This weekend’s Brisbane Ultimate Fighting Championship has been packed with exciting bouts and a stellar night of MMA. Fans were treated to a spectacular night of finishing and chokes, as former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir was knocked out in the first round by Mark Hunt. Hunt did not jump on Mir to ensure that his hand was raised, and he was able to walk off the mat, having scored a TKO victory.
The UFC is a growing sport with a rapidly-growing fan base, which will bring a younger market segment to Brisbane. The sport is broadcast to over 800 million television sets around the world, allowing for free publicity. A UFC event will be the largest in Australia, and it will be the largest in the country. Brisbane is now in line for the UFC’s biggest event yet, and the city will get to showcase its new face to the world.
The UFC Fight Night Brisbane event will feature Australian talent. Australia has an ongoing battle with Samoa for the right to claim Mark Hunt, and that rivalry will be on display in Brisbane this weekend. Meanwhile, six Australians will be battling it out in the octagon at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. In addition to the rising star of Dylan Andrews, Australians will be able to enjoy other top-tier fighters and MMA in Brisbane.
Mir and Hunt are the two top prospects on the bill. The former has a dominant record, with nine wins by submission. While Mir is known for his walk-off KOs, Hunt is known for his striking prowess and submission power. Mir and Hunt are sure to be an exciting main event. A stacked lineup of fights will make for a memorable night at the Brisbane UFC. So, don’t miss out on this weekend’s fight card! The Brisbane UFC is sure to deliver a thrilling evening of MMA.
Bec Rawlings is set to make her long-awaited return to the octagon at Brisbane UFC. Rawlings previously talked to Fairfax Media about her upcoming fight, saying she is “looking forward to a break” after UFC Brisbane. Bec is still aiming to make it into the top 15 of the strawweight division. This could be the start of something great for her in the women’s flyweight division.
Brendan O’Reilly is also a popular choice for fans. The former TUF Nations competitor is coming off a huge victory over Vik Grujic. In the main event, he’ll look to continue his winning streak by defeating Alan Jouban. Jouban is a part-time model who is known for his explosive fighting style. He’ll prove to be a tough opponent for the hometown hero.
