Martin Stapleton

Another new Bellator MMA signing whom I shot last week is Martin Stapleton. First time I’ve done portraits of Martin but photographed him many times at The Olympia fighting (including his mega win in the Cage Contender 8 man knockout competition just before Christmas).

Martin started his MMA career in 2007 and stopped in 2009 for work in the Royal Marines for three years before returning to the MMA stage last year.

Good luck to him in the US with the Bellator series.

Paul Sass

I’ve photographed Paul on several occassions and it was great to catch up with him on Saturday just prior to The Specials gig at The Olympia. Paul has just been signed for Californian based Bellator MMA (who are the biggest MMA tournament organisation in the world).

We had a retake mid week for a slightly different look and I’ll publish them soon with Martin Stapleton also in them from the Saturday night but this was worth a view on the blog.
