Where is this bloke? Aussie's dont have the best records in the UFC, so where has he ended up?

Im an Aussie, and all i wanna see is a solid Aussie step into the octagon.

Why is it the UFC doesnt look this far south, cause i know there are some top fighters out here, Nathan 'Carnage' Corbett being one of them. Dude owns the elbow strikes. He fights muay thai, with a record of 32-2 with 25KOs, and currently is the WBC World Champion and also holds the WMC World Title 82kg &86kg.

Get this guy in a cage someone.

I hope they bring Soa back. I thought he'd stomp Sanchez, but Sanchez looked good in that fight, and Soa never seem to get anything going.

If I had to hazard a guess as to why Aussies don't have a stronger appearance, I'd wager it has to do with the cost of flying in a fighter and his fight team. Then again, they fly in Japanese fighters sometimes, so that can't be all of it, but there could be a cost issue involved.

yeah after i saw a few of his fights and his highlight i thought he would beat sanchez too, soa did look like he was sick or something, just didnt engage, this was a perfect fight for him stylistically, he should have gone for broke then maybe even if he lost he would have gotten to come back because he was exciting
