Impact FC- The Uprising- Saturday the 18th of July- Sydney Entertainment Centre
Just got a Facebook message from Australia's Inside MMA magazine about the Sydney show:
Ken Shamrock vs Pedro Rizzo
Murilo Bustamante vs Jesse Taylor
Jeff Monson vs Ricco Rodriguez
Joaquim "Mamute" Ferreira vs Soukoudjou
Paul Filho vs Denis Kang
Tickets on sale in "a couple of weeks" according to Ticketmaster today.
www.ticketmaster.com.au or 136 100
Also, Newcastle and Brisbane have their own shows but no details on the fights.
I'm willing to be the Bullshido representative at the Sydney event. I would do it out of the goodness of my heart, interview the fighters, etc. All I need is endorsement from Bullshido to find some press credentials. Anyone know how to go about this?
Looking into it, thanks for the offer. I think Impact FC is making some big moves, should be fun to watch a lot more competition coming into the mixed martial arts promotions world.
Takes a bit longer to respond when someone posts in a thread, direct PM or Support Forum topic usually gets a faster response.
Brilliant! Don't get me wrong; I'm not going, but that's still friggin' awesome that they're coming here.

I have also been given the opportunity to do an interview with one of the fighters over the phone in the weeks leading up to the event. I will be informed in the next week who is to be interviewed and when. As soon as I find out who I am interviewing, I thought it only fair that I should ask questions that the Bullshido community want to know, so on top of the questions I'm already asking throw some in the comments that you want to know and we'll figure out the best ones.
Thanks to PizDoff for your guidance on this one.
Another update: Paul "Semtex" Daley is fighting on the Sydney card.
Bob Sapp has been added to the card.
Paul Filho vs Denis Kang
Just caught this now. This should have been the championship match at PRIDE Fighting Championships - Bushido 13 on November 5, 2006 but Filho was unable to continue the due to elbow injury. Filho subbed Kazuo "Grabaka Hitman" Misaki with an armbar in the first while Kang beat Akihiro Gono by UD. I still think Kang should have got that decision. Both have since declined in lustre, but still interesting match making
