Victory Fighting Championship returns to Omaha for VFC 58
Victory Fighting Championship, the leading mixed martial arts promotion airing on UFC FIGHT PASS®, returns to one of its favorite hotbeds in the Midwest.
VFC 58 will take place on Saturday, July 22nd at the Baxter Arena in Omaha, Nebraska, with a card that will feature some of the very best fighters on the organization's roster. The main event and co-main event for this card will be unveiled in the very near future.
Tickets for VFC 58 are available at www.ticketmaster.com.
The event will air live on UFC FIGHT PASS® beginning at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT / 6 p.m. PT.
This will be Victory Fighting Championship's second of three visits to Omaha in 2017. Back in April inside a packed Baxter Arena, VFC 56 saw the crowning of two new champions as undefeated top-tier prospect Raufeon Stots topped Rob Emerson to take the bantamweight title, and Brazilian star Yuri Villefort became the new welterweight title-holder as he knocked off Kassius Holdorf.
Omaha and Baxter Arena have hosted some of the VFC's most memorable moments over the past year:
VFC 47 (January 29, 2016) – Anthony “Lionheart” Smith captured the VFC middleweight title and punched his ticket to the UFC with a first-round TKO verdict over Josh Neer.
VFC 52 (July 16, 2016) – Maki “Coconut Bombz” Pitolo outlasts Kassius Holdorf to eke out a unanimous decision and claim the VFC welterweight title.
VFC 54 (December 9, 2016) – Kassius “Killa Kayne” Holdorf exacts his measure of revenge with a scintillating second-round knockout to take the VFC welterweight belt from Maki Pitolo.
UFC FIGHT PASS is available on: personal computers, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Amazon Fire TV, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android, Chromecast, Samsung Smart TV, LG Smart TV, Sony TVs with Android TV and Roku devices.
