Expect fireworks on March 25 when former teammates collide as Tyler Smith battles Alvin Williams in a lightweight fight. 

These two fighters were both a part of Team Vortex back in 2010 and trained together on a daily basis.  Both fighters had several amateur bouts under the Vortex banner.  Seven years later and Williams is now a professional fighter training at Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu and Smith is with Phalanx Fight Team.  Both like to stand and bang, so there is a good chance that this fight will not go to the judges.  When asked about fighting a familiar face, here is what both fighters had to say:

Tyler Smith

“It’s just another fight.  I never care who it is.  Once the cage doors close, he’s just an opponent.”

Alvin Williams

“It’s just business.  I like the guy.  I know he’s tough, but at the end of the day it’s a fight and someone has to take that L.  I expect it to be a tough fight but I will come  out on top and give the fans a show.  So for anyone who doesn’t know who Alvin Williams is, they will know that night.”
