In April, the V3 Legion got to witness what top level wrestling is when Jahsua Marsh won the inaugural professional heavyweight title for V3Fights. However, there is a fighter out there who although may be impressed with Marsh, isn’t intimidated. That fighter is undefeated Kem Oti and he will challenge Marsh for his title on June 17 in Memphis, TN.
Oti is currently 3-0 and trains at Spartan Fitness and MMA in Homewood, Alabama.
Growing up he played a lot of sports and ended up playing football in college. He then took his talents to the professional level and played arena football for a few years. Once he realized that his window was closing, he started looking for another hobby and found MMA to fill that competitive void.
He ran through the amateur ranks in the region and so far has remained perfect as a professional and on June 17, Oti knows what a big task he has ahead of him. He also knows that this fight can definitely put him on the radar of one of the big leagues. Oti states, “This will be a great opportunity to propel my fight career. It will give me a chance to prove that I can compete with the best.”
When asked about this upcoming fight and opponent, here is what Oti also had to say:
“Mr. Marsh has a good wrestling background and will be a tough opponent. But I’m consistently working hard, practicing my craft and training with a group of guys who want to succeed and want to see others succeed and that will give me anadvantage so whatever he comes at me with, I’ll be prepared. It will be a great accomplishment to win the V3 title and another stepping stone to further my career.”
