The main event of tonight’s Valor Fights 32 in Knoxville, Tennessee will be a lightweight bout as Nick Gehrts meets Steven New on the fight card coming from the Knoxville Civic Coliseum.
Gerhts (5-2) took this fight on less than two weeks notice when Adam Townsend pulled out of the event and Gehrts was a guest on Tuesday’s edition of “The MMA Report Podcast” to preview his fight tonight against New. During his appearance on the show, Gehrts talked about his fight tonight and always being ready to take a fight on short notice.
“I always try to stay ready,” Gehrts said. “At any time, if you were to have the fight — I always feel that I can fight. Waiting on those calls and stuff. Getting those fights is how you get in the UFC faster.”
