Swedish former TUF competitor claims submission finish in the main event in Cage Warriors’ return to Wales.

It’s been quite a year for Welsh MMA as former Cage Warriors middleweight champion, Jack Marshman becomes the first Welshman to compete in the UFC’s Octagon in November.

All eyes this weekend were on Newport and the local heroes hoping to follow in his footsteps and they didn’t disappoint – Welsh prospects Jack Shore and Josh Reed continued to shine both maintaining their unblemished records.

However, Saturday night will probably be remembered for Englishman Dean Trueman’s 12 second KO of Arnold Quero – the fastest win of his career.  It took two overhand rights to stun the Frenchman before he hit the canvas.

In the headline tilt, mighty Swede Martin Svensson marked his return to the promotion by putting the skids on Scott Clist’s three-fight winning streak.  The gutsy Englishman edged round one but got caught in a triangle choke just over 90 seconds into the second
