On August 6, 2016, heavyweight fighter, Dakotah McFerson took a last minute fight for V3Fights the day before the event. On fight night, he defeated Shayne Goforth in just under three minutes via TKO in the first round and it’s been all uphill ever since. Two months later he found himself fighting for the heavyweight title against Ira Sherrod in which he was able to win the heavyweight strap in 1:08 in the second round with another TKO victory. Fast forward to January of 2017, and McFerson took on Thomas Clingon and the V3 Legion witnessed another first round TKO victory.
This Saturday night, McFerson will be defending his title against his toughest opponent to date, Scotty Stober. Stober brings to the table great size, speed, strength as well as a dominant ground game. When asked about this fight, here is what McFerson had to say:
“I’ve always been a firm believer in not focusing on my opponent. Focusing on myself is how I win. I’m the only one I can control in a fight, so I focus on each moment, pushing harder and harder. I’m a different heavyweight man. The longer the fight goes, the better I get. He’s a talented dude with some solid pieces and resources around him, but at the end of the day I have more heart than anyone. I fight for my savior first and foremost and if I lose I can’t share the gospel with all those people in my interview. We are faced with two options every single day as athletes, we can give in or we can get better. As long as I constantly improve and get better, I’m winning half of the battle there.”
