Mumford vs Atzori; Della vs Duncan headlines WSOF-GC 6 Saturday night

The Eternal promotion hosts World Series of Fighting – Global Championship 6 tomorrow night with a lightweight bout between Brentin Mumford and Greg Atzori headlining the card taking place at the Southport Sharks AFL Club on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Mumford comes into the contest fresh off a quality stoppage against former UFC fighter Ben Wall earlier this year while Atzori returns from a short break since winning a unanimous decision versus Ethan Duniam in October last year.

A co-headline superfight will pit Eternal welterweight champion Ty Duncan against Reign champion Jack Della in what is touted as a title unification bout. Both fighters claimed their respective titles earlier in the year, Duncan submitting Tristan Murphy at Eternal 24 while Della stopping Glen Pettigrew at Reign Fighting 3.

Also on the card, Justin Van Heerden makes his professional debut as he meets Aaron Fisher while Glen Pettigrew battles Brandt Cogill.

There has been a late scratching from the card with amateur fighter Craig Booth collapsing while cutting weight for his bout. The Toowoomba based fighter was reportedly rushed to a local hospital in a critical condition with no further update given at this time.

The WSOF Global brand is an independently owned and managed company which focuses on the WSOF brand outside of the United States. Australian promotion Eternal MMA and Reign Fighting joined the network last year.

Eternal MMA 24: Ty Duncan claims title; Brentin Mumford knocks out Ben Wall

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 or a Jet Fighter. Anyone have a spare one lying around?
