Broken Bones, Unbroken Will: Maddalena’s Heroic Win at UFC 299

"A Resilient Victory Against All Odds"

Courage in the Cage

Jack Della Maddalena, the rising UFC sensation, clinched an unforgettable victory at the blockbuster event UFC 299 this past weekend. In a welterweight clash, the Australian fighter triumphed over former title contender Gilbert Burns with a third-round TKO. This win marked Maddalena’s seventh consecutive victory in the premier MMA organization, cementing his status as a top-tier welterweight. On the other hand, Burns faces his second consecutive defeat, having previously lost to Belal Muhammad.

A Test of Will and Bone

In a revealing post, MMA manager Tim Simpson shared that Maddalena sustained a broken arm in the first round against Burns. The injury was the result of a powerful kick from the Brazilian, testing the Australian’s resilience. “Jack Della Maddalena broke his arm early in the fight. He fought to finish in the third round. A true soldier! PS. Gilbert kicks hard,” Simpson noted in an Instagram story.

Following his victory over Burns, Maddalena wasted no time in calling out Shavkat Rakhmonov, another top-ranked UFC talent. Rakhmonov boasts an impressive undefeated record of 18-0 in his MMA career. He is coming off a dominant win against UFC veteran Stephen Thompson at UFC 296 last December.
