Teddy “The Hitman” Holder has been a professional fighter since 2008.  However, it was two years ago when he made headline news in one of the most talked about stories in all of MMA when he took a fight on short notice (hours before) and knocked outUFC veteran and title contender, Thiago Silva in the first round of their main event fight.  In fact, Holder has nine wins and every single victory has come in the first round. 

On March 25, Holder once again finds himself in the main event when he tries to become the first ever light heavyweight champion for V3Fights. 

“V3 has a very good reputation and is a growing promotion to say the least, so being the first 205 champion is an opportunity that I would like to take full advantage of and see where it might take me” states Holder. 

Standing in his way is another crafty and dangerous veteran, Adrian “Guard Yo Grill” Miles.  Miles has knockout power in both hands and a good ground game to go along with his outstanding striking.  He has also fought some of the best fighters to ever step into the cage in the southeast region.  When asked about this fight, here is what Holder had to say:

“I think it's going to be a good fight for the fans.  Adrian is a very well rounded fighter that has fought good opponents and comes from a very good camp. It's definitely not a give me fight by any means and I expect it to be a chess match so to speak between two fighters trying to impose their wills and different game plans.  It's hard to say where my advantage will be.  I've seen Adrian be willing to stand as well as try to grind out the W, but if I had to 100% say where I think I'm more likely to win the fight I would say on my feet and my advantage would be standing.  I plan on picking back up where I left off getting better and keep driving forward.”
