The main event of Valor Fights 32 in two weeks in Knoxville, Tennessee will be a catchweight bout of 150 pounds as former training partners will meet as Steven New takes on RFA veteran Adam Townsend.
New (5-1) enters this fight on a four fight winning streak and all of those wins have come by submission. On Tuesday’s edition of “The MMA Report Podcast,” New explained how training with somebody and fighting them on fight night are two different things.
“I am completely different inside training than I am inside the actual fight,” New said. “Training I guess, I am just there trying to learn. And once you are in the cage, it’s a whole new, different ball game. Being able to train together has nothing to do with us fighting. Two different levels there.”
