Las Vegas, NV — Closing out 2015 with a bang, World Series of Fighting (WOSF) 26, was live from The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan. Tonight’s main WSOF 16event featured Featherweight Champions Lance Palmer defend the WSOF World Title against Brazilian, Alexandre Almeida. Also on the card, Clinton Williams steps in for the injured Tyrone Spong to take Jake Heun in the Light Heavyweight division. Tonight’s fight card aired live on NBC Sports Network.

Here are tonight’s fight results:

 

Light Heavyweight (205 lbs) Jake Heun vs. Clinton Williams

Williams leads with a low kick that is answered with a left hook by Heun. Williams continues to chop at Heun’s legs but he’s throwing only single kicks, which legendary fighter and UFC Hall of Famer as well as WSOF commentator, Bas Rutten always says you shouldn’t do as it left him open for a big right straight. Heun is more hands than legs, while Williams has been almost all legs this round. Williams has taken down with a low kick when he went high and Heun takes side control with a knee-on-the-belly. Williams pops back up and Heun slips after throwing a high kick, but the referee calls time as it appears he kicked Williams in the back of the head. Williams is still chopping away with low kicks, but they are still coming one at a time, but leads to an overhand left that didn’t do much damage. Round one ends against the cage.

Round number two and they touch gloves and both men have thrown spinning back fists that haven’t landed. Heun goes for a head kick and his leg is caught as Williams lands in his guard. Heun scrambles back to his feet and continues to lead with his hands. Heun is looking to land a left high kick, but it’s not working for him as it looks like his left eye is starting to close after Williams fires off two big right hands. Heun leads with a right knee and delivers a one-two punch combination. Williams is thrown to the canvas and Heun goes for the ground-and-pound leading to a full mount, but Williams transitions his opponent to half guard and is avoiding the key lock as the round comes to an end on the ground.

Third and final round, Williams continues to dance around and his stamina is holding out after taking this fight on short notice, replacing the injured Tyrone Spong. Williams takes Heun down transitioning from a single leg to a double, but Heun pops back up, presses Williams against the cage and is looking for a double leg of his own. Heun goes for a knee to the liver, but Williams fights his way back to center cage. Williams misses an overhand right as well as a spinning back fist. Heun takes cage control with a minute left in the fight. Williams takes Heun down with a huge double leg as he ran across the cage and dumps him on the canvas ending the fight in half-guard.

Your winner by split-decision, Jake “The Honey Bear” Heun!

Bantamweight (135 lbs) Bekbulat Magomedov vs. Josh Hill

Round one and it Hill who strikes first, but Magomedov answers back. Each man is jocking for positioning against the cage, but Hill is aboule to defend Magomedov’s Sambo takedowns. Round one comes to a close as it was mostly a feeling out period.

Round number two and Hill is opening up a little more with a spinning back fist, but Magomedov is doing well at avoiding the strikes while Hill is avoiding the takedowns. The Russian is pressing the fight while Hill is fighting as he’s backing up. Hill is having trouble gagging the distance. Neither has full committed to the fight thus far. Hill takes cage control but the Russian gets off the cage quick. The finally let their hands go as the round comes to an end, each hoping to steal the second round.

Third round, this one is to close it out and as neither have fully committed to their strikes or takedowns, not out of laziness, but that both have amazing footwork, it seems this one is going to the judges. Hill is able to take Magomedov down with a powerful double leg, but the Russian is back up to his feet quick only to have his single leg stuffed.

You winner by split-decision, Josh Hill!

Featherweight (125 lbs) Robbie Peralta vs. Sheymon Moraes

Round one and if you blink, you always miss the featherweights. Both fighters are feeling each other out as Peralta is making his WSOF debut tonight and is gagging his distance, but Moraes is the only one connecting with punches to the body thus far. Moraes is landing some heavy kicks to the body leading to a one-two combination to the American’s face. Peralta lands a perfectly timed low kick to the Brazilian. Peralta has 15 finishes out of his 18 victories, 13 knockouts and two submissions. Moraes attempts a takedown on Peralta, but is stuffed allowing the American to take cage control as the round comes to an end.

