Victory Fighting Championship – VFC 55 results on UFC Fight Pass
Victory Fighting Championship holds VFC 55 tonight with the six-bout main card taking place live on UFC FIGHT PASS from the Kansas Expocentre in Topeka, Kansas.
At the top of the marquee is the return engagement between Jake “The Librarian” Lindsey and Dakota Cochrane. This will be a non-title, five-round superfight in the welterweight division as the two square off for a second time following Cochrane’s third-round submission victory at VFC 47 back in January.
Lightning would strike again as Cochrane scored a first round guillotine submission win over the former UFC fighter.
Daniel “Big Kansas” Gallemore (5-3) put his heavyweight belt on the line against challenger Derek “Marshmallow” Bohi (8-4) in the co-main event. Gallemore successfully defended his title with a first round TKO win.
Victory Fighting Championship’s #3Shows30Days campaign concludes with VFC 55 in Topeka after previous stops in Waterloo, Iowa, and Omaha, Nebraska.
In the opening contest on the main card on UFC Fight Pass, Kenny Licea defeated Gary Westphal via first round submission. Not only did Licea win with a rear-naked choke, but he put “Sharknado” to sleep. Impressive win.
