Jake Matthews, 21, is a lightweight Mixed Martial Artist from Melbourne, Vic. He currently competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship in the lightweight division. His record counts the total of 11 bouts with 10 wins. Four out of five victories he has collected at the world’s leading MMA promotion – the UFC.

Matthews made his UFC induction in December 2013 being a part of the national squad at The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Canada vs. Australia. His latest bout was at UFC Fight Night: Hunt vs. Mir in March 2016 in Brisbane, Qld. He has taken the round 3 submission victory over American Johnny Case in the bout proclaimed as the ‘Fight of the Night’. On July 8 Jake Matthews is announced to take on Stevie Ray from Scotland at The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

On Saturday 21st May Jake Matthews is expected to appear at the mega muaythai show in Perth, Western Australia – Nemesis 11. An outstanding event is headlined by Australia’s best middleweight Toby ‘The Weapon’ Smith fighting French elite Johane Beausejour. The semi-main event aims to title the new Australian champions when Benny Mahoney and Chadd Collins face Ricardo Pisaneschi and Parviz Iskenderov in the welterweight and super-lightweight divisions.

Few weeks ahead of Nemesis 11 Perth a blog footage emerged on Jake Matthews’ Facebook fan page, where he welcomes everyone to attend the show.

“G’day guys, I just want to say a quick hello to everyone in Perth,”

“I will be over there on the 21st of this month, for the Nemesis fight show,”

“Hope to see you all there.”

Indeed, promoters Patrick Talbot and Bill Seth put together an outstanding gala, that will see a knockout fight card as well as a list of notable personalities presenting on the night.

Earlier this week the World Kickboxing Network has appointed an eleven-time world champion Nathan Carnage Corbett to supervise WKN bouts. The legend John Wayne Parr brings his protegee Ben Mahoney to fight for Australian title against Ricardo Pisaneschi.
