NEW MMA CHAMPIONS!!!
2 Mach1 fighters returned to Perth last night as MMA Champions!
These undefeated fighters, Frank Jankowski and Courtney Martin travelled to Melbourne over the weekend to compete for the Path To Hex Championship Belts and both came away Victorious!
Courtney Martin was up first against Lisa Kyriacou for the Flyweight Female Championship Belt.
Courtney had fought Lisa previously on the Eternal fight show with Courtney winning via referee stoppage from strikes in the second round.
Over the weekend they fought again but this time a 5 round title bout. Courtney pushed the action and Lisa with more of a counter strike game plan. Courtney kept the centre of the ring and backed her opponent against the fence utilising pressure and control to land knees against the cage. Lisa managed to secure a couple of takedowns but was unable to land any damaging shots and with Courtney securing a number of submission attempts.
After 5 rounds of action Courtney’s pressure and work rate was too much and she won via judges decision becoming the New Flyweight Champion!
Frank Jankowski was up next against the current Champion Troy Fumo.
Frank pushed forward fast from the start and went after Troy landing strikes via punches, head kicks and low kicks. Troy secured a strong takedown to side control but Frank exploded out of the position and landed shots from the top. Frank stood back as did his opponent and Frank went after him again with strikes causing the referee to stop the fight via TKO 2 mins into round 1.
Frank became the New Flyweight Champion!
Both fighters showed massive improvements in their fights and look forward to seeing them compete again soon!!!!
