In this occasion, Lindsey will come home in Manhattan, Kansas. He will feel the joy of fighting in the home town. This of course gives him precious advantage in the return matchup against Cochrane. Back in January, he suffered from the loss at VFC 47. That's why this rematch will be a bath blood for him. Lindsey attained his lightweight title at VFC 50 when winning over Zak Bucia in the third-round with TKO.
Cochrane, in the other side, is pretty firm for this rematch. Since his winning over Lindsey, he has won 3 straight bouts. The improved morale will be hard to beat even though Lindsey gets the hometown advantages.
It will not be an easy task for Lindsey to regain his lightweight title at VFC 55. We should remember that Tristar Montreal, the rising talent, was out of the board because of inevitable injury.
This is the grand finale of VFC #3 Shows 30Days campaign which has been awaited by the fans. For those who have been expecting this event, keep in mind that you need to have UFC Fight Pass account to watch it live. VFC 55 will be streamed live on the respective side right from the inside of the Kansas Expocentre in Topeka, Kan. The bout will be started at 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT.
