Georgi Karakhanyan became World Series Of Fighting’s first ever featherweight champion last night after he managed to catch Lance Palmer in a guillotine choke late in the third round.
Earlier, Jesse Taylor progressed to the final of the four-man middleweight tournament with a comfortable decision win over Elvis Mutapcic.
Nick Newell continued to impress as he took just 81 seconds to tap out Sabah Fadai with a standing guillotine, while the infamous Kalib Starnes helped silence some of his critics from years gone by when he knocked out Dwayne Lewis with a series of elbows from the clinch.
