Chris “Kewlbonez” Morris was unsuccessful in his challenge for the Rebel Fighting Championship bantamweight title.
The event took place in Shenzhen, China last night.
It was the first time the Southside MMA product had fought internationally and he went the full distance before losing via judges decision to Chinese prospect Jumayi Ayideng.
Morris now turns his attention to Nitro MMA later this month where he meets Shannon Ross for the promotion’s bantamweight title before challenging Mitch Martin for the Eternal bantamweight title next month.
With the win, the 25-year-old Chinese fighter takes his record to 17-3-1, having lost only once in his last 17 bouts.
Started Martial Arts training after watching Mr Miyagi and Daniel-son in Karate Kid back in 1987. By the time MMA arrived many years later, I was hooked. Coverage of local MMA was via scarce posts on forums like the Underground and Sherdog. I embarked on covering the sport in 2002 and since then have written thousands of articles for both print and online media, before branching out and starting Fight News Australia in 2010. Outside the site, I dream of riding in an F1 car.
