If you like to keep the judges out of your MMA viewing, Friday’s CES MMA 47 event was the show for you.
The event, which aired on AXS TV from Twin River Casino in Lincoln, R.I., featured six main-card bouts. Six ended via stoppage – all in the first round.
In fact, the entire main card featured just 16 total minutes of fighting.
In the headliner, Greg Rebello (23-8) needed just 82 seconds to stop fellow heavyweight Derrick Brown (7-5) via TKO with punches. It marked his 11th victory under the CES MMA banner, where the 35-year-old Rhode Island native almost exclusively since 2012. After the win, which came via stiff combo, he called for a shot in the UFC.
In the co-main event, Nate Andrews (12-1) picked up his sixth straight victory and fifth consecutive submission win with a first-round rear-naked choke of Tyler Combs (15-17-1) in a 160-pound catchweight affair.
Check out all of the highlights above.
