The Pacific Hawk featuring DWTNCS season two alum Austin Springer

Sometimes on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, there have been fighters who have stepped up on short notice and know how to impress. In today’s episode ofĀ Across The Pond,Ā you will meet a pacific hawk with a keen knack for the finish. A professional since September 2007 and representingĀ Gracie Barra PortlandĀ andĀ Vancouver Elite Martial Arts,Ā Austin SpringerĀ holds an 11-3 record in 14 career bouts as a professional comprised of seven knockouts, two submissions and two decisions. Springer appeared on week two of season two of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series in 2018 and has fought for various promotions including Bellator MMA and Titan FC.

In his MMA debut at Combat Caged Warriors, he defeatedĀ John MartinezĀ via TKO in the first round. Springer defeated his next four opponents that saw wins overĀ Zach SkinnerĀ andĀ Aaron Martin.Ā Then at Main Event Sports Main Event MMA 2, he defeatedĀ Damon JordanĀ via TKO in the first round. Springer also defeated his next two opponents via TKO inĀ Josh SollisĀ andĀ Ryan Mulvihill.Ā At Prime Fighting 6, he defeated fellow DWTNCS season two alumĀ Toby Misech.Ā Springer knocked outĀ Tony BerglundĀ in the third round at Conquest of the Cage.

At DWTNCS 2, he submitted knockout artistĀ Giga ChikadzeĀ in round three via rear naked choke to earn his second submission win as a professional. At 11-3 with seven of those coming via knockout, it would not be a total surprise if Springer gets the chance to hone his skills in other promotions like LFA or a Bellator MMA return before season three of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender starts up again next summer. I Ā can’t wait to see what promotion picks up this pacific finisher next because whatever promotion lands him, they are getting a prospect who many believe is top of the line when it comes to featherweights in the Pacific Northwest!
