What started as a casual conversation has turned into a career for professional MMA fighter, Anthony Daugherty.
A couple of years ago, he was talking to V3Fights’ matchmaker, Rod Galvan, about wanting to fight. Seven fights later and MMA is now Daugherty’s job.
“Rod is actually the first person that pushed me to get into the cage, and after my first fight I knew that I wanted to turn my hobby into a career” states Daugherty.
Since his debut fight, he has started his own fight team, TEAM AMP. He was the first person from his home town (Batesville, MS) to step into the cage and it was a passion, so more guys wanted to join him and now they are one of the most popular teams around with one of the biggest followings.
MMA is a good outlet for Daugherty and on Saturday night it will be the first time he steps in the V3 cage. Daugherty has a good combination of athleticism and knockout power in each hand and can finish the fight at any moment.
Standing in his way tomorrow night is Jordan Seufzer who will definitely look to take the fight to the ground as soon as he can. When asked about this fight, here is what Daugherty had to say:
“I’ve been training. I know I’m ready. I’ve seen some of his past fights. I know he’s got some good ground work, but I’m looking forward to testing out his stand-up game.”
Daugherty has been putting in a lot of work for this fight, especially with his cardio. A heavyweight with knockout power in each hand with good cardio could lead to a successful night for Daugherty. And what better promotion to do it on than the one who helped him get started!
