Talk about highs and lows. Steve Cantwell became a world champion at just 21 years of age in 2008, but went winless in 2009. So as he prepares for a new year and a bout against respected veteran Vladimir Matyushenko on January 2nd at UFC 108, the young light heavyweight admits to having struggled with the ups and downs of these past two years.

In August of 2008, Cantwell scored a dramatic second round TKO win over Brian Stann. The victory not only avenged a prior KO loss to Stann but it also earned Cantwell the WEC 205-lb title belt.
