CES 46 takes place at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island Friday (October 27, 2017) at 7pm ET on AXS TV. In the main event, UFC veteran John Howard returns to the CES cage for the first time since 2013 when he faces Roger Carroll.
Howard (24-13) retired from MMA after his loss to Abubakar Nurmagomedov at WSOF 33 and he’ll be returning to the cage for the first time since October 2016. “Doomsday” is 2-2 in his last four fights and he’ll be looking for his first win since June 2016.
In the co-main event, bantamweight Dinis Paiva looks to make it three in a row when he faces Branden Seyler. Paiva (9-6) hasn’t fought since January after an injury forced him off CES 45 in September. “Sweetbread” has won six of his last seven fights. Seyler (7-5-1) snapped his two-fight losing streak in his last bout, defeating Kris Moutinho by first-round submission at CES 45. The 28-year-old has won four of his last six fights.
