If you like knockouts, slugfests, and action packed MMA, then the Fitz Hotel and Casino was the place to be on Saturday night. From the opening bell to the main event, there wasn’t a dull moment in any fight. Three new champions were crowned and Steven Birdsong successfully defended his belt for the last time and declared he will now be turning pro. “Knockout of the Night” honors goes to Casey Hatley. He took this fight on short notice and knocked his opponent out in just 23 seconds into the first round. “Submission of the Night” goes to Seth Boswell. He used his superior jiu-jitsu and landed a beautiful head and arm triangle in the first round, which forced his opponent to tap out. “Fight of the Night” honors goes to Raheam Forest and Cole Coleman. Slams, slick submissions, and stand and bang fighting was what this fight had for three straight rounds. “Fighter/Performance of the Night” goes to Brian Mitchell. I haven’t seen knockout power like that in a long time and he sent a notice out to everyone in the lightweight division that he plans to stay champion for a long time. V3Fights’ will be back in action on November 19, 2016 at Minglewood Hall.
