Bouts announced for WSOF 33
By Edward Carbajal
World Series of Fighting returns on NBCSN, Friday October 7 from the Kansas City Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Mo. Another card with two title fights and four other bouts makes for a stacked WSOF 33. The main event features undefeated Lightweight Champion Justin Gaethje (16-0) against Ozzy Dugulubov (8-2) and two division champion David Branch (16-3) puts his light heavyweight title on the line against submission ace, Vinny Magalhaes (14-7).
Also on the card recently signed Ashley “Gio” Gooch (10-4) making his WSOF debut against Shawn Jordan (18-7). Gooch and Jordan both have a high percentage of their wins by way of KO/TKO so their fight is likely to be a short one. The cards WSOF have been putting together throughout 2016 seem to be building up toward their end of the year event at Madison Square Garden.
