Brentin Mumford will take on Sam Kitchener in the main event of Carnage in the Cage 5 this Saturday night at the Mackay Entertainment & Convention Centre.
The lightweight fight headlines a twelve fight fight card comprising of A-Class and B-Class bouts.
Mumford was recently awarded his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu purple belt and returns to the cage for the first time since October 2014. There the Lismore based fighter lost a unanimous points decision to Alex MacDonald to make it two losses on a trot after an earlier inadvertent disqualification.
Sam Kitchener will be hoping to make it four wins from four appearances inside the Carnage in the Cage promotion, however he too comes into the fight on the back of a loss following a TKO defeat to Aidan Aguilera in July at Hex Fight Series 3.
Kim Smith comes into his bout on the back of an impressive head-kick knock-out at Fightworld Cup last month. He meets Gamebred Combat Club trained Chris Hay in a lightweight bout while youngster Taela Kelly faces Tasmanian based David Simmons.
Also in A-Class bouts scheduled, Keohu Smith and Anthony Johns will lock horns in middleweight bout and in a bantamweight fight Tahiwi Sellars-McGee meets Byron Cowell.
Carnage in the Cage 5 will be streamed live via Go Fight Live.
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.
