What started out as something he wanted to try after seeing it on television has now become his passion, and on April 28, Ryan Collins, one of the pioneers of mixed martial arts in the state of Tennessee, returns to the V3 cage.
Collins hails from Jackson, TN and currently has a professional record of 5-0. He trains out of The FightShop and Glory BJJ and also has 19 amateur bouts under his belt. For the last decade, he has been one of the top fighters in the mid-south and is looking to continue his winning ways at the Fitz Casino in Tunica, MS next Saturday night.
Standing in his way will be Justin Prescott, who is arguably his toughest opponent to date. When asked about this fight, here is what Collins had to say:
“I don’t really know the guy or what he does. I am prepared for the fight no matter where it goes and I’m confident that I will have the advantage whether standing or on the ground.”
A lot of good things have been happening to Collins since his most recent win. He recently signed with the prestigious management company, SuckerPunch Entertainment as well as a four fight deal with V3Fights.
“SuckerPunch has been great. They are very good at what they do. David is awesome and takes care of me. And I love fighting for V3! It’s good to fight for a promotion that cares about the fighters,” states Collins.
This will be his first fight on his new four fight deal, so get your tickets now and see if Ryan “Red Hot” Collins can stay undefeated!
