The third event for South Carolina mixed martial arts promotion 864 Fighting Championship will take place on Saturday night in Greenville, South Carolina and the fight card will feature a bantamweight bout as John Sweeney will have his second fight in the promotion when he takes on Keith Lee on the fight card coming from the Greenville Shriner’s Club.
Sweeney (4-1) is coming off a stoppage victory at the inaugural 864 Fighting Championship card in January as he defeated Dave Morgan by strikes in the second round. The victory marked his second victory by TKO/KO and all of his professional victories have come by stoppage in the first or second round.
I had a chance to speak with Sweeney on Tuesday about his matchup on Saturday against Lee, the younger brother of UFC lightweight Kevin Lee. He spoke to me about his matchup in January against Morgan, having confidence as a fighter, and how his mindset heading into this matchup is “Seek and Destroy.”
