Two exciting matchups have been added to the CES MMA 33 undercard, airing on March 11th, live at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI.
The first is Mak Kelleher is set to return to the CES MMA cage for the fourth time since his debut back in January of 2015. Earlier this year, he secured his first victory as a professional, defeating James Grant Murrin at CES MMA 32, and he will be looking to capitalize on this momentum to begin the first win streak of his career.
Standing across form Kelleher on March 11th will be Matt Tullos, promotional newcomer set to make his professional debut. After going undefeated at 7-0 with four finishes, Tullos has built a strong reputation for himself as one of the most talented prospects in New England.
Fellow New England prospect Kris Moutinho is set to make his professional debut against the 1-0 New Yorker, Giorgi Kudukhashvilli. Both Moutinho and Kudukhashvilli had outstanding amateur careers, amassing 6-1 and 3-0 records, respectfully. And both are looking forward to making their promotional debut on March 11th.
Professional newcomers Matt Tullos and Kris Moutinho shared some words with CES MMA on their upcoming debuts:
I’m very excited to finally be stepping into the pro circuit, especially for such a great promotion. I know I’m fighting a really tough, durable opponent, and I look forward to this opportunity, especially on this stage.
I’m really excited to fight for CES. That’s the show that puts you to the next level in this area, so I’m really excited to show people that I go out there and I dominate fights. CES is going to love me, I guarantee it.
