The Cannon Center for Performing Arts was turned into The Cannon Center for Mixed Martial Arts on Saturday night in Memphis, TN. V3Fights definitely lived up to the hype in their first ever all pro event. From the opening bout’s TKO, to the main event’s five round WAR, every fight had fans on the edge of their seats. No question, “Fight of the Night” honors goes to Wade Johnson and Craig Johnson. These two warriors showed both skill and heart and had the place rocking Saturday night. “Knockout of the Night” goes to co-main event fighter, Adrian Miles. He was able to finish his opponent with some brutal ground and pound in the third round. “Submission of the Night” goes to Harry Johnson. Although known as a stand-up fighter, Johnson was able to latch on a standing guillotine choke to his opponent in the first round and choke him out unconscious.
As the sport of MMA continues to evolve, one thing has remained constant…. Wrestlers seem to dominate the sport and make elite MMA fighters. On January 18, fight fans are in for a treat when former collegiate wrestler “Relentless” Craig Johnson steps into the V3 cage to face Wade Johnson in the main event.
