Once again, fighters from across the mid-south area left everything they had in the V3 cage on Saturday night and had the Legion screaming. A new champion was crowned and two champions successfully defended their titles. “Fight of the Night” honors goes to Solo Hatley and champion, Michael Walker. Both guys fought their hearts out for nine straight minutes with back and forth action on the mat and on their feet. “Submission of the Night” goes to Zac Petereit who was able to tap out his opponent in just under a minute in the first round. “Knockout of the Night” goes to Jeremy Rogers. In Just seventeen seconds in the opening bout he took down his opponent and landed three brutal strikes that put him out cold. “Fighter/Performance of the Night” goes to champions Steven Birdsong and Ira Sherrod. Both fighters (who are also teammates) put on fights that were a mirror image of each other that ended in a TKO in the first round.
V3Fights will be back in action on September 3 at the Delta Fair and Music Festival and October 1 at The Fitz Hotel and Casino in Tunica, MS.
