Lance Palmer was one of MMA’s hottest prospects not currently in the UFC but wasn’t ready for the UFC per his own words. And it seemed prophetic as Palmer would drop his first fight as a professional for the WSOF Featherweight Championship as Georgi Karakhanyan choked him out in the 3rd. TUF Alumnus Jesse Taylor and Kalib Starnes both took wins and Nick Newell continued his streak of one armed submission finishes with yet another one. The full results of the fight card are below.
