Eternal MMA 29: Potter vs Mumford title fight headlines card

Callan Potter will be looking for his seventh win on the trot this Saturday when he defends his Eternal lightweight title against Brentin Mumford. In the co-main event, Perth’s Mitch Martin will be looking at retaining the Eternal bantamweight title when he faces Tyrell Hogan.

They double up as the feature bouts on Eternal MMA 29 which returns to the Southport Sharks function centre on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Potter (14-6 MMA, 1-0 Eternal) has put himself on the doorstep of a UFC call-up with his last six wins all coming via stoppage. The last three via submission inside the first round against Matiu Thoms, Isaac Tisdell and Abel Brites. The Victorian based fighter will be defending the Eternal lightweight title for the first time since capturing it back in October 2016.

Looking to dethrone him will be Brentin Mumford (9-4 MMA, 2-0 Eternal) who has been one of the standouts in 2017 thus far. Training out of Tiger Muay Thai, Mumford stopped former UFC fighter Ben Wall inside a minute and followed that up with a spectacular stoppage spinning-heel kick over veteran Greg Atzori.

After winning the promotions bantamweight title back in May against Mick Addison, The MMA Clinic trained Mitch Martin returns looking to defend the strap for the first time. Challenging him will be Gamebred MMA youngster Tyrell Hogan whose last outing was a first-round stoppage over Craig Lankester back in June.

Also in a pro bout, Aaron Fisher squares up against Ryan Lambert.

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.
