FRESH FROM A SHOEY: UNBEATEN UFC RISING STAR TAI TUIVASA JOINS UFC FIGHT NIGHT

PhilBoxing.com


SINGAPORE: COWBOY VS EDWARDS PRESENTED BY AIRASIA

UFC®, the world’s premier Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) organisation, today announced that no. 12 ranked heavyweight and rising star Tai “Bam Bam” Tuivasa (10-0, fighting out of Western Sydney, Australia) will be coming to Singapore for UFC® FIGHT NIGHT SINGAPORE: COWBOY VS EDWARDS presented by AirAsia, taking place on Saturday, June 23, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.


Fresh from a unanimous decision victory against former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski at UFC 225, the up-and-coming, undefeated 25-year-old is one of the most exciting heavyweights in the UFC. Former National Rugby League star turned MMA fighter, Tuivasa made his UFC debut in November and has since established himself as one of Australia’s brightest MMA prospects. He is currently undefeated, boasting dominant, first round wins over Rashad Coulter and Cyril Asker.

Ahead of supporting Australian star and brother-in-law, Tyson Pedro, who will face No. 8-ranked knockout-ace Ovince Saint Preux’s in a light heavyweight showdown, Tuivasa will participate in a series of community and fan engagement activities throughout Fight Week.

Other bouts on the card include the highly anticipated main event between veteran Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and No. 14-ranked rising British star Leon ‘Rocky’ Edwards. A win from Cowboy will see him overtake Michael Bisping and George St Pierre to hold the record of most-ever wins in the UFC.

Updated fight card can be found here:

• No. 11-ranked Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone (33-10-0, fighting out of Albuquerque, New Mexico) will face No. 14 ranked rising British star, Leon 'Rocky' Edwards (14-3, fighting out of Birmingham, England) in the Welterweight headliner

• No. 8-ranked knockout-ace Ovince Saint Preux (22-11, fighting out of Knoxville, Tennessee, USA) will face rising Australian star Tyson Pedro (7-1, fighting out of Sydney, Australia) in a light heavyweight showdown

• Powerful Japanese striker Shinsho Anzai (10-2, fighting out of Tokyo, Japan) will face “The Celtic Kid” Jake Matthews (13-3, fighting out of Epping, Victoria, Australia) who is looking to build on his 2-fight winning streak in the welterweight division

• No. 9-ranked women’s flyweight Jessica Rose Clark (8-4, fighting out of Innisfail, Australia) is looking to start her UFC career with three wins in a row as she faces no. 10-ranked Jessica Eye (12-6, fighting out of Cleveland, Ohio, USA)

• In a flyweight bout, Jenel Lausa (7-4, fighting out of Manila, Philippines) faces Ashkan Mokhtarian (13-3, fighting out of Wentworthville, Sydney, Australia), with each athlete hungry for a dominant win

• Submission specialist Matt Schnell (11-4, fighting out of Shreveport, Louisiana, USA) takes on 20-year-old undefeated prospect Naoki Inoue (11-0, fighting out of Toyohashi, Japan) in a flyweight match-up

• Viviane Perreira (13-1-0, fighting out of Fortaleza, Ceara Brazil) will be looking for a bounce-back win over Chinese striker Yan Xiaonan (8-1, fighting out of Beijing, China)

• China’s biggest MMA star and welterweight prospect Li “Leech” Jingliang (14-5, fighting out of Beijing, China) will return to Singapore to face Japan’s Judo specialist, Daichi Abe (6-1, fighting out of Tokyo, Japan)

• Up and coming Chinese prospect Song Yadong (10-3-0, 2NC fighting out of Heilongjiang, China) will make his bantamweight debut in a showdown against Felipe ‘Sertanejo’ Arantes (18-9-1, 2NC, fighting out of Sao Paulo, Brazil)

• Rapid striker Song ‘The Assassin’ Kenan (13-4-0, fighting out of Tangshan, Hebei, China) will look to secure his second consecutive welterweight win against UFC debutant and The Ultimate Fighter Latin America contender Héctor Aldana (4-1, fighting out of Mexico) in the Octagon®

• Dynamic athlete Teruto ‘Yashabo’ Ishihara (11-5-2, fighting out of Osaka, Japan) will continue his bantamweight pursuit in a bout against UFC debutant and bright Russian prospect, Petr ‘No Mercy’ Yan (8-1, fighting out of Omsk, Russia).

• Korean striker Ji 'Fire Fist' Yeon-Kim (7-1-2, fighting out of Incheon, South Korea) will face off against Melinda Fabian (4-3-2, fighting out of Budapest, Hungary) in a women's flyweight showdown
