One has been dubbed a human highlight reel, while the other is fast becoming a featherweight stand-out.
Ballarat fighters Harry Webb and Luke Dally are slowly working their way up the mixed martial arts amateur ranks. And on July 20 the two men will re-enter the hexagon at the Path to Hex promotion in Melbourne.
It will be the sixth organised fight for Dally who holds an impressive record of four wins and one loss.
Set to face-off against New Zealand export Nick Thornton, the featherweight youngster said he was feeling confident heading into the fight.
"He is jujitsu orientated, his striking seems okay, and he looks like he knows what he is doing," he said.
"But I'm fairly confident on the ground, as well as standing up and wrestling. Wherever the fight goes I'm comfortable, and I feel like I've got the skills to adapt."
Dally will have his work cut out against Thornton who will enter the fight with an undefeated amateur record of two wins and zero losses.
Dally said a win against the New Zealander would help him elevate his career.
"It will definitely elevate me, any win will be good for me especially against an opponent with international experience," he said.
Webb's opponent is lesser known, however he certainly won't be underestimating his adversary in what will be his second appearance at the promotion.
The 70-kilogram fighter is coming off an impressive performance at the February Path to Hex event where he defeated Australian Tyrell Woollcott via TKO.
Boasting an extensive background in karate, Webb said he expected a tough fight next weekend.
"I watched my opponent's last fight in May, he looks like he's got a decent stand-up technique," he said.
"I haven't seen too much of him on the ground but it should be a good fight."
The bout will mark the second amateur fight for Webb who first took up the sport as a 16-year-old. He said a win would help him take the next step in his quest to one day enter the professional ranks.
"I have a background in striking but over the last two years I've been working on heaps of grappling techniques so I'm feeling confident in all areas," he said.
People look down on the sport because of the brutality of it, but it's like any other sport where it's two guys doing what they love and showing their skills in the cage.Luke Dally
Despite the dangers, both fighters professed a love for the sport and the competitiveness and adrenaline rush it provides.
After discovering MMA by accident while looking for a kickboxing gym, Dally said he has since fallen in love with it. He described the feeling after a fight as 'like nothing else'.
"People look down on the sport because of the brutality of it, but it's like any other sport where it's two guys doing what they love and showing their skills in the cage," he said.
"They don't hate each other."
Webb said having the chance to showcase his skills in the ring is very rewarding.
"I've only had the one fight so I'll just take it as it comes and see how I go," he said. Hopefully one day I'll go professional."
