Jae Medders will be making his V3Fights’ debut on January 19 in Memphis, TN. He currently has an undefeated record of 5-0 and fights out of Wolfpak MMA. He will be making his V3 debut against kung-fu specialist, Law Purifoy (6-6).
Medders has played sports his entire life and credits athletics as the main reason of getting him through school. He received a football scholarship to Mississippi Delta Community College where he played quarterback. After football he was stuck with this feeling of “what now?” He saw a couple of Alan Belcher’s UFC fights and has always loved boxing, so he started training. Medders took his first fight after only training for three months and won via knockout and has been hooked ever since. After that fight, Medders met Tyler Hill and Tony Delahoussei and they have all been fighting and training together ever since. He wants to ride this MMA rollercoaster as long as he’s healthy and his family supports him fighting. Medders states, “I eventually hope to make it into the ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ house reppin V3 V3 V3.”
Medders knows he has a tough fight on his hands when he meets Purifoy who is a veteran of the V3 cage: “Law is very tough and a great guy and I have a lot of respect for him. I know he’s not going to give anybody a win. You have to earn it and I like that. I have nothing but respect for my opponent. I hope to put on a great show for everybody. I feel like this is my time to go out there and show everybody what I can do. Prove these naysayers wrong,” states Medders.
Medders is one of the new generation fighters that will be introduced to the V3 “Legion,” so get your tickets now and witness this future star in the making!
