BRACE 27 Results

BRACE’s string of multi-divisional championship tournaments continued with BRACE 27 on Saturday night, at the Canberra Australian Institute of Sport Arena in Canberra, Australia.

Only two fights on the running order went to a decision, with the rest ending in the first stanza.

The event was headlined by a Welterweight tilt between Canberra’s own Ali Kocak and Sydney’s Regan Wilson. Wilson had things going his way early and eventually scored a successful Rear-Naked Choke submission, after rocking his Aussie counterpart. With the victory, Wilson joined highly touted prospect Steve Micallef in the next round of the tourney.

In the co-main event, Abel Brites got back in the win column and needed only 26 seconds to dispatch Canada’s Kevin Manderson. Manderson shot in for a takedown but Brites anticipated it well, and countered with an Armbar for a tap.

Elsewhere on the card, Light Heavyweights took the spotlight as Mike Turner advanced to the next round with a Unanimous Decision triumph over Australian Top Team’s Sam Kei. In a battle of Bantamweights, AFC veteran Jordan Lucas kept his record unscathed by topping Ireland’s Ritchie Ivory with a lopsided decision victory.

The next round of tourney match-ups are expected to commence on August 8 & 9 at the Norths Leagues Club in New South Wales, as part of BRACE’s traditional numbered events.
