CES MMA returned to the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford tonight, holding an event headlined by a Featherweight Title fight between Dan Dabuque and champion Bruce Boyington. It aired on UFC Fight Pass.
In the end, Dabuque failed to dethrone Boyington, dropping a split decision in the main event. In perhaps more noticable news though, Nick Newell rebounded from just his 2nd professional loss, scoring a 1st round submission and in his post-fight interview, asking "what the f**k are you waiting for UFC?"
