Matt Ewin vs. Martin Kampmann

Confirmed As The Main Event

For Cagewarriors Strike Force 2 - UK vs. the World

July 16, 2005

Skydome Arena

Coventry, England



Special Thanks go out to Ian Dean and for the following article:

The Cagewarriors Fighting Championships are proud to announce that Danish star Martin Kampmann will

replace Damien Riccio in the Main Event of Cagewarriors Strike Force 2 at the Skydome Arena in Coventry

on July 16th.


The Cagewarriors Middleweight Champion Matt Ewin is back at Cagewarriors on July 16th as he looks to

put behind him a controversial no contest with Damien Riccio at Strike Force 1 in May when he defends his

title against the Danish Destroyer Martin "The Hitman" Kampmann. Ewin was supposed to take on his arch

nemesis Damien Riccio again at Strike Force 2 until the Frenchman pulled out with an injury (This fight will

now take place at CW:SF 3 on September 24th).

However, Cagewarriors President Dougie Truman was able to find a solid replacement for Ewin in the form

of Martin Kampmann who has already beaten Ewin at House of Pain Fight Night 2 in Wales back in March.

On that date a series of wicked elbow shots by Kampmann resulted in Ewin being unable to come out for

round 2.


Now Ewin wants revenge and has stated last week on Pro Karate Weekly that he was controlling the bout up

to that point and is confident about winning the rematch and defending his title at the Skydome Arena,

Coventry on July 16th.


Matt Ewin has beaten some of the best names in the UK MMA scene such as and has held the

Cagewarriors Middleweight title since May 2004 when he beat Gregory Bouchelaghem in round 4 via Ref

Stoppage. Ewin has also been famous for ending the unbeaten streak of young hopeful Ross Pettifer, Suley

Mahmoud, Alex Evans, Sol Gilbert and Gaz Roriston as well as internationals such as BJJ Black Belt

Tony Torres from Brazil and Frenchmen Jess Liaudin and Xavier Foupa-Pokam. However, he has

struggled as of late and is without a win in his last five fights against foreign opposition in other shows.


Whilst Martin Kampamnn, at only 23 years old, has already impressed many with his strength and all round

ability. Despite his age, Kampmann is already a former Danish Thai Boxing Champion, a Submission

Wrestling Champion and also has experience in professional boxing too. These all round skills have helped

Kampmann to a total MMA record of 9-2 and he has looked impressive as of late by defeating Ewin back in

March, as well as defeating the likes of Xavier Foupa-Pokam and Toni Vivas.


However, Kampmannís most significant victory came at KOTC UK on June 24th when he defeated the then

8-6-1, American Brendan Seguin via KO with a perfect head kick which sent the multi time KOTC and

Superbrawl veteran crashing to the canvas.


Can Kampmann return to the UK and capture the CWFC Title? On July 16th at the Skydome Arena, 3000

fans will find out. Tickets start at just 10 pounds with over 1200 standard tickets sold already and with VIP

tables selling fast don't delay.
