CES has always produced solid fight nights and with CES 63 tonight they bring back a staple in the New England MMA scene while also highlighting other talented fighters on its roster.
John “Doomsday” Howard makes his first appearance since 2019 in which he fought in the PFL. The UFC vet has notable wins over names like Dennis Hallman, Uriah Hall, and Siyar Bahadurzada and is always laser focused to fight in front his people in the New England area. He has a combined record of 7-3 in the state of Massachusetts with five of those wins coming by way of submission. He has a complete game on the ground and standing and when you pair that with his veteran status he is prime position for a fun performance.
Opposite Howard he will be facing off against Ozzie Alvarez who is fighting out of the famed Kings MMA but is coming off two losses of his own and also hasn’t fought since 2019. He has solid striking ability, as most do who train under the famed Kings MMA, and pair that approach with “Doomsday” and CES 63 may have a fun main event on its hands.
In the co-main event, Carlos Candelario returns to action for the first time since picking up a win on the Dana White Contender Series all the way back in 2017. He will be returning to rematch Miguel Restrepo, who also has not fought in over three years and holds a 5-5-1 record. In their previous matchup, Candelario picked up a second-round submission victory.
The rest of the card is filled with regional talent as well as some pro debuts so a lot of fighters looking to make an impact and put their names out there at CES 63.
