The vacant CES MMA Welterweight Title is going to get a new owner at CES MMA 52 as Jason Norwood faces Jeremiah Wells.
Norwood (18-5-0) is looking for his first win under the CES MMA banner, having dropped a bout to former welterweight champion Chris Curtis at CES MMA 49. Norwood also competed once in Bellator MMA, picking up a second round submission win over Jon Kirk at Bellator 3 in April of 2009. Norwood has suffered a total of five losses as a professional MMA fighter, but he has yet to be finished by way of submission.
Wells (5-1-1) has yet to suffer a defeat while competing in CES MMA, having beaten the duo of Gary Balletto Jr. and Jon Manley. Wells has previously challenged for the Cage Fury Fighting Championships Welterweight Title, losing to then champion Emmanuel Walo at CFFC 68. Wells is going to be fighting for the third time in 2018, making it the busiest year of his professional MMA career.
CES MMA 52 takes place on Friday, August 17 from the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with Jason Norwood and Jeremiah Wells headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on AXS TV.
