King in the Ring Live

Mike ‘Blood Diamond’ vs Diego Beneduzzi – Light Heavyweight WKBF World Title

Young in his MMA career but not in time spent perfecting his craft. The New Zealand MMA community has high hopes for CKB’s Mike ‘Blood’ Diamond.

He’s a two-time King in The Ring champion – a pathway taken by UFC stars Israel Adesanya and Dan Hooker who are both, former champions.

It’s certainly early days, but the elite level of striking Diamond possess won’t go un-noticed for long.

His teammate Carlos Ulberg (3-0) had the same record last year, when he was awarded a UFC contract through Dana White’s Contender Series programme after a spectacular KO.

Ulberg and teammate Kai Kara-France were last week added to Adesanya’s UFC 259 card.

A true product of the Auckland based fighter factory, ‘Blood’ Diamond will be hoping a big 2021 will end with him inking a UFC deal of his own.
