Ultimate Victory Challenge live mixed martial arts (MMA) cage fights EXPLODES into 2012 with title tripleheader, including titles in the heavyweight, welterweight, and flyweight divisions.
Featuring a triple header of title fights, the roof of the Ohio Building will be blown off. First up, former heavyweight champion Tim “Fatboy” Dunn (7-2 / fighting out of Portsmouth, OH) will look to regain a title that he feels is rightfully his when he takes on knockout artist and toughman veteran Larry “SuperFreak”
The main event slot, however, is still up for grabs, as UVC fans will decide which fight they want to end the night with a bang. To vote, fans can go to the UVC Facebook page (www.facebook.com/
The UVC 19 card is not top-heavy, though, as some of the best amateur fighters that the Tristate Area has to offer will fill out the best undercard in UVC history. Fan favorites Scottie “The Dream” Weaver (5-2), Don “Night Night” Germany (3-0), Chico “The Ninja Assassin” Bays (5-3), top featherweight contender Jeff Smith (6-1), and former welterweight champion Hod Lundell (6-4) will be part of an entire card that will detonate on February 18. UVC fans will also be treated to some of the most exciting newcomers to make debuts in recent memory.
Media and fans are also invited to the full UVC 19 pre-fight press conference, which will take place on at 5pm on February 12 at the Ramada Inn and Conference Center (4900 Sinclair Rd., Columbus, OH 43229).
