Orville Smith is dealing with the calm before the storm right now. Orville is looking to give the performance of his life on tonight (Oct.10) when he will be in the biggest fight of his young career as he faces off with Matt Jaggers on Showtime’s ShoXC card at the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana. At 6-0 and training with a camp that includes UFC veterans Chris Lytle and Jake O’Brien the future is shining bright for Orville. While he knows he’s in the game to one day earn a belt around his waist, Orville is putting that on the back burner for now. He realizes his fight with Jaggers is the first priority and knows it is best to take things one fight at a time.

PRO MMA: What do you know about your opponent Matt Jaggers and have you had a chance to review his tapes?
Orville: I haven’t seen any video on him. I couldn’t find any. I’ve heard he’s got some good ground and pound and that’s a big part of his game.
