Josh Hudson (matchmaker) at Pyramid Fights had this to say about how this matchup came about…Wade Johnson Vs Jason Witt
… ‘Wade trains locally at Barata MMA in Searcy. We really wanted to do a huge main event for our second show. At 11-1 Johnson is close to the UFC, another win and that’s probably the case, especially if he’s able to finish a very highly respected Jason Witt. We wanted to give him his first opportunity in over 6 years to fight in Searcy.’
‘I have been following Jason for some time after working with his manager Joe Wooster a few times before. He’s very skilled on the ground and on his feet. He’ll push the action and will be looking for a big upset.’
