THE HITMAN LOOKING TO MAKE HEADLINES ONCE AGAIN

Teddy “The Hitman” Holder has been a professional fighter since 2008.  However, it was two years ago when he made headline news in one of the most talked about stories in all of MMA when he took a fight on short notice (hours before) and knocked outUFC veteran and title contender, Thiago Silva in the first round of their main event fight.  In fact, Holder has nine wins and every single victory has come in the first round. 

On March 25, Holder once again finds himself in the main event when he tries to become the first ever light heavyweight champion for V3Fights. 

“V3 has a very good reputation and is a growing promotion to say the least, so being the first 205 champion is an opportunity that I would like to take full advantage of and see where it might take me” states Holder. 

Standing in his way is another crafty and dangerous veteran, Adrian “Guard Yo Grill” Miles.  Miles has knockout power in both hands and a good ground game to go along with his outstanding striking.  He has also fought some of the best fighters to ever step into the cage in the southeast region.  When asked about this fight, here is what Holder had to say:

“I think it's going to be a good fight for the fans.  Adrian is a very well rounded fighter that has fought good opponents and comes from a very good camp. It's definitely not a give me fight by any means and I expect it to be a chess match so to speak between two fighters trying to impose their wills and different game plans.  It's hard to say where my advantage will be.  I've seen Adrian be willing to stand as well as try to grind out the W, but if I had to 100% say where I think I'm more likely to win the fight I would say on my feet and my advantage would be standing.  I plan on picking back up where I left off getting better and keep driving forward.”

Get your tickets now, because on March 25 Teddy Holder will once again try to make headline news and make history by becoming the first ever light heavyweight champion for V3Fights!

FEBRUARY 4 RESULTS

History was made once again on Saturday night in Tupelo, MS.  The Summit Center was jammed packed as the V3 ‘Legion’ witnessed an awesome night of fights. 

Two new champions were crowned and V3 now has their first ever professional middleweight champion.  “Fight of the Night” honors went to Hannah Guy and Olivia Fisher.  It was both of their MMA debuts, but one would never have known based on the way these two females went at it in the cage.  “Knockout of the Night” went to Artavious Allen.  In just 1:18 into the very first round, he was able to land devastating elbows and strikes to his opponent, which forced the ref to step in and stop the fight.  “Submission of the Night” went to Kevin Bollig.  With just one second left in the second round, he was able to make his opponent tap via triangle choke.  “Performance/Fighter of the Night” goes to Josiah Bradford.  Although just 17 years of age, he looked like a season veteran in his MMA debut with a second round TKO victory. 

Raheam Forest is now V3Fights’ new welterweight champion and Grady Hurley is their first ever professional middleweight champion.

Get to Know Bryce “Thug Nasty” Mitchell

Career Beginnings

Hailing from the great State of Arkansas, Bryce “Thug Nasty” Mitchell possesses all of the ingredients for a successful MMA career. Born in 1994, Mitchell, like most fighters, began his career in the amateurs leagues. Bouncing between school and training, Thug Nasty walked away from his first six fights with a 5-1 record. Impressive wins against Zak Ort in the Legacy Fighting Championship 34 and fellow up and comer Tony Williams primed him to take his skills to the next level.

Professional Career:

Hard work is often rewarded, and Bryce Mitchell definitely reaped the benefits of his amateur success. Beginning his pro career with a fight against Sheldon Smith, Mitchell demonstrated his quick reflexes and scored a very decisive victory. His success did not end there. Working his way up to World Series of Fighting 33, Mitchell racked up win after win, entering the event with six straight victories. The first significant fight of his professional career came against Brandon Phillips of American Top Team OKC. In that fight, Mitchell continued to display his hard work and submitted Phillips just three minutes in. This marked the moment where Thug Nasty was no longer just another Featherweight.

Physical Profile:

Fighting as a featherweight is tough. With thousands of fighters trying to climb the ladder, competition is very robust, making the physical requirements for entry a tremendous feat. Bryce Mitchell is no exception to the strong standards of MMA fighters. Standing at 5’9” and weighing in at 145 pounds, Mitchell follows the featherweight norm of packing a big punch in a small frame, though he has a slight height advantage with the global featherweight average being 5’7” and 145 pounds.

