On Saturday, July 30, World Series of Fighting hosted its 32nd event from the XFINITY Arena in Everett, Wash.
In the night’s main event, long-reigning bantamweight champion Marlon Moraes rematched Canadian Josh Hill. The pair met previously at WSOF 18 in February of 2015, with the Brazilian Moraes earning a unanimous decision victory. Since then, Moraes had defended his belt twice, running his winning streak to 11. Hill, meanwhile, rebounded from the first and only loss of his career with four straight wins to earn another shot at the title.
The co-main event also featured a championship rematch as Brazilian Alexandre Almeida faced the man he defeated for the belt, Lance Palmer. The pair met in December of last year, with Almeida earning a decision victory and the featherweight title.
The action kicked off with a preliminary card stream live on Combat Press beginning at 7 p.m. ET, before transitioning to the NBC Sports Network at 10:30 p.m. ET for the four-fight main card.
