On October 20, Kellen VanCamp will face his toughest test to date in his young professional career as he takes on University of Iowa wrestling standout, Edwin Cooper.
After a perfect amateur career (10-0), VanCamp sports a professional record of 1-1 and fights out of Team Hyten MMA in Crawfordsville, IN.
He got started in combat sports at an early age where he and his brothers had been wrestling for as long as they could remember. In fact, he was a state runner up in 2015. Both of his brothers made the transition to MMA after high school and he did the same.
On October 20, he will welcome Edwin Cooper to the professional ranks and when asked about his upcoming bout and opponent, here is what he had to say:
“Edwin Cooper has a good wrestling background and comes from a respectable gym, but I’ve competed against guys like him my whole life. There are two types of wrestlers in the fight game; one who is willing to stand and only uses his wrestling as he has to, and the other one just wants to use his wrestling skills and go to the ground. After we stand up, he’ll be desperately trying to get the fight to the ground and you’ll see which type he is. I’m comfortable everywhere and look forward to displaying my skills against him whether it be a stand up fight or wrestling dominated fight, either is fine with me.”
Not many people want to fight someone with the wrestling pedigree of Edwin Cooper. It would take someone who is used to the grind with mental toughness to take on this task. Someone like Kellen VanCamp! Get your tickets now!
