TUCKER HANGS UP GLOVES AND DIRK MILLER STEPS IN TO TAKE ON MIKE HACKNEY

Cody Tucker has suffered an ankle injury (fracture) and will not be fighting on May 30.  In fact, Tucker is hanging up his gloves and is going to focus on his career.   

“MMA is fun and nothing is better than V3, but MMA isn’t going to pay my bills.  I just need to focus on my career.  I appreciate everything V3 has done for me.  Nothing is better or more professional than V3Fights.” 

Stepping in to fight Mike Hackney for the vacant light heavyweight belt will be Dirk Miller from Paragould, AR.  Miller is currently 5-2 and trains out of “Fighting to Live” Gym.  When asked about stepping in to fight Hackney for the vacant title, here is what he had to say:

I feel good about this fight and really appreciate the opportunity to fight for the title. I can fight standing or on the ground, it just depends on how the fight goes or where I take it.  I should have the strength advantage. I see this fight ending up with me as the winner.”

V3 always delivers the best, action-packed fights that this region has ever seen, and May 30 will be no different when Miller steps into the cage to take on Mike Hackney for the vacant light heavyweight title.
