I'm excited and honored to announce that I've reached a deal with the UFC to feature Victory's events on UFC FIGHT PASS. This is a significant day for Victory and a historic day for our athletes, who now have access to a fan base of millions in countries worldwide. My deepest thanks go out to UFC for giving Victory and its athletes this incredible opportunity.”
Victory’s premiere on UFC FIGHT PASS will be January 29, 2016 with VICTORY 47: SMITH vs. MUTAPCIC, a three-hour live event culminating with a vacant men’s Victory FC middleweight title fight
VICTORY 47 will be shown exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS starting at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT. The card will feature the top two fighters in its middleweight division, Elvis Mutapcic and Anthony Smith, who will compete for Victory’s vacant 185-pound title in the night’s main event headliner.
Smith is coming off a six-fight win streak, with five of those coming inside the distance while Mutapcic has won seven of his last eight.
Stoddard said: “This is a fight between two of the very best middleweights outside of the UFC. We will announce the full card soon and I can’t wait to show FIGHT PASS fans what Victory FC is all about.”
