Dinis Paiva vs. Andre Ewell title fight headlines CES MMA 50

CES MMA’s vacant bantamweight title will be on the line on June 15 in the main event of CES MMA 50.

CES MMA officials today announced that Dinis Paiva (11-6) vs. Andre Ewell (12-4) will headline CES MMA 50 at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I., and the promotion’s 135-pound belt will be at stake. The night’s main card airs on AXS TV.

Rhode Island’s “Sweetbread” Paiva has fought all 17 of his professional career contests under the CES MMA banner and is currently 8-1 in his past nine appearances.

“It’s hard to put into words what this title would mean to me,” Paiva stated. “This is an opportunity that you dream about and look forward to for your whole career. Now that the title is finally on the line, I can’t wait to rise to the occasion to bring the belt home, and to keep the crown in New England.”

Meanwhile, “Afro Monkey” Ewell hails from California and now makes his CES MMA debut on the strength of three straight first-round finishes and an overall run of 7-1 in his past eight fights.

“All I know is this guy is going to have to adjust to me,” Ewell stated. “He definitely hasn’t fought anyone like me.

“Ask the last few opponents I’ve had. They prepared for me and thought they had me down, then I’m a different person when that cage door locks. … He’s about to jump in a swimming pool with a great white shark.”

More bouts are expected to be announced shortly.
