On Saturday, April 15, CES MMA hosted its 43rd event from the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly, Mass.
In the night’s main event, featherweight Pedro Gonzalez and Bruno Dias locked horns. The American Gonzalez entered the bout riding a four-fight winning streak. Ten of his 11 career wins have come via submission. The Brazilian Dias, dubbed “Jacare,” was looking to snap a two-fight skid under the Absolute Championship Berkut banner. Like his opponent, Dias has picked up the majority of his victories on the mat.
