*MATT WARD SET TO FIGHT TYLER SMITH ON AUGUST 16 IN FLORENCE, AL*

Growing up, Matt Ward was always a shy and quiet kid, yet competitive and
athletic.  So after high school, he wanted to try something new and decided
to give mixed martial arts a try.  He found Triad Martial Arts and has been
there for eight years.  He has been quite successful so far and was
undefeated as an amateur and is 1-1 as a professional fighter.

On Saturday night, Ward will face his biggest test to date when he goes up
against Tyler Smith from Memphis, TN.  Smith is also 1-1 as a pro, had over
twenty five amateur fights, and is one of the most athletic fighters in the
region.  When asked about this fight, here is what Ward had to say:

“My opponent seems very explosive and fearless.  He’s not afraid to
get in
your face and go for the win.  I feel like I’m the more technical fighter,
but he has fight experience on me.  I’d like to win this fight however I
can whether it be submission, knockout, or TKO, it doesn’t matter, but I
would like the finish.  I don’t trust judges.  My strength as a fighter is
my ground game, but I’m feeling comfortable on my feet these days.  I’m
extremely excited to have this opportunity.  I’ve been trying to get on V3
for a year now.    I have no ill will towards my opponent, he’s a
competitor as am I.  After the fight I will shake his hand and thank him
for the opportunity.  As far as my prediction on the fight, I’ll just say
second round TKO.”

This fight is an early candidate for “Fight of the Night.”  Fight
