World Series Of Fighting 5 took place last night on NBC Sports and we’ve got all the results for you below.
In the main event of the evening Andrei Arlovski got back to winning ways with a unanimous decision victory over Mike Kyle.
The meat of this fight came in the opening round when first Arlovski was floored by a leaping left hook from Kyle, then later Arlovski returned the favor by dropping Kyle with a right hook.
Arlovksi put in the better work in the second round, but Kyle was gaining an edge in the third so it was down to the judges to separate them, and they favored the former UFC heavyweight champion (29-28 x3).
Only one of the middleweight semi-final bouts went ahead as the Elvis Mutapcic Vs Jesse Taylor had to be cancelled at the last minute after it emerged that Mutapcic had used prescription medication that had not been approved prior to the fight.
Despite that blunder the other bracket of the tournament did go ahead with Dave Branch securing a comfortable decision win over Danillo Villefort, scoring with some strikes, but largely using his wrestling to overpower his opponent on the mat.
Derrick Mehmen KO’d Rolles Gracie mid-way through the second round of their fight and it sparked one of the most bizarre post-KO reactions we’ve seen in the cage for quite some time.
After being blasted by an overhand right the momentum almost seemed to spin Gracie around 180 degrees. To all intents and purposes Gracie was knocked out with his head slumped down toward his chest, but his body hadn’t quite got the memo yet and took a few unsteady steps forward before slumping lifelessly to the canvas.
Finally, in the main card opener Georgi Karakhanyan took out Waylon Lowe with a first round guillotine choke.
