It’s another packed weekend of combat sports across the various television/ streaming media platforms.  It all begins on Friday evening as the Classic Sports and Entertainment MMA promotion returns to UFC Fight Pass for CES MMA 59.

Coverage of this event begins on Fight Pass at 8 p.m. EDT, 5 p.m. PDT from the Twin River Casino in the promotion’s homebase of Lincoln, RI.

That’s not all the MMA at your disposal on Friday night, as Bellator MMA returns for Bellator 231 in Uncasville, CT with a full slate of fights.

More on the Bellator events scheduled for this weekend later on.

In total, CES MMA  59 will feature five MMA fights, highlighted by a contest for the CES MMA Heavyweight championship.

Incumbent champion Greg Rebello (25-9) will fight challenger Parnell Davis (9-6) in a five-round contest to close the show.

Contender Comparison:

Heading into the Friday night headliner, Greg Rebello stands six feet even, but Tapology has no such information accessible for Parnell Davis.

Rebello has gone 3-2 in his last five fights, most recently winning by first-round knockout vs. Kevin Haley back in July to capture the belt in the CES 57 main event.

In the other corner, Parnell Davis has gone 1-4 in his last five fights, most recently scoring a unanimous decision vs. Ryan Delf in Caged Aggression 25 on Aug. 24.

The Tale of the Tape:

Tapology shows that champion Greg Rebello has a 73-inch reach, with no such information available for challenger Parnell Davis.
