The Luta Livre fighter Martin "Stapes" Stapleton conquered another belt. Representing Team Kaobon, "Stapes" defeated the Wolfslair fighter Ashley Smith to get the "Clash of Warriors" lightweight belt.
Both fighters started the round with a number of kicks to the head. Martin followed this with a number of good punches to the head, but Ashley was quick to respond in kind, with the two of them appearing to be very evenly matched. Martin is attacking more than Ashley, but not all of his blows are connecting. Martin manages to get Ashley pinned against the side of the cage but Ashley is quick to escape. After exchanging a few punches and kicks in the middle of the cage, Martin gets a number of good blows in and follows this by once again getting Ashley pinned up against the cage for the last few seconds of the round. Round 2 begins and Martin wastes no time getting a good punch in. Ashley responds with a kick to the head. The two of them still seem pretty evenly matched, although Martin seems to be dictating the fight. Following a grapple, Ashley is spun into the side of the cage for a second but quite literally bounces back. So far in this round, Ashley seems unable to do any real attacking – although he keeps trying, none of his efforts are really making a difference. Round 3 is more of the same. Martin continues to dominate the fight and, despite numerous attempts, Ashley cannot make any headway. At the end of round 3, Martin is declared the winner by the judges’ unanimous decision and takes home the Clash of Warriors Lightweight British title belt. Congratulations "Stapes"!!!
