World Series of Fighting returns Saturday Night from Verona, New York with a 12 fight card headlined by 3 WSOF Title Bouts. Not really many fights on this card that I like but there is one that does stand out to me and I am going to take advantage of it. Since I will be playing it, I figured we might as well share it with all of our Spooky Express readers and let everyone reap the reward.
WSOF Featherweight Title Fight – Lance Palmer vs. Andre Harrison
The second fight I like is Lance Palmer and Andre Harrison for the WSOF Featherweight Title. Lance Palmer is a product of Team Alpha Male, for those that aren’t familiar that is the same gym that has produced Urijah Faber, TJ Dillashaw, Cody Garbrandt, Joseph Benavidez and Paige Van Zant. Palmer is 11-2 overall and 4-2 under the WSOF banner. Palmer won the WSOF Featherweight Title in his rematch against the person he lost his title to, Alexandre de Almeida.
Andre Harrison is one of the hottest prospects in all of MMA. Harrison is 15-0 in his career and 1-0 in WSOF. Harrison has some very credible names on his resume including former Bellator Vet Alexandre Bezerra, former TUF 14 Season Competitor and 9 fight UFC Vet Steven Siler, former Bellator Vet and current UFC Fighter Des Green, former Strikeforce and UFC Vet Kurt Holobaugh, TUF Season 12 Competitor Jeff Lentz and former TUF Season 18 Competitor and Bellator and WSOF Vet Cody Bollinger. This guys has beat everyone they have put in front of him. He now earns a title shot and takes on Lance Palmer, who is probably the toughest opposition he has ever faced.
Harrison is peaking at the right time and is coming into his prime. He has showed time and time again that he can contend with the best of the best in MMA. He has been successful at WSOF, Titan FC and Ring of Combat. I think he has the skills to beat Palmer in a 5 round war! I look for this fight to go the distance and Harrison to earn a victory!
