Dustin Lampros is pretty good at mixed martial arts. So much so that the 30-year-old out of Kill Cliff FC has put together a perfect 9-0 professional record. In July 2022, Lampros topped the Shamrock FC mountain by knocking off Brandon Bell to capture the SFC Featherweight Championship. Since then, the fighter out of Delray Beach, Florida, has successfully defended his title and has taken his fight outside of the cage to the streets, where he seeks to expose sex predators.

Dustin Lampros, 561pc Fight the Battle Against Sex Predators in South Florida

Lampros has dawned the cowl (not really) and cape (again, not really) and has become the 561 Predator Catcher or 561pc. The undefeated featherweight utilizes the telephone area code for Palm Beach County in Florida where he operates for his superhero name.
“Scrappy” blogs his escapades on YouTube where he lures sex predators online into meeting with him in public where the police can apprehend them. The Shamrock FC champ works alongside the Chief Technology Officer Ryan Montgomery of the counter-human trafficking non-profit Sentinel Foundation to lure and trap the predators. Lampros has taken to social media to further his efforts using the handle @561cp on Instagram and the hashtag #ProtectTheChildren.

It is always good to see MMA fighters give back to their community. However, it is a whole other thing when they fight for them.
