BRACE capped off its last event of the calendar year with six fights.
BRACE 25 took place on December 21st at the North Leagues Club in Sydney, Australia.
Matt Darke faced Will Swann in a 155-lbs headliner, and did just enough to get the judges’ nod. Swann had his moments during the striking exchanges, but Darke’s tactics against the cage proved too much. It was Darke’s first win his pro Mixed Martial Arts career following an 0-2 start.
