Binns Management is going back up to Rhode Island with 3 clients fighting at CES MMA 25 on August 8th. CES MMA 25: Felix vs. Lane is a stacked MMA fight card and will be airing live on AXS TV. There will be three scheduled Binns Management clients fighting on the card including Julian “Nitrane” Lane, Gemiyale “Baby Hercules” Adkins, and the Professional MMA debut of Andrew Chirico.
Julian Lane holds a Professional MMA record of 7-3-1. Lane is a TUF 16 alum and a Bellator MMA, CES MMA, and CFFC veteran. Lane has faced the likes of CFFC Lightweight Champion Paul Felder and UFC Welterweight George Sullivan. Lane was originally supposed to face Luis “Rockstar” Felix on June 27th at CES MMA 24, but Felix had to pull out of the fight due to injury. Lane ended up facing fellow Binns Management client Gemiyale Adkins instead, winning via Unanimous Decision. Lane is now scheduled to main event CES MMA 25 against Felix for the vacant CES MMA Lightweight Championship, which will air live on AXS TV.
Gemiyale Adkins will be returning to the CES MMA cage for the third time as he faces off with undefeated fighter Nate Andrews. Adkins is a Bellator MMA, Matrix Fights, and CFFC veteran and has faced many tough opponents including Julian Lane, TUF 11 runner-up Kris McCray, TUF 7 alum Dante Rivera, and UFC veteran Charlie Brenneman. Adkins had this to say about his upcoming opponent, Andrews:
“I believe he’s not ready for the caliber fighter like myself. He’s 6-0, but he hasn’t fought anyone and most of his opponents seem to lay down for him. It’s going to be a real test for him because people know what I can do. When you fight people who have the same skill as you, it’s different than someone who has more experience, and is a different caliber fighter, and has been in those deep waters before. Another thing is, I’m undefeated against undefeated fighters. There’s some 6-0 fighters who are serious, and some who are bulls**t based on who they’ve fought. He’s never been in a fight where he was hurt. He’s an up and comer and I’ve been in the game a while, but I’m coming to take his head off, like usual. People know what I bring, I bring power and strength hence the name ‘Baby Hercules’.”
Also fighting at CES MMA 25 from Binns Management, making his Professional MMA debut is Andrew Chirico. Chirico trains at Renzo Gracie Academy in New York alongside fellow fighters including TUF 19 alum Roger Zapata and CFFC veteran Tommy Marcellino. Chirico is hoping to start off his Professional MMA record with a win over the tough Evan Scott.
