Under the direction of legendary kickboxer Ray “Sugarfoot” Sefo, the World Series of Fighting has become one of the top promotions in North American. While WSOF isn’t a real competitor to the UFC or even Bellator, they have a great stable of talent and their events are fun to watch.

On Friday, June 5, 2015, the WSOF will head to the Edmonton Expo Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, for World Series of Fighting 21: Palmer vs. Horodecki.

Originally set to feature a bout between WSOF Canadian welterweight champion, Ryan Ford, and, Yushin Okami, this event took a hit Ford had to withdraw due to an injury. But with two title fights still on the books, this card remains enticing.

Featherweight Prospect Showdown

Kicking off Friday’s main card is a tremendous bout featuring two top featherweight prospects in Hakeem Dawodu and Chuka Willis. Both fighters are undefeated at 4-0 and both have shown great potential. Willis has shown a more well-rounded skill set but Dawodu has finished all four of his opponents. This should be a lot of fun as both fighters are hungry to make a statement.

Heavyweight Title Fight

In the co-main event of the evening, WSOF heavyweight champion, Smealinho Rama, looks to defend his title against Blagoy Ivanov. Generally fight fans gravitate towards heavyweight bouts because of the heavy hitting, but Rama and Blagoy also bring solid submission grappling games to the table. Granted both fighters have knockout power, but the winner of this bout will be the fighter who can mix it up the best.

Featherweight Title Fight

In the main event of the evening, featherweight champion Lance Palmer looks to defend his title against experienced veteran Chris Horodecki. While Horodecki will have the luxury of challenging for a title in front of a home crowd, Palmer has proven to be a dangerous competitor. Training with Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, Palmer will be ready and fierce.
