TNA broadcaster Josh Mathews (a/k/a Josh Lomberger) has been hired to call the Valor 38 MMA event that will takes place on Saturday in Nashville, Tennessee. “I have been looking for the perfect situation to try hand at calling MMA,” Mathews stated in a press release. “I love the genre, the athleticism it takes to compete as well as the passion of the athletes. I will do my best to provide the proper soundtrack.”
Mathews also spoke about David “Kid Kash” Cash, who will be fighting on the card. “David ‘Kid Kash’ is someone I have known since I was 22 years old, when I was just starting my career as a professional wrestler. I competed against Cash in a series of matches around the country. I learned so much from him and not only did we wrestle, but we traveled and trained together. David is a pit-bull while training and competing. It will be extremely exciting to call his fight and I wish him the best of luck.” Read the full press release at MyMMANews.com.
Powell’s POV: Mathews is listed as the current voice of TNA in the press release. The Valor 38 event will be broadcast on FloCombat via FloSports, which has been in the news recently for becoming the new home for WWN/Evolve pay-per-view events.
