HEX Fight Series, Australia’s premier MMA offering, is live on Friday with a card boasting three title fights. The main event has HEX heavyweight champ Randall Rayment meeting challenger Ricky Biechun. The co-main event is Abdalla Biayda and Semakadde Kakembo battling it out for the HEX featherweight title. Biayda was supposed to meet Kaan Ofli in this bout, but an injury to Ofli means Kakembo moves up from his previously scheduled main card fight with Michael Barber to go for gold. The third title fight is Cody Haddon and Raja Shippen meeting for the vacant HEX bantamweight title.
