V3Fights have always put on outstanding fights for their fans. Back in 2011 the Legion got to witness a WAR when James Wallace and Ryan Collins stepped in the cage as amateurs. Six years later and those two will be doing it again as professionals and the V3 Legion can expect pretty much of the same on June 17, However, according to Wallace, the only difference this time will be the outcome.
Collins won the first meeting, and although he will see a familiar opponent across the cage from him, it’s going to be a totally different fighter this time.
“Last time we fought I was a seventeen year old kid. I’ve completely changed gyms and now train at the best gym around, Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu. But I haven’t forgotten our first fight. A loss sticks with me. It motivates me and teaches me” states Wallace.
Wallace has a record of 5-1, including an impressive win over Jonathan Burdine on a Bellator MMA undercard back in October.
He also had some other stuff to say about this upcoming fight and opponent:
“I respect Ryan and we have been fighting in the same area forever, so we know each other well. This fight is going to be the best fight on the best V3 card. I will win by first round TKO or submission. I feel I have the advantage everywhere.”
Fans can expect the same kind of fight that they saw six years ago, however, the only difference is this time they will get to see the new and improved Jesse James Wallace. Get your tickets now!!!
