Isi “Doxz” Fitikefu
27 | 5’8″ | New South Wales, Australia | 6-0 | 4 Finishes | 3 KO/TKO, 1 Submission (Kimura) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 20-7 | Best Win – Kitt Campbell (10-3)
As Australia is producing talent more each year, and at a higher level, Isi Fitikefu could be the next big thing out of the country. It is hard to tell right now how good Fitikefu is; he was on our list last year and that was when he was untested. He beat a good fighter in Kitt Campbell for the Eternal MMA title. That win alone should have the UFC all over him. He was in fact in contact with the UFC in 2020 and even weighed in as a back-up fighter for Ankalaev vs. Cutelaba 2, so 2021 may possibly be his year.
Fitikefu is a solid wrestler who has an aggressive and relentless pace with effective chain wrestling. He has one submission win on his resume, but he relies more on his ground and pound. On the feet, Fitikefu has big power in his hands and his right hand is a loaded gun that puts opponents to sleep. It seems like he can make the move down to 170 eventually, but overall he has all the tools to be a successful middleweight.
