V3Fights out of Memphis, Tennessee is bringing their style of MMA fight shows to Florence, Alabama on Saturday, August 16. V3Fights was founded in Memphis, TN as an amateur fighting circuit in 2009. The company's mission is to provide quality MMA events for fans across the Mid-South, while serving as a proving ground for future professional MMA fighters. V3 has been wildly successful and very popular in Memphis, and has recently done a few shows in Nashville. This will be the first time that V3 has produced a mixed martial arts event in Alabama under the guidance of the State of Alabama Athletic Commission. Mixed Martial Arts fans and fighters alike are very excited about what V3Fights will be bringing to the local MMA community in this state.
Although this will be V3Fights first time in Alabama; they have plenty of experience with Alabama MMA fighters. A normal V3 fight card usually carries more than its' fair share of amateur Alabama fighters. In fact - V3 Fights crowned a brand new Light Heavyweight Champion just this past weekend; Malcolm Hardmon from KageFit -Opelika, Alabama.
As can be expected from a V3Fights card; the fight card for Saturday is stacked with several of Alabama's most talented, experienced, and dedicated MMA fighters. Scheduled to fight are Triad Martial Arts fighter Matt Ward vs Tyler Smith and Triad fighter Stephen Wilhite vs Shawn Allen. Florence will be well represented with Flatline MMA fighters Brandon Rhodes, Dustin Taylor and the main event Dustin Rhodes vs Anthony Lemon. Several other fights are on the card and the card will be released later this week.
