On Saturday May 14th Valor Fights 33 took place at Camp Jordan Arena in Chattanooga, TN with two of Middle Ga’s own debuting for the promotion. Valor Fights, known as the premier fight promotion in the Tennessee area has quickly gained attention for being one of the stables for talent in the southeast . Promoter Tim Loy pulls talent from all over the southeast, many who are on a rise in their respected regions and need to be put to the test against new faces.
Quinten Culpepper and Lathon Lawson displayed exactly what promoters love to see, professionalism at its best. Culpepper went to war with successful amateur prospect turned pro, Ben England of Birmingham, Alabama. Two rounds in Culpepper did enough damage for England to retire after the second giving Culpepper the win by TKO.
Lathon Lawso displayed center control that led to a sub attempt from the feet early in the first followed by an armbar less than a minute into the first round.
Congrats Quinten Culpepper and Lathon Lawson on your hard work paying off!
