Brentin Mumford secured his second straight victory on Saturday night, this time knocking out Greg Atzori at Eternal MMA 26 last night which was branded as World Series of Fighting – Global Championship 6.
The lightweight bout headlined the card, which took place at Southport Sharks AFL Club and was streamed live via online pay-per-view.
Mumford came into the contest fresh off a stoppage against former UFC fighter Ben Wall in March and made his case for a title shot in the lightweight division, with a highlight reel finish against Atzori. Mumford perfectly timed a spinning heel kick that knocked his opponent off his feet. He followed that up with a lone punch before the referee intervened.
The win came 1:55 into the bout as Mumford puts himself clearly in line to face current Eternal lightweight champion Callan Potter.

In a super-fight between respective Reign Fighting and Eternal title holders, it would be the Reign champion, Jack Della, who would unify the titles stopping Ty Duncan with strikes early in the second round.
After losing his first two professional bouts, Jack Della has since won three on the trot with the latest win being his biggest to date.
Also on the card, Justin Van Heerden secured a first-round rear-naked choke in his professional debut against Aaron Fisher while Glen Pettigrew locked up a modified arm-lock submission in the second-round against Brandt Cogill.

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.
