Horror Night For The Aussie Fighters At UFC Adelaide


Horror Night For The Aussie Fighters At UFC Adelaide

It's been a horror night for the Aussie contingent of UFC fighters at the Adelaide Fight Night. 

In the main-event, a somewhat early stoppage from the referee saw Heavyweight Tai Tuivasa lose to former UFC Champion Junior dos Santos. 

Tuivasa controlled the first round but was caught in an exchange early in the second. 

dos Santos pounced and finished the contest with some tough ground and pound. 


However, Tuivasa looks to have already set up his next fight with American Justin Willis after the two were got into an altercation backstage at the weigh-ins on Friday night. 


It wasn’t a good night for Tuivasa’s fellow Australians either.

Jake Matthews was submitted in the third-round, Tyson Pedro lost via TKO to MMA legend Shogun Rua.

And in his final fight for the UFC, Mark Hunt was unable to defeat Willis.
