The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) moved to Sydney, Australia on Saturday, Nov. 18, for the mixed martial arts promotion’s most recent fight card. This time, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night 121 for the Sydney Crowd inside the Qudos Bank Arena.
During the night’s event, Australia’s own Bec Rawlings faced off in her flyweight debut. The fighter was initially set to throw down with Joanne Calderwood, but Calderwood was pulled from the event after suffering an injury.
As a result, Rawlings was awarded a new opponent. In her place, the fighter went toe-to-toe with fellow Australian Jessica-Rose Clark. Clark missed weight for the fight, but still competed on Saturday night.
The two fighters entered an all out war that ended up going the distance. In the end, Clark walked away with a razor thin split decision victory.
Bec Rawlings has now gone to social media to share her thoughts about the unreasonable messages many fighters are inundated with by their haters. Over Twitter, Rawlings’ stated:
“I have collected data & results show that 99.9% of my haters are guys ranged between the age of 14 & 55… go figure #hatingasshoes.”
