Cage Warriors has long been considered the top of the class as far as European MMA promotions are concerned. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet an anaconda of envious doom and misery ready to rear back his shadowy fangs from the depths of the dark in the promotion’s return to the BEC Arena at Cage Warriors 135 on April 1. A professional mixed martial artist since September 2017 and representing SBG Manchester, Steven Hooper owns a 5-4 record through nine professional bouts comprised of four submissions and one decision. Hooper has fought for several promotions over the course of his career as a pro-MMA fighter thus far including Cage Warriors. He is currently 2-2 under the Cage Warriors banner, with two finishes under his belt for the promotion. Hooper has finished four out of his five victories during his time in the professional ranks. He has gone to the scorecards a single time during his pro career, sweeping them clean across the board in that one and only instance. All four of Hooper’s finishes have come inside the distance.
