2015 Champions

BRACE 2015 TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS

FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPION – JAMIE MULLARKEY

All hail the King! Central Coasts’ Jamie Mullarkey created history winning back to back titles in the Featherweight Division. With an undefeated 9-0 record Mullarkey has finished 8 opponents inside the distance, 6 of those inside the very first round. In round 1 action Mullarkey weathered an early onslaught from Stef Rosa before submitting him with a Rear Naked Choke late in the first round. In semi-final action he again finished in round one, knocking tough Tasmanian David Simmons out cold. The Magnus Martial Arts protégé showcased all his skills against a gritty Greg Criticos in the Tournament Final slowing down Criticos with crisp striking before sinking in a Rear Naked Choke in Round 2. Still only 21 years old the skies the limit for Jamie Mullarkey.

WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION – BEN ALLOWAY

Benny ‘Blanco’ Alloway is a name that is synonymous with Australian Mixed Martial Arts. The UFC veteran and former Ultimate Fighter Smashes Competitor pulled off an impressive second round submission victory against powerhouse Rick ‘The Alchemist’ Alchin to set up his 2015 Title shot. Coming up against undefeated Theo Christakos Alloway highlighted his well-rounded skill set to first break down his opponent in a gruelling encounter before finishing to claim a TKO victory and the title. The BRACE 2015 Welterweight Title caps off an impressive 2015 for the Gold Coast based fighter and adds to his impressive record of 16 wins with 13 finishes.

LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION – DAMIEN BROWN

A veteran of 20 fights Damien ‘Beatdown’ Brown has fought the who’s who of Australian MMA. With a wealth of international level fight experience the well-rounded Brisbane Native certainly had all the credentials to take home the 2015 Championship title. With a string of knock out victories coupled with an impressive submission game, Brown had the Lightweight Division on notice. Even more so after tapping out the BRACE 2014 Lightweight Champion Abel Brites in just 17 seconds. Undefeated Ben Games was all that stood between Brown and the title and the championship final was a heart stopping back and forth battle of epic proportions. Brown ended 2015 undefeated as he sunk in the Rear Naked Choke late in Round 2 to claim victory.
