Fabian ‘The Assassin’ Edwards Vs. Kent ‘Hammer Horn’ Kauppinen
The BAMMA breakout star of 2017 makes his first appearance of 2018 as he steps in against his most experienced opponent to date. Edwards is aiming firmly for Mike ‘Sea Bass’ Shipman’s BAMMA World title, but first he must clear negotiate the formidable obstacle of Kent Kauppinen on March 9th. Undefeated in his career thus far, ‘The Assassin’ has been claiming victories across the BAMMA Middleweight division and he expects this fight to be no different. However, Kauppinen doesn’t intend to be another stepping stone for Edwards and with far more experience than anyone else Fabian has ever faced, he is not backing down from the challenge either. To claim the win, Kauppinen will need to do what 13 fighters before him have been unable to do and solve the Fabian Edwards riddle.
Fabian ‘The Assassin’ Edwards (3-0) Winner of BAMMA's breakout star of 2017 award, the Birmingham based Middleweight has his eyes set on the BAMMA Middleweight Title in 2018. Unafraid to take the fight anywhere, the UTC man has 8 T/KO stoppages and 3 submission victories in his unblemished career, with only one fight going the distance. Claiming that there is no one who can stop him, his record backs up that claim and with his brother and former BAMMA Welterweight title holder Leon ‘Rocky’ Edwards in his corner, he has the ammunition to back up his fire power in the cage.
Kent ‘Hammer Horn’ Kauppinen (10-2) The Dragonslair MMA fighter will be making his BAMMA debut at the SSE Arena in March and has been fighting since 2009. Having fought in several different weight classes, he seems to have finally found a home at Middleweight. He will be by far the most experienced fighter that Edwards has ever faced and will be looking to put all that experience to good use on March 9th, and manage to do what no one else has before him and have his hand raised at the end of the fight. With 7 of his 10 victories coming by T/KO and 3 by submission, this all rounder is ready to spring a huge upset.
