Tim Loy got his start in mixed martial arts by working with the XFC, when it was a Tampa based promotion and was one of the people that helped that promotion put on events in the state of Tennessee.

Now Loy is the President of Valor Fights and he was a guest on The MMA Report Podcast earlier this week to discuss his start in the sport and the upcoming Valor Fights 30 event that will take place next Saturday at The International in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Along with discussing next week’s fight card, Loy talked about what fans can expect from the promotion in 2016.
