WSOF 21 Adds Two New Bouts To Main Card
Lance Palmer returns to defend his featherweight title at WSOF 21 /

World Series of Fighting returns to Canada on June 5th for WSOF 21: Palmer vs. Horodecki. The main card has just received two new bouts in the featherweight and welterweight division. One match puts two undefeated prospects on notice with Hakeem Dawodu facing off against Chuka Willis. The second fight pits Mark Drummond against Michael Hill. WSOF 21 takes place at the Edmonton Expo Center in Edmonton, Alberta.

The two undefeated featherweights will kick off the main card which as President Ray Sefo acknowledges is a “pivotal night for six of their fighters.” Chuka Willis (4-0) is wanting to make a quick impression for the WSOF audiences and hopes to duplicate his last performance, which was a third round TKO over Travis Draper back in March. Hakeem Dawodu is also (4-0) and a rising star under the WSOF banner. The Muay thai based striker has notched victories in all four of his WSOF performances. With a win it’s possible that we may see “Mean” next in line for a piece of the 145 strap.

Mark Drummond (7-2) is an Edmonston product who lost his promotional debut, but made good on his return with a third round finish back in February. He will face Mike Hill (7-3) in a swing bout that will air on NBCSN as long as time permits. Hill is undefeated under the WSOF banner but did lose his last fight outside of the promotion. This should be a very solid fight in the 170 division.

Jose Rodriguez (7-3) steps in for the injured Mukai Maromo against Stephen Beaumont (7-2) in a preliminary match. The fight will be at an agreed upon catchweight at 165 pounds. Rodriguez was supposed to face Maromo back in February and Beaumont originally back in WSOF 14. The total card for WSOF 21: Palmer - Horodecki is listed below. The WSOF 21: Palmer vs. Horodecki main card airs live from the Edmonton Expo Centre on NBCSN, beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, while preliminary bouts live on