Second round and both connect with a jab at the same time. Moraes typically has strong kicks, but is not using his feet much allowing Peralta to start attacking his body. Everyone is throwing a single kick, which is often considered a bad idea. Moraes has gotten his groove and is leading with his front kick before letting his hands flight. Moraes is setting up the body, lands a big left hook and knocks out Peralta in the second round.

Your winner in the second around at 3:21 by technical knockout, Sheymon Moraes!

Lightweight (155 lbs) Ozzy Dugulubgov vs. Nic Herron-Webb

Dugulubgov leads with a huge stomp kick and continues to lead with his feet. Dugulubgov uses an outside leg sweet to take down Herron-Webb as he fights out of half-guard. Herron-Webb is already bleeding over his left eyebrow, which could lead to problems later on in this fight. Dugulubgov has the Canadian against the cage as the gash looks to be opening up even more. Herron-Webb almost gets the reversal but the Russian was able to regain positioning with the cage being in the way. Referee Mark Smith stands them up and is having Herron-Webb meet with the doctor who gives him the thumbs up.

Round two, Herron-Webb bounces Dugulubgov off the cage to get a takedown, but the Russian quickly takes cage control then takes the Canadian down as Dugulubgov fights out of his guard. The referee stands them up again, but Dugulubgov gets another big takedown and drives Herron-Webb against the cage. The Russian is grinding him down against the cage, but the Canadian is looking for a gogoplata from against the cage, but  Dugulubgov pulls him off the cage as the round comes to a close.

Round number three and the pace has slowed but Dugulubgov gets poked in the eye as they finally let their hands start to fly. Dugulubgov throws a spinning back kick and Herron-Webb tells the Russian to bring it on, who says, “no problem” and gets taken down with yet another double leg as he is grounded into the cage, a familiar position for most of this fight. The referee stands them back up and Dugulubgov takes Herron-Webb back down. Unless the Russian makes a mistake, he should win this bout with his dominate ground game.

This one goes to the judges, your winner by unanimous decision, Ozzy Dugulubgov !

WSOF Featherweight World Championship (145 lbs) Lance Palmer (Champion) vs. Alexandre Almeida

Round one is underway and Palmer is keeping too big of a distance for a wrestler to attempt any sort of takedown. Almeida throws a round out kick and Palmer takes him down, but gets caught in an armbar, but breaks out and they are back on their feet. Almeida taunts Palmer and the champion is working his way inside-out on his striking. The American catches a side kick and takes the challenger down with a single leg, but is pulled into the Brazlian’s guard, who is fishing for an armbar. This round comes to a close with Palmer in top position.

Round number two and so far they are still on their feet. Almeida needs to set up his kicks with punches as all his leg strikes have been the cause for him being taken down. Palmer is the shorter fighter and is having trouble closing the distance, Almeida has driven the champion against the cage and has taken control of the fight.  Referee John McCarthy breaks up the stalemate allowing for the champion to throw a Capoeira kick. Palmer catches another kick and takes Almeida down with another single leg. Round two ends on their feet circling each other.

Third of five rounds and Palm throws a side kick but Almeida is letting his hands fly and continues to taunt the champion for being too far away to engage. Almeida starts letting his hands fly but Palmer closes the distance, takes him down again, but quickly stands up. Almeida is connecting more with his strikes as this round comes to a close.

Round four and we are entering the championship rounds. Palmer is hesitating in his attack, which should be frustrating the champion. Palmer is able to take down the challenger the champion is struggling from the top position, looking to take Almeida’s back but was unsuccessful in doing so as the round comes to a an end.

Fifth and final round and the championship is slipping away from Palmer as Almeida has been more effective in his striking as well as fighting off his back. Palmer takes Almeida down and the Brazilian slips out of the guillotine. Palmer has taken Almeida again and is now finally dropping punches and elbows from half-guard. The champion could steal this around, but is losing this scramble as the Brazilian has gotten back to his feel quickly. Palmer take Almeida down yet again, but is it enough?

Your winner by unanimous decision and NEW WSOF Featherweight Champion of the World, Alexandre Almeida!
