18 years ago, whenever anyone associated MMA and Memphis, the name ‘Rampage Jackson’ probably came to mind. Today, names like ‘Jaleel Willis and ‘Reggie Adams’ is who people think of when it comes to fighting in the Bluff City. However, in between these two time periods, it was Austin Lyons that dominated the mixed martial arts scene in the mid-south.
Lyons (12-5) has fought or been a part of just about every major organization in the world including the UFC, Bellator MMA, RFC and LFC (now LFA). He is also a veteran of the V3 cage and after a three-year layoff, Lyons returns to V3Fights on March 24!
Lyons now spends his time training at both the MPD boxing gym and the UFC Gym Cordova. He has been itching to get back in the cage and showing the fans that he is still a force to be reckoned with in this sport.
Standing in his way is the fighter everyone loves to hate, Kevin Henry. These two have started quite a rivalry on social media as of late and when asked about this fight, here is what Lyons had to say:
“I’m just happy to be back. The opponent doesn’t matter, but with that being said, I’m glad it’s Kevin.’
Whether you’re a fan of old school MMA in this area or a fan of the newer generation, get your tickets now and witness Austin Lyon’s return to the V3 cage!
