3 Title Bouts Headline V3 Fights 77

V3 Fights is back with another installment of action this weekend on FloCombat.

Watch V3 Fights 77 Live! 

On tap is an 11-fight card headlined by a lightweight title fight between contender Jonathan Williams and current V3 champion Ashton Kirby. The 19-year old champ is 6-1 with four of his wins coming by submission. Kirby is coming in as the V3 champ, but he most recently took a unanimous decision loss to Josiah Harrell for the Ohio Combat League Lightweight title.

Across the cage, Williams come in with an undefeated record as he looks to take the title away from Kirby.

There will also be two other title fights happening on the card as well. The first will be at flyweight between Logan Nelson and Joseph Tran. Neither fighter currently has the title so we will see a newly crowned V3 champion at the weight.

In the third title fight on the night, Welterweight Champion Paul Kimble will face off against Quadarrius McGinnis.

Where In The World Was Justine Kish?

When she steps into the cage this weekend, it will be nearly two years to the day since the last time Justine Kish fought. A bout with Ji Yeon Kim, who is now the #14 ranked flyweight in the world, ended in a split decision that Kish had thought she won. While the loss getting away was tough for Kish, a large part of the reason why was the same reason why we have yet to see her since early 2018.
