The World Series of Fighting 7 card is now set, with four bouts to air on NBC Sports Network.
In the main event, Lance Palmer – a member of Team Alpha Male – takes on Georgi Karakhanyan for the vacant featherweight title.
The original main event between Mike Kyle and Anthony Johnson was called off on Thursday after Kyle suffered an injury.
“I’m as disappointed as anyone that we’re forced to cancel this fight, but Mike just could not compete with his broken toe, and we simply could not find a suitable opponent for Anthony on such short notice,” World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo said. “That said, we are fortunate that we still have a fantastic championship matchup between Georgi Karakhanyan and Lance Palmer that will now serve as our main event, and I think fans are still going to enjoy an incredible fight card.”
