He is also the last Light Heavyweight Champion in the World Extreme Cagefighting organization.

Born on December 8, 1986 in Los Angeles, California, Cantwell fought for World Extreme Cagefighting, debuting in WEC 26 in 2007. In the first fight, he was defeated by Brian Stann via TKO early in round one.

A few months later, Cantwell turned the tables and this time he won early in round one by TKO in a bout against Justin McElfresh.

His next match was on March 26, 2008 at WEC 29 where he went up against Tim McKenzie. He won via submission by rear naked choke hold.

August 2, 2008 Cantwell rematched with Stann at WEC 35 for the Light Heavyweight Championship title. In the second round Cantwell won by TKO, earning him the championship. Shortly after the fight, the WEC dropped the Light Heavyweight division making Cantwell the final WEC Light Heavyweight title holder.

That same year, Cantwell joined the UFC. His first fight was at UFC: Fight for the Troops on December 10, 2008 in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He faced off with newcomer Razak Al-Hassan.

Four minutes and four seconds into the fight he won by technical submission via armbar after breaking Razak's arm. He won Submission of the Night as well as the fight itself. He was quoted as saying, "I've been waiting so long to do that, you have no idea." Later he apologized for the remark.

At UFC 97, he went up against Brazilian Luiz Cane who defeated him via unanious decision.

His next bout was yet another rematch with Brian Stann at UFC Fight Night 19 on April 18, 2009 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Five minutes into the third round he lost by unanimous decision.
