With the latest installment of Australia’s Showpiece Mixed Martial Arts event just weeks away, I am happy to announce another great card.

Tickets are now available.You can view seating information at http://www.TheSpartan.tv (currently under construction).

Here is a quick rundown on the fights in the line up …

Dan Higgins is coming off a his spectacular Round 1 Submission on Pancrasse veteran Yuji Hisamatsu at the last Spartan, he is now set to take on another leading Japanese opponent that will be announced soon.

The ‘Hunter’ Adrian Pang is looking to add the Australian Featherweight title to his already impressive record when he takes on the ‘rising star’ that is ‘Dinosaur’ Jake Sidic.Jaje is coming off a 6 week training stint in Tokyo, where he sparred and rolled with some of the best in the business.This will be one of the most talked about matches of the year.

Also featuring Spartan regular Matt ‘Rolling Bear’ Cain will be banging it out with New Zealand sensation Hamish ‘F U’ Robertson.Both boys in sensational form, this is sure to please.

Former Pancration champion Jon Leven will be making his Spartan debut against a formidable opponent in Newcastle’s Justin Murray! Justin was narrow points loser a split decision against Matt Cain last start and Jon is coming off a TKO 1st round stoppage also against Matt (Cain) that saw both boys letting the leather fly.This match up will be a war!
