The Welshman secures UKFC amateur lightweight belt with first round stoppage.

Williams was in ruthless form when he defeated Brandon Elwell of Doncaster to win the UKFC amateur lightweight belt on a 23-bout show at the Guild Hall in Preston.

The pair met in a contest scheduled for five three-minute rounds with ISKA champion Elwell expected to give the Welshman a hard night. However, Williams won via submission at 1:30 of the first round. It was his 10th victory in 20 bouts, having been a Mixed Martial Arts competitor for four years.

The Pwllheli man explained how he won the fight: “The fight went ahead with my dominating the striking standing. I took my opponent to the floor via a double leg takedown.

“Here I landed strikes which in turn forced him to give up his back which resulted in me submitting him via a rear naked choke.”
Williams represents one of the biggest fight teams in the UK named HAMMA, which is based in St Helens, Merseyside.
He is coached there by Sean Martin, while his MMA coach is Andy DeVent.

After his title win, Williams said the next plan is to defend his belt in June before looking to make an impact on the international stage.
In the cage, Williams is a relentless fighting machine, but away from the action he is as humble as they come.

In the post-fight interview following his title win, the Pwllheli man stressed how highly he rates his coaching team and appreciates the support he receives.

While having his feet firmly on the ground, he also possesses a quiet determination to be the best and judging by his flawless performance against Elwell there is a lot more success to come for this down-to-earth lad from the Llyn.
