Every so often, a fighter wins in such devastating fashion that they can earn a title shot just because of their previous fight. That just might be the case for Luis Palomino.
Palomino (23-9) looked dominant over the previously-undefeated Lewis Gonzalez and may have earned himself a WSOF lightweight title shot because of his finish.
Palomino was generally the aggressor to start, but Gonzales’ agility made it difficult for his opponent to land square shots in the beginning of the match.
Gonzales tried to work the fight to the mat as much as he could, and finally was able to secure a takedown, but Palomino jumped right up and continued to punish his opponent on the feet. Palomino eventually devastated his opponent with stuff punches before a high kick led to a clean knee land flush. A pair of punches on the ground sealed the result and Palomino was victorious.
In the night’s co-feature, Ronny Markes (15-3) looked strong against Cully Butterfield (13-4) and easily won by unanimous decision.