Record and Analysis

Since making his professional debut on January 25, 2015, Mitchell is undefeated with seven consecutive wins. Most of these victories have come within the first three minutes of the fight, and all have been by submission. The speed at which he submits opponents (an average. of 2:58)  is astounding compared to the sports average time of victory of eleven minutes for featherweights. While seven fights may be a small sample, there is no doubting his lethal submission abilities in the cage against. Currently ranked at thirteenth in the US Southeast and second in Tennessee Mitchell's rank is climbing, just like his record

Looking to the Future

As dangerous and brutal as the sport of MMA is made out to be, it is without a doubt more popular than ever. With countless established stars and many rising stars such as Bryce Mitchell, the future is extremely bright. With ratings up and UFC finally legal in New York, it has been a great year for the sport. While no one knows how long it will take Thug Nasty to become a household name, I believe it is only a matter of time. He will ring in the new year with a fight against Isaac Ware for the Pro Featherweight title on January 14th, 2017.

JUDO AND GRAPPLING STANDOUT MAKES HER MMA DEBUT

Deshimar Rodriguez has dominated in judo tournaments (35-3), grappling tournaments (37-0) and has been training in Muay Thai since the age of three and this Saturday night she gets to blend it all together in her mixed martial arts debut.   Standing in her way is 2-0 Angie Hoaglin from Tram Relentless in Arkansas.

Rodriguez represents 'The Rodriguez Clan' and comes from a long history of family members who practiced martial arts.  She cross trains at both the UFC Gym Cordova and Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu, and to start off her camp she trained for a few weeks in Puerto Rico. When asked about her opponent and MMA debut here is what Rodriguez has to say:

"My opponent is very good and very tough and strong. I want to win this fight to demonstrate who I am. I want it to go all three rounds so everyone can see my skills."

Fight fans don't want to miss this one. Deshimar Rodriguez has all the tools to be V3's next star, so get your tickets now and watch her shake things up in the strawweight division.

WILDCHILD LOOKING TO LIGHT UP THE NIGHT FOR A FINAL TIME

Harry Johnson is one of the pioneers of fighting when it comes to MMA in the South.  And on November 19, he will step into the cage for the last time when he takes on dominant striker, Tony Retic, in his final fight.

Johnson was a former football player, and when finished playing, he saw a video of a friend's fight and decided to give mixed martial arts a try.  25 fights later (as well as several amateur fights), and Johnson is one of the most popular fighters in the mid-south area.  He posts a 13-12 record and when it comes to fighting, he has the any time, any place, any opponent mentality.

One thing that is changed about this next fight for Johnson he now calls Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu his home and according to Johnson he has gotten "stronger and more well-rounded in MMA" since joining MJJ.  In fact, when done fighting, Johnson plans to stay at Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu as a trainer and teacher.

Johnson has always been a fan favorite so get your tickets now and witness 'Wildchild' for the last time inside of the cage.

F0RMER FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPION KYLE HUGHES STEPS INTO THE V3CAGE FOR HIS FIRST PROFESSIONAL FIGHT WITH V3FIGHTS

Former featherweight champion, Kyle Hughes, will now step into the V3Fights’ cage as a professional on November 19. 

Hughes is currently 1-0, and standing in his way will be Alejandro Castaneda in the much-anticipated rematch from their amateur days in which Hughes won via first round submission. 

Hughes knew it was time to turn professional when he was having problems finding fights as an amateur.  He had five opponents back out and he knew turning pro would help avoid that problem.  Since turning pro, he has stepped up his training and is now focused more on strength and conditioning as well as nutrition and is ready to go 5x5 minute rounds.  He considers The Fight Clinic his home gym, but also cross trains with the prestigious Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu and while school is in session he also trains in Oxford.  When asked about this opportunity and opponent, here is what Hughes had to say:

“I think he’s a game opponent obviously, since he wants a rematch.  I think he is scrappy and has some solid grappling skills and pretty good pressure.  I respect him for stepping up and taking this fight again, but I see myself getting the finish again.” 

Kyle Hughes is one of the top up and coming fighters in the mid-south area and on November 19 will look to continue his winning ways and stay undefeated.  Get your tickets now!

CHRIS HALL LOOKING TO COME OUT VICTORIOUS ON MAY 7

After nine amateur MMA victories, Chris Hall will be looking to get his first professional win when he steps into the cage on May 7 at the Fitz Casino in Tunica, MS. 

Standing in his way is ground and pound specialist, Jesse Sanderson.  To avoid playing Sanderson’s game, Hall has put together one heck of a camp, which includes working out with the college wrestling team at Cumberland University. 

