At AFC 6 on 24 August the semi finals of the Welterweight Tournament will take place. AFC fans can look forward to two great fights; the first will see Corey ‘The Major’ Nelson taking on Walber ‘Te Te’ De Barros. Corey is coming off a hard fought win against Alex Volkanovski – a fight he finished with an impressive head kick. Walber on the other hand received his semi final ticket after his AFC opponent was disqualified for missing weight. Coming off an extended rest Walber will be keen to get in the ring and mix it up.
The second fight pits the highly talented Jake ‘The Celtic Kid’ Matthews against Dean ‘The Punisher’ Purdon. Jake’s fight against Luke Jemeau at AFC 5 was one of the fights of the night for me; Jake’s ability to out strike Luke and dominate him on the ground was particularly impressive. Dean is coming off a win in probably the most anticipated fight of the night against Peter Davenport. There was a lot of heat in this one but in the end Dean’s experience showed and walked away with a crafty submission victory.
