On Saturday, Sept. 13, World Series of Fighting hosted its 13th event from the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, Penn.
In the night’s main event, bantamweight champion Marlon Moraes took on Ultimate Fighter veteran Cody Bollinger in a 147-pound catchweight. Moraes was originally expected to defend his 135-pound title against Josh Hill at the event, but Hill was forced out with an injury just two weeks prior to the event. The 26-year-old Moraes had reeled off seven straight wins heading into the bout, including five straight in the WSOF cage. Bollinger, meanwhile, had earned three straight wins since falling short in his lone Bellator MMA appearance. He was famously cut from TUF after missing weight, but had rebounded with two wins under the WSOF banner.
The co-main event featured a pair lightweight prospects as Keon Caldwell squared off with Ozzy Dugulubgov. Caldwell looked to get back in the win column after being submitted by recent title challenger Nick Newell in his last outing. Dugulubgov was also looking to get back on track, having fallen via split decision to Jonathan Nunez in his most recent WSOF appearance.
The 10-fight event kicked off Saturday with six preliminary card bouts streaming live on the promotion’s website starting at 6 p.m. ET. The four-fight main card aired live on the NBC Sports Network at 9 p.m. ET.
