Having anticipated a tough fight against Gavin ‘The War Horse’ Sterrit, ‘Stapes’ came out from the opening bell hungry and ready to do work. In just over a minute, Stapes sank in a rear naked choke to be crowned the World Champion.
He now officially sits at the top of the talent filled roster of the BAMMA lightweight division. All of his outings for the BAMMA promotion have seen him finish world class competition with each performance showing an improved Martin Stapleton.
Becoming a world champion Stapleton’s goal since he first started competing professionally in 2007, so when asked by Severe MMA what he planned to do next, his answer was short and concise;
“Keep bringing me world class opponents and I’ll just keep dropping ‘em.”
