The good folks at MMA Futures will be bringing you almost 30 fights over the next two evenings through Fite TV as Dynasty Combat Sports: Ballyard Brawl Night 1 and Night 2 go down from the Haymarket Park in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Mixed in with some amateur action will be plenty of pro fights, with the final one being Bellator MMA and Ultimate Fighter veteran Dakota Cochrane going up against Scott Futrell.
Cochrane owns 31 career wins to date, including victories vs. the likes of former WEC champion Jamie Varner, Marcus LeVesseur, one-time UFC title challenger Joe Stevenson and Efrain Escudero. He fought top UFC contender James Vick to a split decision loss during his only fight on TUF back in 2012.
Since a pair of 2017 losses, Cochrane has won four in a row, including a submission back in December for DCS.
In Futrell, Cochrane will be tested, as the St. Louis fighter owns a record of 8-5. That includes three consecutive TKO victories, with two of them coming when the opponent tapped to strikes.
The other pro bout on the second night will see youngster Cody Land seek out victory No. 15 against Corey Roberts. Land has tested himself against some elite talent, going up against TUF alum Anthony Gutierrez, William Joplin and Sid Bice.
Roberts is 2-4 after fighting for four years as an amateur.
Concluding the opening night on Friday will be Kevin Croom vs. Darrick Minner. Both fighters own a combined 37 career wins, including 20 from Minner.
Minner, a Nebraska native, has gone 5-3 over his last eight, with Croom posting an even 5-5 mark over his last 10. Both of these men have headlined cards in the past and you can bet they’ll put on a show for the fans in attendance and watching around the world.
