Most people start off the new year signing up for the gym, saving money on coffee and other New Years Resolutions. Nate Russell is starting off the year with a fist fight and a title shot.
Cage titans always brings the excitement to Plymouth Mass with some great matchups and this one should be a banger! Representing Fighting Arts Academy and bringing a 8-2 amateur MMA record and going 4-1 in his last five fights with a 90% finish rate overall. Russell is more than ready for this opportunity to reclaim his title he held before relinquishing it for a fight in New York. Now he's back and ready to take the belt back.
His opponent is a tough night out for anyone, Tyler "Butter Knife" Smythe, is also aggressive when it comes to the finish. Bringing a 6-3 record and finishing 5 of those within the distance, I don't expect the judges will be needed for this one.
