Oktagon MMA is becoming much more of a worldwide force with additions like Oktagon Challenge and their expansion into the United Kingdom. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will be introduced to a Vulcan viper of fire ready to inflict maximum burn at lightweight for the promotion. A professional mixed martial artist since July 2017 and representing Next Generation Liverpool, Shem Rock owns an 8-1-1 record in nine bouts comprised of six submissions, two knockouts, and a draw. Rock has fought for numerous organizations during his time in the professional ranks including Contenders and Full Contact Contender. He has finished all eight of his victories with 100 percent of those wins coming inside the distance. Rock has never gone to the scorecards at any point over the course of his career as a professional MMA fighter. The majority of Rock’s finishes during his pro career have been within two rounds. In his MMA debut at Golden Warriors FC Night of Warriors, he submitted Joshua Khiew via armbar in the first round. Rock also tapped out his next three opponents that included wins over Rocky Lee and Ernest Tang. Then at Probellum MMA Dubai, he defeated Hassan Mandour via technical knockout in round two. Rock submitted Neil Ward in the first round at Clan Wars 39 elite series 1. He defeated Harry Davies in round one at Contenders 33 to earn his second knockout win as a professional.
In the main event of Full Contact Contender 32, Rock submitted Mike Thompson in the first round via rear-naked choke. The win earned Rock the sixth submission victory of his professional career in addition to his eighth pro win overall. No matter where he is on the global map, Rock is a prospect that shows nothing is really set in stone when it comes to the call of a battle cry!
