Judo specialist Rick Hawn headlines CES MMA XXVIII

CES MMA returns March 13, live on AXS TV Fights from Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I., with a star-studded lineup.

In the main event, 14-time Bellator veteran and 2004 U.S. Judo Olympian Rick Hawn takes on Derek Loffer.10408132_922081137825711_8896489410958105698_n

“There are two types of people in this world, those that eat and those that get eaten. On March 13th, I will hunger no more,” said Loffer.

The evening’s co-main event features Richard Patishnock of Team Chamber MMA in East Stroudsburg, Pa.

Patishnock last challenged Justin Gaethje for the vacant World Series of Fighting lightweight title at WSOF 8 in January 2014.


It will have been more than a year layoff when Patishnock steps into the CES cage on March 13 but he tells “Training is going good; have great teammates and coaches. Been in the gym, so I’ve been ready. Focusing on getting the weight down and just staying positive.”

Also on the main card the top four bantamweights around will be in action when Kin Moy takes on Joey Gomez and Andre Soukhamthath fights Brian Kelleher.

Two ladies will make their professional debuts and start the night’s action off when Sarah Payant and Janice Meyer collide in the women’s bantamweight division.