“The guys (on the college team) up there are beating me up, but that’s what they do.  They just focus on wrestling.  I also got some really good training partners that are pushing me as hard as they can to help prepare me for this fight” states Hall. 

Hall feels that he and Sanderson have a very similar style and the one who comes out victorious will be the fighter that fights smarter and can implement their game plan.    

One thing is for sure, this fight is going to be very hard to call so get your tickets now and witness what looks to be an awesome fight!!!

THE MID-SOUTH'S BEST KEPT SECRET ENTERS THE CAGE ON SATURDAY NIGHT

One of the best kept secrets in the mid-south will once again enter the V3 cage on Saturday night when state champion wrestler, Reginald Adams, puts his undefeated record on the line in front of the V3 Legion. 

He is currently 3-0 and trains out of Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu.  Standing in his way will be hard hitting, crafty veteran Darian Bradshaw.  This will by far be Adams biggest test to date and when asked about it here is what he had to say:

“I put a lot of time and effort into this training camp.  I hope he’s been training his hardest because this will be the hardest fight he’ll ever have!  My advantage comes in my ground game.  It’s very strong and I have gotten better.  I think he is going to underestimate my stand up game and I’m going to surprise him!” 

Adams is one or two fights away from a title shot and on March 12 everyone will see why!  Get your tickets now!

V3 TO CROWN THE FIRST EVER STRAWWEIGHT CHAMPION ON MARCH 12

History will be made on Saturday night when V3Fights crown their first ever women’s strawweight champion. 

Participating in this historic bout will be Shannon Goughary (6-3/Nashville MMA) going up against Laura Uyeda (5-1/Westside MMA).  Both fighters have similar styles so this should be exciting no matter where the fight takes place.  When asked about this opportunity, here is what each girl had to say:

Shannon Goughary

“I think this is a great fight for me.  I don’t know very much about my opponent but from what I can tell it looks like it will be a tough fight and that’s what I’m looking for.  I think that the advantage that I have is that I am a complete, well-rounded fighter and I am going to be comfortable and confident wherever the fight goes.”

Laura Uyeda

“She’s going to be tough.  I don’t have time to knock off that cage rust.  I’m confident that my training leading up to this fight has put me in position to jump in there and get to work.  I have the skill, the work ethic, and if nothing else, I wont’ stop… I don’t give up.  I’ve competed and been successful in a number of different sports, but winning a fight is the best.  Saturday is going to be my night.  I’m going to showcase my skills, make a lot of people proud, and earn that belt. “

TAYLOR LOOKS TO BECOME V3'S NEWEST HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION

Undefeated heavyweight fighter, Shea Taylor (5-0), will tackle his toughest task to date when he takes on submission specialist Dirk Miller on Saturday night. 

He comes into this fight with a great deal of momentum and three finishes inside of the V3 cage.    He knows that Miller won’t be an easy task, however he still feels positive about the outcome of the fight:

“I think that I have a lot of advantages in this fight, but my opponent has more experience than me so I am going to hit him with my best shots.  I think that this fight will be mostly striking but I’m most likely going to make him tap” states Taylor.      

Taylor has a great opportunity to win the most prestigious amateur title in the nation on Saturday night!!!  Get your tickets now at www.v3fights.com

HE'S BACK!!! THE RETURN OF TRAVIS ROBERTSON

On March 12, welterweight fighter, Travis Robertson (9-6), will once again step into the V3 cage.  This bout will be a number one contender fight for the 170 title. 

Robertson has been fighting for V3 ever since the promotion existed back in 2009.  In 2011, he took some time off from the sport to focus on his career and family.  He made his return in January of 2016 with a dominant win over Christian Ross at the FedExForum. 

On March 12, he will face another crafty veteran in Roderick Parker from Hot Springs, Ar.  When asked about this fight, here is what Robertson had to say:

“I don’t really know much about my opponent.  According to his record, it’s pretty clear that he has some experience, but I’m not too worried about it because I’m on a whole other level now.  I’d like for the fight to go on a little bit so I can showcase my skills and pick him apart, but if he makes a mistake I will capitalize on it.  I’m not the same fighter I used to be.  The game has evolved and so have I.” 

Robertson has been training with both Team Mid-South and USA Karate since his return and it seems to be working.  Catch him live in action on Saturday night as he tries to get one step closer to V3 gold.
