You know when a promotion has more title fights on a card than events it’s put on that it means business. Four title fights at the Mansfield Tavern on April 8th with 3 current or former Aussie MMA champions caps off a stellar card of meticulous MMA match making. If you haven’t made plans to attend, here’s four reasons why this show is NOT to be missed.
MAIN EVENT - WELTERWEIGHT TITLE FIGHT
GLEN PETTIGREW VS JACK DELLA
Eight fight veteran and stalwart of the south-east Queensland MMA scene, Glen Pettigrew, takes on Jack Della coming fresh of an absolute striking clinic and TKO victory on Eternal MMA 20. These boys are young and promising talents vying for the very first Reign welterweight title that will afford them the opportunity to boost their profile and catapult them into the upper echelon of Australian MMA.
BANTAMWEIGHT TILE FIGHT
CHRIS ‘KEWLBONEZ’ MORRIS VS CALLUM LEWIS
After winning the first ever bantamweight championship in devastating KO fashion and solidifying his hold on the Australian bantamweight division in a submission victory on Eternal MMA 22, Kewlbonez returns to defend his Reign title against battle tested Eternal title challenger Callum Lewis. Lewis is a 14-fight veteran and former domestic champion that will meet Morris head on with a grinding and unrelenting game that Morris himself has often employed. Look for a full spectrum of MMA action as both boys will throw everything in the toolbox at one another to brandish the Reign strap.
ETERNAL FLYWEIGHT TITLE FIGHT
TIM ‘QUICKDRAW’ MOORE VS SEAN GAUCI
After clearing out all immediate Eternal challengers to his flyweight title, Tim Moore ventures to Reign in a cross promotional title fight with young upstart, and provider of fight ending strikes, Sean Gauci.
Moore has ventured internationally as part of Eternal and Reign’s promotional allegiance with WSOF Global and came back from it stronger than ever. Sean Gauci has something the flyweights are often criticized for being bereft of, incredible fight ending knockout power. This title fight will answer whether Quickdraw will break the bronco, or if there’s indeed a new sheriff in town.
REIGN FEATHERWEIGHT DIVISION
The Reign featherweight division welcomes two Eternal favourites, Garret Gross, former Eternal Featherweight Champion, from Shindo New Breed on the Gold Coast and Ryan Gray from Perth Western Australia's The MMA Clinic.
Gross (6-3-1) and Gray (6-3) on paper is a great match with both fighters having similar records as well as being extremely technical fighters. Both fighters are looking to get a win to get back in the hunt for Myles Simpsons Eternal Australian Featherweight Title and avenge there loss to him in style.
