It was announced on infinitemma.com yesterday that local Aussie HW, Brad Morris has signed with the UFC. No news on opponents or which fightcard he'll be featured but will keep you posted when news comes through.
Brad holds a 9 - 2 record with wins over Kristof Midoux at the Bodog - Vancouver and another win over Masayuki Kono at the Warriors Realm 12 held in Sydney at the end of last month.
Interestingly back in 2002, Brad's lost to another MMA debut by the name of Soa Palelei. Check the Youtube link below at around the 2:40 mark (for this fight) and watch him scramble to get out of the armbar. Wasn't the best example by Soa but you got to admit in Brad's first fight, he did give his all.
That will make three Aussie heavy weights that have been signed by Danna in recent years. Perosh, Palelei and now Morris. Ask me and any MMA fan in Aust., we appreciate the support Dana has shown by taking the risk on signing our fighters in the last two years. I know it suits Dana's own purposes with the HW division starting to thin out but still... anyway, good luck Brad.
