Cain Velasquez out, Hunt in for Interim title shot

October 21, 2014 23:34 by MMA Admin

It looks like fans will have to wait a little longer to see the reigning UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez in action. Velasquez recently sustained a knee injury while training in preparation for his match with Fabricio Werdum.

Given the lengthy absence of Velasquez the UFC has had no choice but to instil an interim Heavyweight belt, and have chosen Mark Hunt to step up against the in-form Werdum.

UFC coming to Brisbane, Australia

September 9, 2013 21:28 by MMA Admin

The UFC announced today that it will be making its first trip to sunny Queensland by hosting HUNT vs BIGFOOT at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on December 7. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, October 10 at 9 a.m. AEST.

Tom Wright, UFC Director of Operations in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada said "Brisbane will represent the third city in Australia where we've hosted an event and we're all very excited to be bringing an amazing card to our fans this December".

Despite his last loss to Junior Dos Santos, Hunt has had an amazing run in the UFC and hopes to defend his reputation against fellow top HeavyWeight contenter Silva who also lost his last fight (to Cain Velasquez).

No doubt the Brisbane Entertainment Centre will be packed for this! 

Congratulations Robert Whittaker

May 28, 2013 18:07 by MMA Admin


We would like to congratulate Aussie Robert Whittaker for his impressive win over Colton Smith.

Colton Smith who was also a winner of his season of the Ultimate Fighter had previously defeated highly regarded Mike Ricci in his finale.

It is safe to say that Robert dominated the fight, and despite his "controversial" strategy to fight with one arm down the risk paid off as he clinched a convincing victory. It was apparent by Colton's bloodied face that despite losing by TKO he was soundly beaten and throughout the fight was unable to enter his comfort zone by taking Whittaker to the ground and holding him down.

This was an impressive win for Robert against a tough opponent and we are excited for his future in the UFC. In general exciting times ahead as fellow Aussie Soa Palelei has been re-signed by the UFC and hopes to redeem his past efforts.
