TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Area fighter Grady Sue Hurley is undefeated as a boxer, but he says his bread and butter is mixed martial arts.

With an MMA record of 15-2, Hurley is already the Summit Fighting middleweight champion. On Saturday, March 3, Hurley will fight for the light heavyweight championship against Teddy Holder (9-4).

Every one of Holder's fights, win or lose, have ended in the first round.

"That could be good, and it could be bad," Hurley said. "He hits really hard, and so I'm gonna keep my chin down, and keep my hands up, and pray for the best outcome."

The bout will be the main event of a card at the Tupelo Furniture Market, Building Five.
