Apex Fights 13 heads to Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee this weekend, and along with multiple UMMAF national qualifiers, three titles will also be on the line at the event.
In the headliner, local favorite Billy Swanson (4-1) will square off against Justin Goodin (4-2) for the vacant Apex Fights heavyweight title. Swanson has won two in a row, including a submission over Sam McAlpin at Apex Fights 12 last year. Goodin looks to rebound from a loss against Gavin Walker in his last outing at Valor Fights 30 last February.
In the co-feature, unbeaten James Garmany (5-0) will defend his Valor Fights light heavyweight title against John Hall (2-0). Garmany has finished all five of his victories via knockout or TKO, including four in the first round. In his last outing, it took him just 51 seconds to dispatch of Travis Gregoire at Valor Fights 37. Despite being just two fights into his career, Hall has been impressive, with two TKO wins. In his last outing, he stopped Mike Thomas via strikes in the first round at Valor Fights 39 in December.
Also, David Robins (4-1) takes on Kyle Kohler (6-3) in an UMMAF qualifier. Robins has won three in a row, all under the Valor Fights banner. Kohler competes for the first time since 2011, when he was submitted by Matt Ward at a Sport Fight X event.
Lee Poke (3-1) and Jonathan Nichols (2-2) also square off for the vacant Apex Fights middleweight title. Poke’s only loss was to Garmany, and he picked up a win over Chris Butler in his last outing at Valor Fights 37. Nichols hails from Virginia and looks to build off of a win in his last outing in November.
