Anthony Hamilton wins heavyweight MMA title
All it took was 12 seconds.
Well, 12 seconds, a swift kick to the face, and moments later, Newcastle resident Anthony Hamilton hoisted a gilded belt above his head, cementing his worth as one of the world’s top heavyweight fighters.
Hamilton bested opponent Smealinho Rama in a Maximum Fighting Championship match in Canada on Oct. 4, earning the league’s title of heavyweight champion of the world.
