Norwegian Marthin Hamlet (5-1) will step into the cage at Superior Challenge 20 on December 7. It will be the first time fighting since losing the Cage Warriors LHW title at Cage Warriors “Night of the Champions” 106 in London, England in June. “I will bounce back and shut up a lot of people.” says Hamlet to MMA Viking.
After winning his first five professional bouts since turning pro in 2017, the decorated wrestler was looking good early against Modestas Bukauskas (8-3), but the tide turned in the 4th round.
Bukauskas landed a big right hand and defended take-downs on the tiring Frontline Academy fighter, and eventually forced a TKO in round 4.
“I’m glad it (the loss) kinda happened because it made me hungry and motivated than ever.” – Hamlet
“I learned a lot from the fight. I got almost 20 minutes cage time. That’s very valuable. I going to be much more relaxed and experienced for my next fight.” says Marthin about the experience.
The 27-year-old is looking forward to fighting back with the organization he started his pro career at, winning at Superior Challenge 15, Superior Challenge 16, and Superior Challenge 17. No opponent has be announced for the bout.
“It’s like fighting in home soil” says the Norwegian about fighting in Sweden’s largest MMA promotion. “It’s crazy good organized and good energy. Also close to Norway and that means a lot of family, friends and fans will be there.”
