Across the Pond Profile: Cage Warriors fighter Steven Hooper

The fight game is often a series of harsh lessons for up swingers trying to cut their teeth with some having to transition to going into hostile territory to get a victory. In today’s episode ofĀ Across The Pond,Ā you will be introduced to a hard-charging knight looking to slay the Welsh dragon at Cage Warriors 108 on October 12 at the Viola Arena in Cardiff that will air live on UFC Fight Pass. A professional since September 2017 and representing SBG ManchesterĀ underĀ Matt Inman, Steven HooperĀ owns a 4-3 record in seven career bouts as a professional comprised of three submissions and one decision. Hooper has gone on to earn a finish in 75 per cent of his professional wins and has competed with various promotions in Europe including Full Contact Contender, Cage Warriors Almighty FC and Shinobi.

In his MMA debut at Almighty Fighting Championship 6, he submittedĀ Patryk KrzakĀ in the first round via rear-naked choke. Hooper also tapped out Anthony O’ ConnorĀ at Shinobi War 11Ā via triangle choke in the second round. Then in his only appearance with Full Contact Contender at FCC 21, he faced Cage Warriors veteranĀ Ellis HampsonĀ and went on to defeat him via unanimous decision to pick up his sole decision win as a professional thus far.

In his second outing with Cage Warriors at Cage Warriors 105 in the promotion’s second trip to the Charter Hall in Colchester, Hooper faced fellow submission specialist Craig Edwards and managed to tap him out in the second round via triangle choke to earn his first win under the Cage Warriors banner. The victory also earned Hooper the third submission win of his professional career. At Cage Warriors 108 on October 12, he will face rising Welsh starĀ Oban ElliottĀ in a lightweight showdown. Good luck Steven!
