The most notable prospect in action was Adam Machaj (3-0, 3) who scored his third early victory by defeating Imantas Davidaitis (2-5, 2) in just 2 rounds. Machaj might not be a name many are talking about but some are mentioning him on forums as a true "one to watch" and we've got to agree. Machaj is naturally big, tall, strong and powerful and it's those traits that could well take him through the ranks over the next few years.
Another notable prospect was Donovan Dennis (8-0, 7) who scored a very impressive victory over Sam Comming (4-8, 3). Althouugh Comming was never expected to win few would have anticipated a 94 second blow out by Dennis considering that Comming hadn't been stopped in over a decade.
Machaj and Dennis weren't the only unbeaten men in action as Lionel Davis (10-0, 8) took out Jorge Alberto Ramos (2-12, 2) in 4 rounds. Davis, making his return to the ring after almost 3 years out, was fighting outside of the US for the first time did what was expected of him and shook off the ring rust before stopping Ramos.
In Australia we had the first Heavyweight bout of the day and unfortunately it turned to be the least important with Andre Meunier (7-1, 3) stopping the debuting Kane Holmes (0-1) in just 80 seconds. We would complain about this bout but Meunier was returning to action for the first time since 2009 and is almost 38 years old. Unfortunately Holmes turned out to be totally inept though we can't blame Meunier there.
