Mandel Nallo To Face Librarian for Victory Title
Canada’s Mandel Nallo will face Jake “The Librarian” Lindsey on December 23 for the Victory Fighting Championship Lightweight title. The VFC 55 event will be held in Topeka, Kansas and will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass.
Mandel Nallo (5-0) has torn through all competition in his five fight career having stopped each opponent that he has faced. The Tristar fighter most recently claimed the Elite 1 MMA Lightweight title in April with a quick submission over Shawn Wallace.
Nallo will face Jake Lindsey (11-4) for the VFC title. Lindsey was an impressive 9-0 before heading to the UFC for a short notice bout against John Tuck. Unfortunately, Lindsey went 0-3 in the big show including a submission loss to Nallo’s Tristar teammate Olivier Aubin-Mercier in 2014. Since his UFC stint, Lindsey has gone 2-1 and, most recently won the VFC Lightweight title by stopping Zak Bucia with knees and punches in May.
