Mike “The Warrior” Wilkinson made a fantastic UFC debut this weekend in a “Fight of the Night” candidate at UFC on FX 6 in Australia. He took on fellow UK countryman and friend Brendan Loughnane, putting on the kind of three round battle all fight fans could enjoy. Great standup, effective grappling and lots of heart were on display from both fighters for the full fifteen minutes. In the end it though it was Wilkinson that got the judges decision, keeping his undefeated professional record intact. We certainly had a lot to talk about when he came on the MMA Mental Podcast this Wednesday, with a planned drop to the UFC Featherweight division among the topics discussed.

Guess everyone is looking for the weight advantage these days. More and more fighters are dropping down.

He was a FW going into the house, thats why he had NP's with the cut.

for breaking the news on your podcast Rabi.

I hope Wilkinson gets another shot at his natural weight in the UFC.

I should have elaborated. I meant i hope he gets a shot at fighting a legit FW and not just another UK guy on a UK undercard.
