Victory officials today added six fights to the Victory FC 48 card, which culminates with the welterweight championship main event between Jason Jackson and Victor Moreno.
In a middleweight matchup Jordan Young (4-0) will take on Cameron Olson (3-1). A man on a mission, Young is making an immediate return to the Cage following his November 2015 submission win over Jaquis Williams. At Victory FC 48 he faces off against the hard-hitting Olson in a battle of two talented up-and-coming prospects. Both fighters are striving to reach the pinnacle of the sport and are looking to impress the combat sports with a decisive victory February 19.
In the 205-division, Rakim Cleveland (11-7-1) will face Jaquis Williams (6-4). Cleveland, better known as “The Boogeyman”, will seek his third consecutive win in a row when he squares off against Jaquis “The Predator” Williams who moves up to the light heavyweight division following a submission loss this past November to Jordan Young.
Jeramiah Deever (4-2) vs. Mike Estus (7-3) is set for a welterweight showdown. Deever will make his VFC debut following back-to-back submission wins over Jeremy Castro and Sean Huffman. Meanwhile, Estus suffered his most recent loss to UFC and Strikeforce veteran, “Viscious” Bobby Voelker. He will look to test the chin of the up and coming Deever and get back into the winning column.
In a featherweight matchup, Anthony Baccam (8-4) takes on Kamuela Kirk (6-1). Nicknamed “The Bengal”, Baccam looked better than even when he defeated Luis Saldana in his last performance. He wants continue that momentum when he meets Arizona’s Kamuela Kirk another young prospect that is on the radar of the big leagues.
Two battles of the bantamweights round out the Victory FC 48 card with a contest between Chris Dunn (11-7) and Justin Morrison (8-7) and Nate Endres (0-1) vs. Bryce McKeever (0-1).
Dunn is known in the MMA-community as one of the most exciting fighters in the Midwest. His endurance will put to the challenge when he steps into the cage with Justin Morrison. Morrison put on a fight of the night performance in his campaign to derail the powerhouse UFC vet Timmy “Psycho” Gorman. Although he came up short, his heart and will to win could never be questioned.
“Nice Guy” Endres fell short in his professional debut, after a number one state amateur ranking and undefeated start to his MMA career. Meanwhile, McKeever has found himself in an eerily similar position. As both fighters show a ton of promise, this bout is a must win for both.
