864 Fighting Championship

864 Fighting Championship: Fight III will take place on Saturday in Greenville, South Carolina and the fight card will feature a featherweight matchup as American Top Team fighter Carl Deaton III will look for his 13th career victory when he takes on Nathan Williams on the event coming from the Greenville Shriner’s Club.

Deaton III (12-3, 1NC) enters this matchup after having a title fight last year at Hoosier Fight Club against Jose Mariscal and that matchup being over-turned to a no-contest when Mariscal failed his post fight drug test, which Deaton told me he found out while he was hunting. It’s been six months since that matchup and he will be looking for his fifth win in his last seven fights on Saturday when he takes on Williams.

On Wednesday evening, I had a chance to speak with Deaton III about his fight in South Carolina at 864 Fighting Championship: Fight III. My complete interview with Deaton III is below and our conversation ranged from his reaction to comments Williams made to me last week about this matchup, growing as a fighter following the title fight in Hoosier Fight Club, and his being a Native American fighter.

864 Fighting Championship: Fight III will be available via an internet pay-per-view on the 864 Fighting Championship website.
