Josh Della will headline a card for the first time in his kingdom. He has stepped up against tough veteran Brandon Ropati from Australian Top Team(ATT). Brandon Ropati has fought a who’s who of world MMA and is a big step up in competition for the self proclaimed King of Perth. Two big guys that come to scrap will always be a spectacle for the raucous Perth crowd.
Next Generation gym leader Marcus Mckeever will face his stiffest test to date with a battle against Josh Togo of ATT. Both men are undefeated in their young mma careers and this may be an old school battle of grappler, Mckeever, vs striker, Togo. It’s an age old MMA question but who wins the striker or the grappler. Sept 16th we will find out.
Another hot prospect coming out of Next Generation in Mandurah is Anthony Drilich. After a stellar performance of all around MMA ability last Eternal he will be looking to continue his winning ways against The Shark, Mark Familari. It’s no secret Familari likes to stand and trade and his team (MMA 24/7) have thrown down the gauntlet to the Next Gen boys, will you stand with me? Drilich is no slouch on the feet and we are set for another barn burner here.
The card seems to be dominated by strikers and an exciting night is definitely on the cards. We also have matched 2 of Perth’s best grapplers who are dipping their toes in the MMA waters, who will win the battle of the grapplers. My money is on it being a stand up fight for the whole 3 rounds.
Pablo Torrealba VS George KanuAs always some of Perth’s finest up and coming talent will grace this 13 fight card and there will be plenty of fighters looking to get on the radar and make a name for themselves.
If you have never experienced an Eternal MMA event at the WA Italian Club then you have missed out on one of Perth's very best nights out.
