After UFC Hamburg win, Ashlee Evans-Smith travels globe for kiss
Ashlee Evans-Smith (5-1) is coming off her second consecutive win inside the octagon after defeating Veronica Macedo via third round TKO this past weekend in Hamburg, Germany.
Evans-Smith, a native of California traveled to Germany for the fight at UFC Fight Night 93 but rather than celebrate her victory in Deutschland or return home to the States, the rising 135-pounder traveled to Australia….. for a kiss.
It appears as if love is in the air as Evans-Smith hopped on a plane to the ‘Land Down Under’ where she linked up with new beau and fellow mixed martial artist, Julian Wallace.

Wallace (6-4), also known as ‘Julz the Jackal’ is a native of Australia who competed one week prior to his girlfriend, Evans-Smith. He was submitted by Gustavo Falciroli in the main event at XFC 27 on August 27.
Wallace is known for being tattooed head-to-toe and for a YouTube video that went viral after he attempted to intimidate one time opponent Ben Nguyen at the pre-fight weigh-ins, by getting into his face and trying to put Nguyen off his game. It backfired as Wallace was knocked out just 25-seconds into the fight.
None of that matters however as both he and Evans-Smith seem happy together as a couple even if they do live on opposite sides of the globe. He even surprised her by taking her to see one of her favorite metal bands, Suicide Silence, play last night in Sydney.
