Impact Fighting Championships held its first event, dubbed “Uprising,” in Brisbane, Australia, on Saturday. It may have been the promotion’s debut, but veteran fighters were out in full force at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Josh Barnett marked his first fight in the Land Down Under with a TKO stoppage midway through the opening round.

Karo Parisyan, a UFC veteran, made his first start in a year and a half, submitting late replacement Ben Mortimer with a rear naked choke late in the second round. Karo apparently had an anxiety attack and they pushed his fight to be the first one on the card, even before the prelims.

The Impact FC promoter wants to take the show to Brazil in September and plans to go worldwide in 2011.

Quick results
-Josh Barnett def. Geronimo Dos Santos by TKO (Strikes) at 2:35, R1
-Brian Ebersole def. Carlos Newton by Unanimous Decision, R3
-Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou def. Joaquim Ferreira by TKO (Strikes) at 1:20, R1
-Jeff Monson def. Ubiritan Lima Marinho by Unanimous Decision
-Thiago Meller def. Jai Bradney by Submission (Guillotine Choke) at 1:32, R1
-Fabio Fernandes def. Api Hemara by Submission (Rear Naked Choke) at 3:58, R1
-Tom Waters vs. Jacob Mahony by TKO (Strikes) at 1:38, R2
-Karo Parisyan def. Ben Mortimer by Submission (Rear Naked Choke) at 4:18, R2

Uh. How?

Aside from a few exceptions most of the high level heavyweights fight in the US. And I really doubt a promoter's going to take a chance in America on Barnett, especially if a drug test is involved. If he wants a serious paycheck I think he's going to have to make do with fighting overseas.

Monson also wants to go to LHW (As the HW's are just getting too big). He will be a beast in the LHW division.

Great result for Brian Ebersole. This guy needs to be looked at more seriously in the pro MMA scene.

The Brisbane show is not available. The Sydney show will be shown on In Demand on this upcoming Sat. Some of the matches from the Brisbane show will be shown with the Sydney show.
