the cage, Wade himself will only be making his third appearance in our prestigious organisation, his previous two fights sadly have not went his way having been stopped by strikes in both encounters. Taking the positives though you can see that both defeats were to guys that have held gold here, his loss to Jean Paul Garcon was actually for the title since he arrived as the number 1 heavyweight from Aggressive Damage and Timur Rubin was a previous champion also. Now more than anything he wants to stop the slide and get back into the winners circle so he can start the climb back towards the top. He knows he faces a dangerous striker but holding 22 knockout wins of his own proves that he can hang with anyone on the feet and he certainly wont be afraid to trade blows when this bout gets underway. This one could be a blink and youll miss it kind of fight, an early stoppage for either fighter wouldnt be a huge surprise.
265lbs Title : Silas Monk vs Ueda Umanouke
Silas Monk has only lost twice in his CEC career. Both of those were to the same fighter, Pierre St. Georges. He avenged those defeats when he stopped his foe right at the start of the second round in their third fight due to strikes and with that he also took home the heavyweight title. A successful first defence would follow with a first round stoppage of DJ Maximus, again via strikes. Now he moves on to his second defence against a dangerous opponent but will feel he has the stand up skills to earn another knockout win. With 23 of his 24 career wins ending that way it would be hard to imagine he wouldnt be looking for the big finish again. He definitely holds the advantage there so will be happy if the fight stays on the feet.
Ueda Umanouke has surprised many in his short time with us and doesnt plan on stopping his role of underdog that pulls off the upset any time soon. Stopping Jean Paul Garcon by strikes in the very first round of their encounter made it a third win in a row with us and also put a second former CEC heavyweight champion on his list of names he holds victories over. This time its not a former champion he faces but the current king of the division. Will that make a difference? Or has a new era dawned on us? The era of The Yatomi Brawl. We know he is capable in the stand up but will we get to see this awesome ground game that we hear so much about since he is in there with a very dangerous knockout specialist? All these questions will be answered once these warriors step into our cage for this highly anticipated showdown.
