CES Pro Results from Foxwoods
Massachusetts-based sports organization CES (Classic Entertainment Sports), which presents both Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts, released the results for the professional fights on its Nov.15 MMA event at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket. This is the second MMA event that CES has presented in Connecticut and the first since 2010, according to spokespersons for the organization.
Josh "Freight Train" Diekman (14-5) of Groton earned a technical knock out of 41-year-old Chris Guillen (13-16) of Fort Worth, Texas at 1:15 into the opening round of their rematch. Guillen submitted Diekman when the two heavyweights previously fought in 2007. Diekman called out Tyler King, who defeated Diekman in 2012, following the bout.
