The next installment of the Victorium will be happening in Hayes, Virginia on July 12, 2014 at the Abingdon Ruritan Center
The Victorium – Episode III will be an all pro show with a sizeable card full of recognizable Virginia fighters.
The Featured bout will be between Dustin Pague (11-9) and D’Juan Owens (9-7-1)
Pague is a veteran who has spent the last three years fighting for the UFC. He is most notably known for being a competitor on the 14th season of the UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter TV show. Owens, on the other hand, has won 2 of his last 3 bouts and is coming off an impressive win over Ran Weathers, a veteran in his own right with 34 fights under his belt. A collision between these two seasoned fighters should make for a very entertaining fight.
Other notable fights include Bellator vet Brett Glass (3-1) vs. Jon Hughes (2-3), 50 year old heavyweight Anthony Horn (3-7) vs. Bobby Sopko (0-2), recent VCSS KO of the Night winner Elder Ramos (6-5) vs. Mark Strickland (2-0), Hometown fighter Dusty Shaw (1-1) vs. Kyle Newson (2-3), and a fight between two young pros each coming off remarkable performances –Kenny Gaudreau (4-1) vs. Alan Stephenson (1-0) among many others.
It looks like matchmaker David Arvelo, of The Doombeard Report, has been able to put together a card that features fighters/schools/gyms from all over Virginia and beyond with great care and should provide constant action throughout.
Giovanni Lemm, a former fighter and now owner of the promotion, will be announcing and performing post fight interviews among all his other duties throughout the night.
The doors will open at 6 pm, the fights will start at 7 pm, and we will be there covering all the action and updating live results on Facebook.
