One to Watch at UFC Vegas 45: Victor Henry

Victor Henry (21-5) has given eleven years to professional MMA around the whole wide world.  Finally the UFC comes calling for “La Mangosta” for UFC Vegas 45: Lewis vs. Daukaus.  He’s had just two weeks to prepare for one of Bantamweight’s best outside the top 15, Raoni Barcelos with a record of 16 and 2.

Victor was born in South Gate, California in the shadows of downtown Los Angeles.  The streets were mean around where he grew up and quickly found out gang life wasn’t for him.  While playing outside with his friends a fight broke out across the street and as soon as Henry began running a stray bullet grazed his chest, thankfully causing a flesh wound.  He then found Tae Kwon Do and quickly developed a passion for kicking anything and everything.

The Professional debut came in 2010, after uniting with a pioneer of MMA fighting “The Warmaster” Josh Barnett (35-8) at UWF USA Gym in LA.  Eleven years later and fifteen finishes later, “The Mongoose” is perched at 21-5 set for an octagon debut at The Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.  It all goes down Saturday, 12/18, at 4 PM ET.  Part of the prelims of UFC Vegas 45.
