John Gotti III Eyes Pro MMA Debut at CES MMA 46 on Oct. 27

By Brian Knapp Oct 13, 2017
John Gotti III, the grandson of the late New York mobster John Gotti, will meet Johnny Adams in a featured CES MMA 46 pairing on Oct. 27 at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island. CES MMA officials on Thursday announced the booking.

“I chose my pro debut with CES because I know several of the fighters that have fought for them,” Gotti said in a press release. “They said they were good guys to work with and that they put on a great show, so it was a natural fit when I heard they were promoting a show on Oct. 27. The significance of the date is that it would have been my late grandfather’s 77th birthday, and I wanted to honor him on that day.”

John Gotti, aka “The Teflon Don,” was once the boss of the Gambino crime family and became the face of organized crime in America in the 1980s and 1990s.

CES MMA 46 will be headlined by a three-round battle between Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran John Howard and journeyman Roger Carroll.
