On Friday night, Maximum Fighting Championship announced the addition of Canadian lightweight Shane “Shaolin” Campbell. The promotion announced that Campbell has signed a multi-fight agreement with the promotion and he will be making his MFC debut on May 9 at MFC 40: Crowned Kings.
The event will take place at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta.
“I want to get in there and bang it out. When I start KOing people, my title shot will come,” said Campbell (8-2), via the official press release.
“People love coming to see me fight because I’m so dynamic. I’m not afraid to do things like wild strikes but I also put my technique together. I can do things that most people can’t. Fans expect to see a KO when I fight and that’s 90% of the fans want to see. They want a huge KO and they’re excited about seeing it happen.
“Every time I fight my fanbase grows all over the world.”
Campbell’s opponent for his promotion has yet to be named, but MFC says the opponent will be announced shortly.
As for Campbell’s state of mind, it doesn’t appear that the name of his opponent will matter because he is just ready to step into the ring and prove that he belongs with the best in the world.
This is a beautiful time and opportunity to be a pioneer,” said Campbell. “I’ve got this opportunity to do things people have never seen before. Something like the Teep kick to the face. I and lots of other people did that long before Anderson Silva did it but no one of his stature had ever done it.
“There are dozens of big things that I want to do. I want to be a trendsetter and this my time and the stage to do it.”
