It’s Round 2
Title holder Matty Omar hasn’t got rid of him yet. Brendon Moore put up what he felt was a disappointing first shot at the Caged Steel title back in March. Matty breezed past him to claim the title. Knocked back, Brendon had to take on Matt Pepper who was also gunning for Matty’s belt and successfully took him out of the equation on #CS21. (more…)
Second time lucky!
Madars Bertholds-Fleminas was set to battle Łukasz Pilch who called him out to fight on Caged Steel 20.

AVT’s Matthew “The Hammer” Hodgson returns to Caged Steel on July 14th, with yet another tough matchup for the promotion’s amateur middleweight title. Since his first bout at Doncaster Dome in 2014, he has consistently taken on the best opposition available, and although the results may not have gone the way he wanted, he’s had invaluable experience.
Next time out, he’ll face off against Reykjavik MMA’s Thor Thorarinsson , his third Icelandic opponent, and he’ll be hoping to break his duck against the viking invaders. (more…)
Marcin “Mad Boy” Prostko is a fighter that is renowned for his all-action style. From his early days debuting in the cage with Caged Steel, to now taking on one of his biggest tests to date at Caged Steel 21, he’s had a quite a journey in front of the Doncaster crowd, and it continues on July 14th.
He’ll meet Grimsby’s James Bateman, an experienced local favourite who has been in the game for many years, briefly featuring on The Ultimate Fighter 9 back in 2009. Now running his own gym in Bateman MMA, the veteran has found a thirst for competition once again. (more…)
Grimbsy-based Latvian fighter Madars Fleminas made his professional debut in December of last year, picking up a dominant first round victory at Caged Steel 19.
Eager to keep up the momentum and work towards his goals, the up-and-coming prospect approached Lukasz Pilch – a more experienced pro from the renowned Full Contact Performance Centre – to try and get the fight on for CS 20 in March.
With a huge bout set for Fleminas, hundreds of his fans followed him to Doncaster to take on the Polish athlete, but minutes before they were due to walk out to the cage, disaster struck. Pilch had injured himself backstage, and was unable to compete. (more…)
Caged Steel professional middleweight champion Glenn Irvine has put in some stellar performances in Doncaster, making new fans with his stoppages of Rob Fulton and Marcin Prostko, and showing his versatility using KO power and submission skills.
Originally slated to defend his title in December against Matt Pepper, an injury to his opponent forced the bout off the card, to be rescheduled at Caged Steel 20 on March 17th at the Doncaster Dome.
Irvine, who fights out of the famous Next Generation Northern Ireland gym under coach Rodney Moore, was frustrated at Pepper’s withdrawal, (more…)
