Nate Richardson won his bid for the Fury FC featherweight title last Sunday, October 17, against the very tough Diego Lopes! Nate displayed incredible focus, used excellent boxing and evasive movement, and landed a number of devastating low kicks to slow down his opponent. The fight was an absolutely thrilling back-and-forth war for all five rounds, but Nate’s superior striking and defensive grappling helped him secure the judges’ decision.
A big thanks to Fury for the opportunity, and thank you to everyone that helped Nate prepare for battle! Congratulations, Nate – we can’t wait to see what’s next for him!
