After four grueling rounds of punishment, the doctor called a stop to the action after the fourth round. The undefeated champion Kellen VanCamp (10-0) put on a clinic inside the cage for four rounds. VanCamp successfully defended his featherweight title against Jacob Dorman (6-1) in the co-main event at Hardrock MMA 96.
In the first round, VanCamp was able to open up Dorman with a cut under his left eye. As the fight progressed and the damage continued, Dorman’s cheek began to swell. By the time the fourth round ended Dorman’s left cheek was now enlarged to the point that it was hindering his ability to see.
In between the fourth and fifth round, the doctor entered the cage to look over Dorman. As a result of the examination, the doctor had no choice but to call a stop to the fight.
VanCamp kept his unblemished record intact with the stoppage picking up his tenth win as an amateur. During his post-fight interview with Jason Weinel, VanCamp eluded to the crowd at the Paroquet Springs Conference Center in Shepherdsville, Kentucky that he was ready to jump to the professional ranks.
He looked over to his coach, Joe Hyten of Hyten MMA, as he made the statement to see if he had his approval. With ten straight wins dating back to his debut in June 2015, finding another opponent could prove to be a challenge. Taking the step to the professional division could be the only chance he has at competing again.
Kellen VanCamp, Ranked #1 by Tapology in the Midwest lightweight division, is a two promotional, two divisional champion. He currently holds the Hardrock MMA featherweight and Colosseum Combat lightweight titles.
