With two successful events already in the books in 2015, Victory Fighting Championship
(VFC) will return to the Ralston Arena for the second time this year for an event stacked with Omaha’s best
talent. VFC 46 is set for July 25 in Ralston, Neb., and will feature some of Omaha’s hardest hitters. Headlining
the event, current VFC featherweight titleholder Ryan “Are You Ready” Roberts will take on UFC veteran,
Junior Hernandez. In the co-main event, TUF alum Abe Wagner squares off against a durable and dangerous
Travis Wiuff for the vacant VFC heavyweight title.
Ryan Roberts (20-11) is no stranger to Omaha and VFC. In 2012, Roberts defeated Josh Arocho for the VFC
featherweight title. Since then, Roberts has gone on to successfully defend the title against the likes of LC
Davis, Chase Beebe and Jeremy Spoon. After nearly a year away from competition, the Nebraska native is
making a return to VFC to defend his title against a game fighter in Hernandez. Currently riding a four-fight
winning streak, Roberts will look to shut down Hernandez’s striking game and keep the belt in Nebraska.
Junior Hernandez (17-6) is a UFC veteran who, in his last VFC appearance, earned a TKO victory over the
hometown veteran, Sean “P-Town” Wilson. Hernandez has become a familiar name in Omaha and through the
years has proven to be a formidable opponent for Omaha’s up-and-comers. In addition to his win over Wilson,
he also owns a TKO victory over Victory notable Drew Dober.
In the co-main event of the evening, Premier Combat Center’s Abe “Hurricane” Wagner returns to VFC after
nearly four years away to take on Travis Wiuff. With nearly a decade of professional mixed martial arts
experience, Wagner has gained tremendous experience with promotions such as Bellator MMA, Titan FC and as
part of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series. Wagner is looking to get back on the winning track and get a big
win in front of his home crowd.
Travis “Diesel” Wiuff is a veteran of nearly 100 professional fights and carries a record of 73-20 with one no-
contest. Wiuff had strung together five consecutive wins before dropping his last two bouts. The veteran is
hoping to right the ship by besting Wagner in his backyard.
These two match-ups will follow a stacked professional lineup including VFC fan favorites, Kassius “Killa”
Kayne, Alonzo “Zo Diddy” Martinez, Seth Bass and Dwight Joseph, as well as 13 amateur bouts.
