Justin Gaetje returns to the cage this Friday night, defending his World Series of Fighting lightweight title against Luis Palomino in the main event of WSOF 23.
Set for the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, the main card will air live on NBC Sports Network.
Gaethje scored a victory over Palomino back at WSOF 19, but officials decided to grant the veteran an immediate rematch.
Along with Gaethje-Palomino, WSOF middleweight champion David Branch will face Teddy Holder in the finals of the light heavyweight tournament. The winner will be crowned the new champion.
Other planned main card fights include Timur Valiev vs. Tito Jones, Ben “Phoenix Jones” Fodor vs. Roberto Yong and Brian Foster vs. LaRue Bentley.
