Jamie Mullarkey is an Australian mixed martial artist and former amateur boxer. He currently competes in the lightweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
Mullarkey was born on October 18, 1995, in Melbourne, Australia. After completing high school he began training at MMA & Fitness gym and competed in amateur boxing as well as kickboxing and Muay Thai. His efforts paid off quickly when he won his first fight by unanimous decision. He went on to compete professionally, taking part in both Cage Fighting Championships Australia and Eternal MMA before signing with UFC in 2018.
His UFC debut came against Alexander Hernandez at UFC 234 where he lost a split decision after three rounds of action-packed back-and-forth fighting which earned him Fighter Of The Night honors from many outlets including official broadcaster ESPN. Mullarkey then dropped down to featherweight for his next fight against Damir Ismagulov at UFC 243 which ended up being cut short due to an accidental low blow near the end of round 2 resulting in a no contest ruling from the referee.
In spite of that disappointment Jamie moved forward with determination winning two consecutive fights; one by unanimous decision against Fares Ziam at UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs Volkov followed by another unanimous decision victory over Brad Riddell at UFC 253 just recently this past September 2020.. During these wins it became apparent that Mullarkey had been able to significantly bolster his striking skills since joining the promotion – something for which teammate Israel Adesanya praised him during an interview on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast earlier this year (2020).
At just 25 years old Jamie is still growing as a fighter both technically and strategically while racking up more wins every time out; so much so that some are already discussing possible title opportunities within reach if he can stay consistent over the coming years – something most definitely achievable according to those who have seen him rise through ranks thus far given how dedicated drive has been to consistently push himself further each day.. That focus has also led him become involved outside sport too becoming ambassador various charities such Wellbeing Australia & The Australian Paralympic Committee – roles which allow him help make positive changes throughout community show young people importance giving back even amidst personal success stories like own.. As result all signs point towards continued growth future greatness for Jamie Mullarkey inside ring or out!
