The fight card for next month’s Valor Fights 46 event in Nashville is coming together, as the night’s bouts will be highlighted by a pair of No. 1 contender’s matchups for the promotion’s vacant pro featherweight title.
Nathan Williams (5-3) will square off against Cromwell Stewart (2-1-1) in one bout, while Edward Massey (4-1) faces Jacob Kilburn (3-1) in another. The winners will then square off later in the year for the Valor Fights featherweight title.
Williams hails from Georgia and has competed almost exclusively for the NFC promotion in his career. Most recently, he submitted Calvin Miller in the first round at NFC 99 in September. He’s currently ranked as the No. 8 pro featherweight in Georgia by Tapology.
Stewart made a return to fighting last year after a nearly two year layoff. After a draw against Kenny Hill at Valor Fights 34, he picked up a third round TKO win over Sawyer Rich at Valor Fights 38 last November.
Massey started his career with four straight wins including three under the Valor banner. Most recently, he dropped the first bout of his pro career, as he lost a decision against Varon Webb at Conflict MMA 43 in June. He’s currently ranked as the No. 4 pro featherweight in Tennessee by Tapology.
Kilburn also recently suffered the first loss of his pro career, as he was submitted by Ruben Warr at Hardrock MMA 92 in September. Prior to that, all three of his wins were via stoppage. He’s currently ranked as the No. 12 pro featherweight in Tennessee by Tapology.
