Brisbane, London cards get new fights

 

Fight fans in London and Brisbane will be treated to several interesting matchups shortly, as bouts on both cards have been recently made official.

On February 27 at London's O2 Arena, hometown hero Brad Pickett has had a change of opponents, as Mexico's Henry Briones has been forced out of the bout due to injury. Stepping in for what may be an even more explosive matchup is 135-pound knockout artist Francisco Rivera.

The UFC's return to Brisbane on March 19 will see Australia's own "Rowdy" Bec Rawlings fight in her home country for the second consecutive time when she faces South Korean MMA pioneer Seohee Ham.

Plus, fans "Down Under" will be treated to an intriguing lightweight showdown between local favorite Jake Matthews and Johnny Case, while "Filthy" Rich Walsh attempts to keep his Aussie followers happy when he battles Brazil's Viscardi Andrade in a welterweight bout.
