On Saturday night, Erich Shelton will look to ruin Brian “The Law” Hall’s V3Fights’ homecoming when they step into the cage in the night’s main event.
Shelton is currently 5-2 and hails from San Antonio, TX. He fights out of Rodrigo Pinheiro BJJ and Pete Spratt Muay Thai. On Saturday night, he will have his biggest test to date when he takes on hometown fighter, Brian Hall. Shelton weighed in on his upcoming fight with “The Law.”
How did you get started in MMA?
I started MMA 5 years ago in my hometown of Galesburg, Illinois with a buddy of mine from school who put a beating on me my first day. I haven’t stopped training since.
What are your thoughts on your opponent, Brian Hall?
I respect Brian, but he is in the way of my dream and coming to his hometown, I have to finish him so that’s what I am going to do.
What would over Brian Hall mean to you?
A win over Brian Hall would be huge for my career because I’m currently coming off a split decision loss against his last opponent, Kevin Gray, whom Brian beat.
How do you see this fight going?
I feel like I can finish this fight anywhere, but more than likely a submission. I’m a great striker but I’d say my strength is my jits.
How has camp been for this fight?
My camp has been great. I’m training at a new gym so I’ve been going really hard to prove myself. Miletich Fighting Systems is the gym I came from, so I have all the tools to finish this fight.
The old saying goes, you fought the law and the law won. Eric Shelton is going to try to prove that saying wrong on Saturday night.
