Bobby Moffett, one of the top featherweight fighters in the nation, will be making his V3Fights’ debut on June 16 where he will have the chance to impress the most influential person in all of MMA, Dana White who will be in attendance!
Moffett is currently 11-3 and trains at The MMA Lab in Phoenix, AZ. He got started in combat sports as a wrestler in Illinois where he wrestled for Homewood-Flossmore High School, which is one of the top programs in the south suburbs of Chicago.
He always wanted to be a fighter but didn’t really know about the UFC until the first “Ultimate Fighter’ came out on television during his freshman year of high school. A year after he graduated he took up jiu-jitsu and is now one of the top fighters in the country.
On June 16, Moffett will take on undefeated fighter, Jonathan Jackson, out of Jackson, MS. Jackson is a very exciting fighter, which means this fight could very well steal the show and win ‘Fight of the Night’ honors! When asked about this fight and opportunity, here is what Moffett had to say:
“Jackson is a tough opponent. He’s a little flashy, but I feel that I can win the fight in any area. I see me finishing the fight standing in the first round. I’m very excited to show off my skills in front of Dana White and prove to him that I deserve to be in the UFC.”
