Victory MMA 8: Bulletproof Saturday February 16th

Quebec’s #1 amateur MMA promotion returns on Saturday February 16th, 2013 for Victory MMA 8: Bulletproof at the Theatre Plaza inVMMA 8 Montreal. The event will be hosted by Ringside Report Radio’s Kevin “Big Tuna” McKough. A 16-bout card is set with four championships on the line including a Bantamweight title defense and new champions in the Light Heavyweight, Lightweight and Featherweight divisions.

The Victory MMA Bantamweight champion Kevin Chauvette will be featured in the main event defending his title against Dwayne Durel. This will be Chauvette’s first title defense since winning the strap at Victory MMA 5 in March of 2012.

The co-main event will determine an interim Light Heavyweight champion now that former champion Adam Dyczka is unable to compete due to injury. McGowan’s MMA/Victory Training Centre’s Chris Cleveland squares off against Gladiateur Fight Club de Sorel’s  Mathieu Langlais.

After coming up short in his first attempt at the Lightweight title at Victory MMA 6 in May of 2012 in an armbar submission loss to then champion Alex Morgan, who vacated the title after the bout to go pro; Big Country MMA’s Joe Elliott gets other shot. Elliot racked up three victories since the loss including a huge win over Rob Rivest. Elliot faces Team Barbarian’s Maxime Martens who has only one blemish on his record in six bouts.

Kevin Walker also came up short in his championship aspirations when he failed to defeat then champion Xavier Aloui at Victory MMA 7 in July. With Aloui out of the picture Walker gets another opportunity at the gold when he faces Thomas Sumantri of Fighter Dream Team. All championship bouts are scheduled for five rounds.
