Cage Warriors confirm yet another world title fight for their mammoth June 29th card – undefeated Norwegian superstar Marthin Hamlet vs rising UK powerhouse Modestas Bukauskas for the light heavyweight belt. 3 further bouts have also been announced for the pro prelims.

There’s no stopping Cage Warriors’ efforts to ensure June 29th is the biggest night in the history of the promotion, and the latest addition is a European showdown for the light heavyweight title formerly held by MMA legend Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping.

Norwegian national hero Marthin Hamlet is a 7-time national wrestling champion and has picked up 15 World Cup medals in his illustrious wrestling career. Much like Olympic medallist Mark O. Madsen – now a top contender in Cage Warriors’ welterweight division – Hamlet is one of the most credentialed Scandinavian athletes to put on the yellow gloves and test his skills in Europe’s leading MMA promotion.

Hamlet made the switch to MMA in 2017, and signed to the Cage Warriors Academy Denmark a year later. Since his debut he’s picked up 5 straight wins including 2 knockouts and 2 submissions. 

“I’m looking forward to this historic event,” says Hamlet. “I have been competing against the best in wrestling for many years, so after 5 fights and 5 solid wins in MMA, I’m feeling ready to show how good I am.”

Meeting Hamlet on June 29th is Modestas Bukauskas, now on a 4-fight win streak, whose incredible comeback win over Marcin Wójcik was one of the highlights of the night during Cage Warriors’ last visit to London earlier in the year.
