Whether you’re an MMA fan or not, you’re sure to be familiar with some of the fighters who will be featured in the upcoming Brisbane UFC. From Jake Matthews to Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, these fights are bound to be action packed and entertaining.

Bec Rawlings

Despite a relatively short career in mixed martial arts, Bec Rawlings is a successful fighter. She has won several fights, including the Police Gazette Women’s Featherweight World Championship, and is a member of the Bare Knuckle Boxing Hall of Fame.

She was initially introduced to the sport by her trainer, Dan Hyatt. It was not until she was 22 that she began to compete professionally. Originally, she was scheduled to fight Joanne Calderwood on the undercard of Invicta FC 4: Esparza vs. Gadelha on 5 January 2013.

Bec Rawlings was able to win the fight. She landed a couple of huge punches in the first round. She also threatened with a choke, but it was too much for her opponent. She was then able to control the cage with her clinch work.

Mark Hunt

Among the many fights on UFC Fight Night 85 will be a fight between former UFC heavyweight champion Mark Hunt and American veteran Frank Mir. This will be the second time the UFC has come to the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Hunt’s career began as a kickboxer and progressed into MMA 2004. He went on to win K-1 Oceania Grand Prix in Melbourne and the K-1 World Grand Prix Preliminary Melbourne Champion.

He later competed in the K-1 World Grand Prix in Nagoya and Fukuoka, Japan. He also qualified for the 2002 K-1 World Grand Prix Final.

He won his first six PRIDE fights before losing to Fedor Emelianenko at PRIDE Shockwave 2006. He next fought Cheick Kongo at UFC 144. He fought a late replacement, Melvin Manhoef, after Le Banner pulled out of the event.

Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva

Earlier this week, the UFC announced that the two best heavyweights in the world will compete in the main event of UFC Fight Night 33 in Brisbane, Australia on December 7. The fight between former training partners Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and Mark Hunt will take place on December 7 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Bigfoot is a kickboxer and former EliteXC heavyweight champion who has spent most of his professional career with various organizations. He is decorated with a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt.

The fight between Hunt and Silva will be a good test of their physical capabilities and a great chance to see which one is the better knockout artist. The winner will be awarded $50,000 as a bonus.

The most impressive part of the fight was that both of them refused to give up when the fourth round started. They were still on their feet in the first minute of the fifth round.

Jake Matthews vs Johnny Case

During UFC Fight Night 85 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Australia, Jake Matthews took on Johnny Case. The two lightweights went head to head in a match up that highlighted the talent in the lightweight division.

For the most part, the two combatants traded solid punches and kicks while occasionally mixing up combinations to the body. The final round exhibited a higher level of activity, as both fighters tried to get the other to submit. The end result was a close contest, with the eventual winner getting a slammed rear-naked choke.

The competition is strong, with a number of talented prospects vying for a spot at the top of the division. Although they are all capable of making an impact, the best bet is to establish a clear top position and keep out of the way.

Paddy “The Boddy” Pimblett

Despite being a UFC fighter for only a year, Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett has become a huge name in the fight game. His reputation has expanded beyond the realm of the UFC and into the world of mainstream media.

His outspoken personality has made him a viral star. In fact, a mural in Scotland has been decorated with a copy of his post-fight speech, and Paddy’s name is a regular subject in the media. He has spoken out against the British Royal Family, and has even declared his hatred for the ‘establishment’.

As a result of his rising fame, he has become the subject of some criticism. While he has received positive comments from fans, he has also been called a jerk. His arrogance has been questioned as well, and some of his actions have been misinterpreted.
