The Rhode Island based MMA promotion CES MMA is back again with another stacked fight card on June 27th with CES MMA 24 Felix vs. Lane. Binns Management client Julian “Nitrane” Lane will be facing off against CES MMA veteran Luis “Rockstar” Felix for the vacant CES MMA Lightweight Championship. Felix vs. Lane is an amazing main event bout for CES MMA 24, but the co-main event is just as good with former UFC veteran Ricardo “Golden Boy” Funch taking on Matrix Fights veteran Brett Oteri. Also appearing on the stacked fight card at the Twin Rivers Casino include Greg “Ribz” Rebello, Willie Brown, and Dinis “Sweetbread” Paiva.
Julian Lane appeared on the 16th season of The Ultimate Fighter with coaches Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin. Lane holds a Professional MMA record 6-3-1. Lane has fought for Bellator once in the past, and has faced some well known fighters as well including current UFC Welterweight George Sullivan and Philly’s own Paul Felder. Lane won his last fight via Unanimous Decision over Joey Bernard Holt. His opponent, Luis Felix is currently on a 2-fight wins streak and is 5-1 in his 6 CES MMA bouts, with his only loss coming via Split Decision. Felix has defeated some great fighters already including former UFC veterans Marc Stevens, Joe Proctor, and most recently, Drew Fickett.
Former UFC veteran Ricardo Funch is returning to the cage after a 2 year hiatus. Funch currently is 1-4 in his last 5 fights, but has fought some of the toughest guys in the world including Dan Miller, Mike Pyle, and the current UFC Welterweight Champion Johny Hendricks. Funch is taking on Bellator and CES MMA veteran Brett Oteri. Oteri is 1-2 in his last 3 fights including a TKO loss to Binns Management client Sam Oropeza at Matrix Fights 8 back in September of 2013. Oteri won his last bout via 2nd Round Kimura Submission, and is certainly looking to start another wins streak against a tough opponent in Funch.
