A victory over the Italian Martignoni would give Wooding a second title defense at 135 pounds following his first defense at Cage Warriors 132. The Brit is a perfect 3-0 since coming to Cage Warriors from Bellator with three knockouts. The London native’s power is his calling card as all nine of his wins have come by way of knockout or technical knockout with five wins in the first round. Wooding is as explosive as any bantamweight fighter in Europe, and the power he displays at 135 could play in the UFC, particularly if he is able to score another dominant victory on Friday.
However, Wooding is also 0-3 when fights reach the judges’ scorecards. Martignoni, meanwhile, has won by decision at least twice in his 10-fight career with both wins coming in Cage Warriors where he holds a 2-1-1 record. The Italian, who stands at 5-foot-9, will be able to measure up to the champion from a physical standpoint as both fighters are big for the weight class. The two sides to Friday’s main event do share a common Cage Warriors opponent, however, in Nathan Fletcher. While Wooding knocked Fletcher out in dramatic fashion late in the third round of their bantamweight title fight at Cage Warriors 127, Martignoni fell in the third round of their fight, succumbing to a rear-naked choke at Cage Warriors 122.
