On Saturday, March 12, World Series of Fighting will host its 29th event from the Bank of Colorado Arena in Greeley, Colo.
Headlining the event will be a lightweight title fight between current champion Justin Gaethje and recent tournament winner Brian Foster.
Gaethje, a product of Grudge Training Center and former All-American wrestler at the University of Northern Colorado, is unbeaten through 15 professional bouts. The 27-year-old knockout artist has stopped 12 of those outings by strikes, including back-to-back “Fight of the Year” contenders against Luis Palomino in 2015.
The UFC veteran Foster also spends time training in Colorado at Factory X Muay Thai and MMA. The 31-year-old suffered a submission loss in opening round of the WSOF eight-man tournament in November, but due to injuries to other competitors, he re-entered the bracket. He stopped the aforementioned Palomino in the semifinals, before exacting revenge on the man who defeated him, Joao Zeferino, in the finals. The win earned Foster a guaranteed crack at the unbeaten Gaethje.
The preliminary card kicks off at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday. The main card will be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network at 10 p.m. ET.
The fighters hit the scales at 6 p.m. ET on Friday. A live feed and results appears below.
