2x and current MCC 170lb Champion
Victor (Super man) Moreno
To square off in Main Event against Fusion 185 Champion Tyler Vogel at
MIDWEST CAGE CHAMPIONSHIP 63
For the welterweight title Jan. 27th in Des Moines, IA
By Cameron Chrisp:
In what has been a somewhat lopsided war of words between Tyler Vogel and Victor Moreno, Moreno continues to show little interest in Vogel’s Facebook attempts to get under Moreno’s skin. Vogel, known for talking to his opponents, has had many words for the Champion and continues to make noise wherever he goes. Both fighters share a 5-2 record in their last seven bouts. Furthermore, these fighters share a 6’3 height, with Moreno showing a reach advantage of 77’’ to Vogel’s 72’’. All Vogels wins have been by ko/tko. Vogel is a newcomer to MCC and Des Moines; his only losses are to a highly skilled team Elevation fighter, Sonny Yohn, on 10 days notice, by choke, and Ian Heinisch (#3 Colorado), out of Factory X, by decision.
Vogel earned the Fusion pro 185 title in the summer of 2016 by KO in the first round. Vogel has his mind-set on taking a second belt with him when he departs. Vogel brings great conditioning, KO power and instinct to this fight. As a former University of North Dakota wrestler, Vogel’s wrestling and athleticism, which is similar to Moreno’s, is impressive. Vogel hails from Bismark, N.D. and predicts a “first round KO”. He went on to say Moreno should ‘’shine up my new belt and bring a blanket’’, which Victor explained later, “Vogel isn’t taking anything’’.
Moreno, now a two-time MCC Champion, is well-known in the Iowa area and has been for some time. Currently training at Elite Edge Training Center, Moreno shows a huge experience advantage in this fight with over 60 professional MMA fights, and is a Bellator veteran enjoying a 7 fight win streak in MCC events. Vogel appears to have the power advantage between the two; this marks Vogel’s second main event in his last three fights. Going back four fights, Vogel fought live on NBC Sports in a World Series of Fighting event. Although 2016 was Vogel’s best year of fighting to date, 2017 shows promise with a title fight for a second belt in combination with being a main event. This is a intriguing match-up..
MCC 63 Co-Main Event- Ago Huskic out, Ryan Stock is in, as a last-minute replacement, for Anthony Baccam
Stock fights out of Imperial Training Center in Rochester, MN. Stock shows an experience edge on paper; 40 pro MMA fights compared to Baccam’s 7. Stock started in MMA at 14 after the loss of his father; a year later, he was fighting professionally. When asked if he was familiar with Baccam, Stock stated:
‘’I don’t know a thing about him. I’ve watched some of his older fights but everyone is getting better and evolving.’’ Stock added, ‘’I don’t know what to expect from Baccam, I just know what I am capable of and that I’m coming to bring the fight to him and show my skills. Win, lose, or draw, I’m always hoping for war.’’
Previous to this fight, Stock has taken time ‘’to heal and improve.’’ This is Stock’s, a self proclaimed freestyle fighter, first fight in over a year. Both of these fighters have won three of their last four fights with Stock winning seven of his last ten. Stock shares training time under one of his coaches Logan Clark, a UFC veteran.
Requests for comment went unanswered by Baccam, but he is already well-known in MCC and the area. Baccam is on a two fight win streak in MCC and trains at Elite Edge Training Center. With consideration that both fighters are 3-1 in their last four, it appears to be a great match up, much like the Main Event. Considering this card was plagued with injuries, it leveled out well and resulted in great fights being made in the end, thanks to the MMA Gods!
