BRACE 23 Weigh In results: Manderson, Turkyilmaz set for main event

On Saturday, BRACE will stage its 23rd installment at the Townsville Entertainment & Convention Centre situated in Townsville, Queensland, Australia.

All fighters took to the scales on Friday, and are greenlit for tomorrow’s exciting event.

The featured bout of the evening features Gokhan Turkyilmaz and Canadian Kevin Manderson in an intriguing 155-lbs tilt. Both fighters are established veterans at this stage of their careers, although it’ll be interesting to see the changes in Turkyilmaz’s style, if any, given his move to Phuket Top Team recently.

In an other wise Australian-talent filled card, El Salvador’s Edwin Arana (5-6) vs. England’s Zack Hook (2-4) is the only match-up on the line-up without an Aussie involved. Both fighters, though, are based in the country. While Hume looks for his second victory on the trot following five consecutive losses, “El Bomba” Edwin Arana will be looking to snap his current three-fight losing skid.

BRACE 23 is set to stream LIVE on an online pay-per-view at AUD $14.99. For timings, visit
