On June 16, Bobby Moffett (12-3/The MMA Lab) was successful in his V3Fights’ debut over a game opponent in Jonathan Jackson with a first round D’Arce Choke submission victory. In attendance that evening was UFC president, Dana White, filming his reality show “Looking For A Fight.”
With an impressive win over Jackson, Moffett earned a spot on “Dana White’s Tuesday Night’s Contender Series.”
“Dana asked me if I was able to fight for the contender series. At first I thought he meant in July which I said yes to, but they are doing more in August so this works out perfectly,” states Moffett.
Moffett will be fighting Jacob Kilburn from Tennessee on August 7 and it will take place at “The Ultimate Fighter” gym located in Las Vegas, NV. He knows Kilburn will be a game opponent, but Moffett feels pretty confident that he will be an official UFC fighter at the end of the evening:
“I’m looking forward to this opportunity. Kilburn is tough. It seems that he has a good all around game. He’s a skilled striker and I am looking forward to fighting him. I can take the fight anywhere I want and I plan on doing just that. What will it take to be signed at the end of the night? Just me being me. I’ve seen these moments in my mind already and I’m ready to live them out. Dana will like what he sees,” stated Moffett.
This fight can be seen on UFC Fight Pass. Be sure to tune in on August 7 and watch this V3Fights’ veteran’s dream come true.
