Victory FC 55 results: Dakota Cochrane taps Jake Lindsey in opening minute

Dakota Cochrane needed nearly 14 minutes to finish Jake Lindsey via submission earlier this year. At Victory FC 55, he needed just 53 seconds to repeat the feat.

The rematch of the January contest served as the main event of Friday’s Victory FC 55 event, which took place at Kansas Expocentre in Topeka, Kan. The night’s main card aired on UFC Fight Pass.

Cochrane was aggressive to start the fight, scoring with a big left hand and diving in for a takedown to take the action to the floor. Lindsey immediately looked to work his way back to his feet, but Cochrane latched on to his neck and fell to his back, closing guard and squeezing to finish the fight in the opening minute.

In the night’s co-feature VFC heavyweight champ Daniel Gallemore (6-3) defended his title for the first time, finishing Derek Bohi (7-5) in the opening round with strikes.

it was champ Gallemore who pushed forward immediately with strikes, defending Bohi’s takedown attempts and rattling in strikes from distance. Bohi countered with a barrage of big uppercuts in tight, but Gallemore weathered the storm and fired back with his own massive shots. Bohi crumpled in the face of the shots, and Gallemore followed to the canvas to finish the fight on the floor.

The whole process took 94 seconds.
