This Saturday night, two of the top featherweights will be battling it out for V3fights interim title when Nick Davis and Luis Pena square off. Davis made his V3 debut back in 2009 and sports a 6-1 record inside of the V3 cage. He has been involved in some of the most memorable fights that the Legion has ever seen including several fight of the nights, submission of the nights, and a five round war with Jesse James Wallace. Luis Pena is undefeated with the promotion and has finished every fight by submission.
Style wise, this fight is very interesting. These are easily the two tallest fighters in the division. Both fighters are very dangerous on the ground. Pena was a standout collegiate wrestler and Davis is a jiu-jitsu practitioner that can finish the fight anywhere on the ground. When it comes to striking, both fighters can be very technical or they can stand and bang with the best of them. One thing is for sure, the crowd is in for a treat on Saturday night when these two step in the cage. Check out what both fighters had to say about this fight and their opponent:
I love this match up. Luis is a tough, scrappy kid that always brings it and I think the way we match up stylistically that the fans win every time. I haven't seen Luis fight since he changed camps, but he seems to have really good wrestling and he may or may not have a slight reach advantage. With that being said, I still plan to beat him everywhere in this fight. Call me cocky, but I'm confident that I've done everything I could do to get my hand raised Saturday night at Minglewood Hall.
I have a lot of respect for Nick and his abilities, but no matter what I think, this is going to be an exciting fight for everybody involved. I think I have the advantage on the ground because of my wrestling, however, I’m prepared for a fight on the feet. No matter the outcome, this is going to be a great fight to watch.
