The current batch of Australians plying their trade in the
Ultimate Fighting Championship
is arguably the strongest ever,
including current undisputed middleweight champion Robert
Whittaker
, women’s featherweight Megan
Anderson
, light heavyweight Tyson Pedro
and heavyweight Tai
Tuivasa
.

Ariel Helwani of ESPN reported on Wednesday that Tuivasa and his
brother-in-law Pedro have both signed new six-fight contracts for
the promotion, a growing sign of the talent coming from Down
Under.

The undefeated Tuivasa (8-0) is 3-0 in the UFC and is fast becoming
a fan favorite with his down-to-earth personality and post-fight
“shoey” celebration where he drinks from his shoe. He recently came
off an impressive win over former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei
Arlovski
by unanimous decision at UFC 225. At 25 years old,
Tuivasa has the potential to be a future champion in the sport. The
26 year-old Pedro (7-2) is 3-2 in the UFC and is coming off a
submission loss to Ovince St.
Preux
at UFC Fight Night back in June. Pedro has finished his
opponents in each of his seven wins and brings some new blood to a
light heavyweight division which is currently going through a
transition period.
