He's basically run out of titles to fight for at 118.

This win will get him a decent world ranking at 122 plus it was an entertaining fight which means that HBO will likely be willing to feature him again.

Great to see Vic back on the winners list after some rather indifferent form. A loss would have meant close enough to curtains.

It would.

The win deals him in at 122 and gives him something to build on.

I wouldn't mind seeing Vic in with someone like Rafael Marquez.

The winner gets a title shot.

I thought he would prob move back down where he dominated, good to see a win at 122, hopefully a few big ones in him

With Mares, Nonentity & Rigo holding the major belts, 122 is suddenly a very tough division.

A Rafael Marquez fight would be the best matchup for Vic. A win would be a significant victory & set up a title shot.

It would also likely be a decent payday for both guys.

A loss for either of them would be an honourable way to bow out.

You guys think Vic has a chance at 122 to get a belt? I mean this was a good win but his opponent wasnt exactly a proven/experienced fighter.

It'd be a great fight. Love to see it.

Vic needs to model this final stage of his career on Jorge Arce. Namely, keep away from the younger fast guys (Mares, Moreno) who he has struggled with of late and focus on fighting regularly against chumps (the Arce model) and mixing it up with beatable yet still profitable names (Raf Marquez).
