Matt Clempner Signs Historic Multi-Fight Deal With M-1 Global
History was made earlier today when light heavyweight Matt Clempner became the first British fighter ever to sign a multi-fight deal with Russian promotion M-1 Global.
Clempner (2-0), 32-years-old, made his professional debut in October 2016 when he defeated Polish fighter Andrej Bochorz at UK Fighting Championships 2 via a first round submission.
He then followed up that win with another first round submission victory over IMMAF European gold medallist Ben Forsyth at BAMMA 30 last July.

With the building blocks of a solid career now under him and with instrumental work of Ian Freeman, Clempner has now signed a 6 fight deal with M-1 Global and will debut in China on May 12.
Before turning professional in MMA, Clempner won accolades in several disciplines of martial arts including becoming a Sambo World Champion and a Judo Commonwealth medallist. The HD Fight Management man now has the opportunity of a lifetime to make a big impact in Russia and capture further honours.
M-1 Global was founded in 1997 and is headquartered in St. Petersburg, Russia. The public faces of M-1 Global are President, Vadim Finkelstein and the man who many consider to be one of the greatest MMA fighters of al, Fedor Emelianenko who is also a part owner in the organization.
