In recent years the Australian bantamweight scene has been buzzing with a deep talented fighter pool full of competitive and interesting match ups. Eternal have been at the forefront of developing this division as our earlier cards concentrated on building the smaller (and some say more exciting) weight divisions. This culminated in our first two bantamweight champions being snapped up by the two biggest MMA organizations on the planet.

After winning the inaugural bantamweight title at Eternal MMA 5 in the Coolangatta Hotel on Saturday May 3rd 2014, Reece McLaren went on to defend his title twice before being snapped up by ONE Championship. The vacant bantamweight title was then contested between Ashkan Mokhtarian and Shannon Ross at Eternal MMA 16 on Saturday April 2nd 2016. The title again became vacant when Ashkan was snapped up by the the worlds premier MMA organisation, the UFC.



Mitch Martin won the vacant bantamweight title back in May 2017 with a TKO victory over the highly regarded Michael Addison in Perth at Eternal MMA 25. Mitch has since defended the belt twice, once against Ty Hogan in a 3 round barn burner on the Gold Coast at Eternal MMA 29 with Mitch getting the win via TKO in the 3rd round. The Perth based champion then travelled east again to defend his belt at Eternal MMA 30 against local favourite Chris "Kewlbonez" Morris and again got his hand raised and the belt wrapped around his waist after a slick triangle submission win inside the first 3 minutes.

MMA pull outs how one boy became a man.

If you are reading this blog then you are probably aware of the rigors of the sport of MMA. If you aren’t then let me assure you that there are few tougher sports in the world to prepare for. By the time ‘real fighters’ reach the cage very few are operating at 100% both mentally and physically. The reason I say ‘real’ fighters is that there seems to be a bunch of ‘facebook’ fighters these days who as soon as they get a profile picture made by the promoter for their social media they all of a sudden get injured or can’t make the date or the dog ate their homework.
