My Thoughts On the WSOF 26 Main Card
Alexandre Almeida def. Lance Palmer via unanimous decision (48-47, 48-47, 48-47) – for featherweight title
Almeida used his range perfectly, which means this was not a terribly exciting fight. There were some big punches landed and a few takedowns but I think I dozed off for a few minutes. I was hoping to see the self-described Anaconda from the Amazon suffocate and eat his opponent.
Ozzy Dugulubgov def. Nic Herron-Webb via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
This was not a fun fight to watch for me. The exchanges on the feet were okay, but every takedown led to nothing being done on the floor. No punches, no submission attempts, just Dugulubgov resting on top of Herron-Webb. It kind of reminded me of how me and my girlfriend get intimate.
Sheymon Moraes def. Robbie Peralta via TKO (punches) – Round 2, 3:21
Moraes connected with a great hook, following up with a right sealing the TKO. I think we can all agree we like finishes. I take that same philosophy to the dinner table. I never take an entire pizza to a decision.
Josh Hill def. Bekbulat Magomedov via split decision (28-29, 30-27, 30-27)
Jake Heun def. Clinton Williams via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)
I like seeing people over 200lbs fight. The striking is hard and loud and every shot makes me cringe. This did not disappoint in those areas but I was hoping for a finish.
