LIC Motorsports has gone main stream and offered a sponsorship to veteran fighter of the octagon Tyson Griffin for UFC 103. The fight is scheduled for this coming Saturday 09.19.09 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. The card is stacked and it's already a sold out arena.
Tyson Griffin (record 13-W, 2-L) will be going up against the very talented Hermes Franca (record 20-W, 7-L).
Tyson thoughts "Hermes Franca, outside from being a real nice guy, I think he is the most dangerous fighters I have fought yet. He has KO power in his hands and great jiu-jitsu."
Hermes thoughts "Tyson is an excellent and well rounded fighter who likes to push the pace. It should be an exciting fight."
This fight is big for both these lightweight talents (155lbs class); Tyson is coming off a win over Rafael Dos Anjos and a very close loss over Sean Sherk. Hermes just beat Marcus Aurelio after serving his 1 year suspension from "performance enhancing supplements". The lightweight division is getting stronger and more energetic as time goes by and these two world class athletes are the ones to watch come this Saturday night.
LIC Motorsports is proud to represent a world class athlete in a world class organization...
