Eternal MMA 29: Callan Potter defends Eternal title; submits Brentin Mumford

Victorian lightweight Callan Potter extended his winning streak to seven on Saturday night, submitting Brentin Mumford in the main event of Eternal 29 to defend his Eternal lightweight title.

The event took place at the Southport Sharks AFL club on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Potter took centre of the cage and wouldn’t be long before he would close the distance and press Mumford against the cage. Supported by a vocal crowd, Mumford escaped and immediately began to throw strikes on the outside. Potter nicely timed and completed a double-leg takedown. In the scramble, Potter attempted to take the back and transitioned to the head-arm choke. To release the squeeze, Mumford turned away which allowed Potter to take the back, this time successfully securing the rear-naked choke submission to get the tap.

Not only was it Potter’s seventh win, but also his seventh straight stoppage, with six of them coming by way of submission. He moves to 15-6 while Mumford drops 9-5.

In the co-main event, Mitch Martin remained undefeated as a professional, stopping Gamebred MMA trained Tyrell Hogan in the third round by a TKO. It was the first defense of his Eternal bantamweight title after capturing it in Perth back in May.
