In MMA, sometimes all it takes is a single roll of the dice to turn your luck around. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a ruthless Belgian bombardier looking to recapture his form in Cage Warriors loaded lightweight ranks A professional since November 2012 and representing Red Kings, Donovan Desmae holds a 11-5 record in 16 career bouts as a professional comprised of five knockouts, two submissions and four decisions.
In his MMA debut, he defeated Dominique Nielsen via TKO in the first round. Desmae defeated his next two opponents in Marc Becker and Florian Rousseau. Then at Shooto Kings 3 Sharktank, he submitted Igor Montes in the first round via rear naked choke. Desmae scored wins over his next two opponents in Jamie Serradilla Gregorio and Michael Ovsjannikov. At Octagon Fighting Club 13, he defeated France’s Mehdi Meziri via split decision. Desmae defeated Serbia’s Slobodan Maksimovic via TKO in the first round at SHC 11. He tapped out France’s Cosmin Tutu in round one via guillotine choke.
For his second outing with Cage Warriors at Cage Warriors 89, Desmae took on English submission specialist Aiden Lee in his home nation of Belgium and defeated him via unanimous decision. In his next appearance with Cage Warriors 91, he travelled into hostile territory to face another submission specialist in Richard Williams and defeated him via TKO in the first round to earn his fifth knockout victory as a professional and secured back to back wins under the Cage Warriors banner. At 11-5 and having a polished set of skills to go along with his 16 bouts as a professional, it would strongly be advised not to test your luck when squaring off against this European high roller!
