After the success of CES 55 and the first-ever MMA event held in Connecticut, the promotion returns to the Connecticut Convention Center for CES 56. The event takes place May 31st in Hartford, Connecticut. While notable CES contracted fighters such as William Knight and Fabio Cherant get ready to compete for a UFC contract on season three of DWTNCS, some familiar faces from CES 55 return. Among the returning names is one challenging for a CES title.

The Challenger

Dan Dubuque picks up where he left when he challenges Bruce Boyington for the promotions featherweight title. Dubuque makes a quick turnaround after defeating Antonio Castillo Jr. by unanimous decision at CES 55. The victory brought Dubuque’s record with the promotion to 2-0. Previous to this recent run at the CES title, Dubuque held the Cage Titans lightweight strap. He did so by topping the formerly undefeated Jimmy Manning in the main event of Cage Titans 38. Currently, Dubuque is on a 4 fight win streak. He’s won 6 of his last 7.
