The bout headlined Eternal MMA 18 which took place at the WA Italian Club in Perth.
Formerly from the United Kingdom, Bates secured the TKO win with a second remaining in the opening round to take his professional record to 4-0. With the win, the Mach1 trained fighter will get a shot at the promotion’s welterweight strap, which is currently held by Tristan Murphy.
Earlier Dean Abramo needed only 57-seconds to get a TKO win over Stephan Friedrich, while Richard Lockett submitted Ryan Robertson with a triangle choke midway through the first-round.
Stepping up on late notice, and up a weight division proved too much for Ryan Gray as he was stopped by Mach1 trained Nicko Flessas.
