Minglewood Hall hosted another outstanding night of V3Fights!! The Legion was on the edge of their seats and the fighters put on an incredible show! Two new champions were crowned and the belts will be coming back home to the mid-south! “Fight of the Night” goes to Lorenzo Nathan and Brian Ames! These two fighters put on a three round slugfest and there was never a dull moment in the fight. “Submission of the Night” goes to Kyle Hughes. Usually you only see a d’arce guillotine choke in high level jiu-jitsu matches, but Hughes was able to secure one in the main event title fight which forced his opponent to tap. “Performance/Fighter of the Night” goes to newly crowned featherweight champion, Steven Birdsong. His wrestling took over and helped him win the title. V3Fights will be back in action on December 19 in Tupelo, MS.
