CES 65 Results – De Castro vs Williams
CES returns to its home state of Rhode Island for the first time in over a year to host CES 65 in Providence. MMA Sucka has you covered for the entire CES 65 card here.
In the main event, the UFC veteran, Yorgan De Castro (6-3), takes the veteran holder of MMA, Danyelle williams (8-6-1). De Castro from Cape Verde resides in Massachusetts and trained at the Regiment Training Center in Fall River. The 33-year-old will make his first non-UFC appearance in more than two years at CES 65. That being said, he is no stranger to the CES cage as he will make his fourth step for promotion tonight. . De Castro is known for his powerful strikes and can extinguish the lights of many people with one blow. In his six professional victories, he has finished five by knockout, including a first round knockout Justin tafa at UFC 243. De Castro is looking to end a three-fight slippage and return to the winning column for the first time in more than two years at CES 65.
Danyelle Williams appears to be spoiling De Castro’s return. Williams is making his return to the cage for the first time since 2017. Although he briefly moved away from MMA, he was involved in several boxing bouts. The Minnesota native trains at MX Gym Life and Doc’s Gym. In his professional career, 10 of his 14 fights went without the need for judges. At 39, his goal is to upset the UFC vet in his home region.
Co-headliners of the card are PFL and WSOF veterans Andre Harrison (21-2-1) and Brazilian finisher Chalet Mauro (14-7), who face off in a featherweight fight. Harrison of Sanford MMA is realistically a win far from receiving the appeal of a large organization. After struggling to find a fight, he finally returns to the cage for the first time in two years. The 33-year-old is making his promotional debut tonight and looking to make the most of it. Harrison has had a professional career so far, winning the WSOF, Titan FC and Ring of Combat Featherweight Straps. He shared the cage with Lance Palmer, Movlid Khaybulaev, and Kurt holobaugh.
The only man standing in the way of Harrison’s call-up to a major organization is Mauro Chalet. Chalet is also taking his first walk to the CES cage tonight. It will be the Brazilians’ first fight in over a year and a half as they look to bounce back from a loss to the UFC featherweight Damon jackson. That being said, he’s won three of his last four games. Besides Jackson, Chaulet also knocked down with Renato Moicano and Edimilson Souza. It will be a high level fight, so don’t miss it.
Some other notable names on the card are CES ve Ashiek Ajim (4-1) and Bellator veterans Nathan Ghareeb (4-1) and Jean Douma (5-2).
