Shane Campbell recently beat Frenchman Remy Bonnel by unanimous decision at “Lion Fight 8″ in Las Vegas, NV. He did a good job of dismantling Bonnel who had blood coming out of his ear during the end of the fight. Campbell has had both a successful career in both Muay Thai and MMA.

If you are not familiar with Shane Campbell and the Journey Fight Series Promotion you can check out their Youtube channel where they have several videos from their past fights. I recently watched Shane Campbell’s quarter final matchup in this tournament vs Nate Chambers. Campbell scored a first round knockout landing a flurry of punches.
The undercard will feature several female fights with Jessica “Thumper” Gladstone, Melissa Reaume, Shauna Flynn, Janice “The Beast” MacAulay and Kelsey Andries.
