On April 29 the V3 Legion is going to witness something special when Jahsua Marsh takes the cage.
Marsh (Brentwood, NY/fighting out Long Island MMA) has been wrestling since the age of 13 and was a four time collegiate All-American and an NAIA national champion. That alone is something that the fans in this region have really not had a chance to experience so they are in for a treat. But on top of his collegiate credentials, he also has competed on the national level for freestyle and at the Olympic and world trial qualifiers such as the US Open.
He got started in MMA in his sophomore year of college when his teammate, Blaze Gill, introduced him to the sport.
“He had two or three amateur belts and it was something I instantly wanted. He got me on about three cards and within a year I won all three with ease” states Marsh.
However, he was still competing in wrestling so he put MMA on hold until his wrestling career was over to start training full time.
On April 29 he finds himself fighting to become the first ever V3Fights’ professional heavyweight champion! Standing in his way is former undefeated V3Fights’ amateur champion, Shea Taylor, who is currently undefeated as a professional. When asked about his opponent and this opportunity, here is what Marsh had to say:
“I honestly do not know a lot about this guy. I know he’s undefeated so he must be tough so I’m not overlooking him. He’s just another person in my way and that’s how I see it. I’m going to give this fight everything that I have. I’m confident in my craft so I feel I have an advantage in all areas. I know I’m walking out of that cage with my hand raised.”
