World Series Of Fighting 23 took place last night and we’ve got all the results for you below.
In the main event Justin Gaethje successfully defended his lightweight title in a hard-hitting rematch with Luis Palomino.
Palomino staggered the champion early in the first round, but Gaethje rebounded and floored his rival with an uppercut before the five minute spell was over. The battle continued in the second round and as both men looked to trade at close range it was Gaethje who clocked Palomino with a right hook that sent him thumping to the canvas, with a brief flurry of ground and pound strikes sealing the TKO finish with 30 seconds of the round remaining.
In the co-main event middleweight champion David Branch also became WSOF’s new light-heavyweight champion, takind down Teddy Holder,moving to his back and sinking in the rear-naked choke finish just 2.21mins into the fight.
