Ben Wall, Simon Carson victorious at Battlefield FC 2; Alex Muir loses

Australians Ben Wall and Simon Carson both scored victories on last weekend’s Battlefield FC 2 card however Alexander Muir went down in her international debut.

The event took place in Sheraton Grand Macau hotel in Macau on Saturday night.

For Wall, it was arguably his biggest win since being released by the UFC back in 2014. He won a single bout in his next five but has bounced back in recent times with a win over Greg Atzori and now against 41-year-old Muhsin Corbbrey. Wall dominated the bout to take a unanimous decision against the 18-year fight veteran.

On the topic of veterans, Absolute MMA trained light-heavyweight Simon Carson finished 145-fight veteran Shannon “The Cannon” Ritch inside the first round with strikes. With the win, Carson moves to 2-1 as a pro while Cannon drops to 57-88.

The opening fight of the night featured a women’s bantamweight bout with Southside MMA trained Alexander Muir being stopped in the third round by Chinese fighter Xiaoou Liu.

The main event featured former UFC veteran Gleison Tibau taking on former Bellator champion Will Brooks and it would be the Brazilian who walk away with the win as Tibau submitted Brooks with a first-round guillotine choke.

Unfortunately, most of the news immediately out of the event again was the promotions failure to pay the fighters straight away with The Fight Nation reporting that fighters were to receive their pay during the week.

Fight News Australia has reached out to fighters to confirm this.
