Marthin Hamlet, 28, of Norway has joined the Professional Fighters League. The Norwegian mixed martial artist will make his PFL debut in 2021.
Hamlet stands 6’1″ and fights in the light heavyweight division. He is training at Frontline Academy in Oslo, Norway with his fellow Norwegian MMA fighter Jack “The Joker” Hermansson, 32, who competes in the middleweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Born in Åsgårdstrand, Norway on January 17, 1992, Hamlet has been competing professionally since 2017. Before joining the PFL, he competed in Superior Challenge and Cage Warriors Fighting Championship.
In Hamlet’s most recent bout, which was at “Superior Challenge 20” on December 7, 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden, he won via unanimous decision against Prince Aounallah of France. It improved the Norwegian MMA fighter’s professional MMA record to 6 wins and 1 loss.
