WSOF 26 Video Highlights: Alexandre Almeida vs. Lance Palmer

The World Series of Fighting was back in Las Vegas on Friday, Dec. 18, as the promotion made its first trip to The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan.

In the night’s main event, featherweight kingpin Lance Palmer put his belt on the line against Brazilian Alexandre Almeida. Palmer entered the bout fresh off a dominant submission victory over Bellator and WEC veteran Chris Horodecki in June. The 27-year-old had tasted defeat only once in his 11-fight career. Almeida, meanwhile, was coming off a first-round finish of his namesake, Saul Almeida, in his promotional debut in October. The former Jungle Fights standout had reeled off four straight wins leading into the title affair.

The night’s main card was littered with veterans of The Ultimate Fighter, including Nic Herron-Webb, Josh Hill and Jake Heun, as well as former UFC fighter Robbie Peralta.


The action began with four preliminary-card bouts airing live on Combat Press at 7 p.m. ET, before transitioning to the NBC Sports Network at 9 p.m. ET for the five-fight main card.
