Back on January 25th of this year at Cage Titans 47 between rounds two and three Johnny “Cupcakes” Campbell (20-12) found himself down probably two rounds and knew he needed a finish of the gritty Jeff Perez (5-2) to secure the W.
Campbell marched forward with bad intentions and with enough pressure and power near the midway point got the TKO finish he was looking for. Not only did “Cupcakes” get the victory that night but it also got the attention of Bellator MMA brass, enough so that Campbell was offered a fight against Leandro Higo (19-5) at Bellator 241 Friday, March 13th at the famed Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Campbell took the fight without hesitation even though it’s a quick turn around Campbell wants to strike while the iron is hot and get a statement win over Higo. “Cupcakes” took time out of his training camp to visit with FightBook MMA Fighter Focus. Hear the full interview below.
