World Series of Fighting 15 was supposed to feature a trio of title fights, but Melvin Guillard destroyed those hopes by missing weight. The main event pits middleweight champion Dave Branch against the favored, ex-UFC title challenger Yushin Okami. In the co-main event, undefeated lightweight champion Justin Gaethje faces Melvin Guillard in a 159 lbs catchweight contest instead of the planned title defense. The other title fight sees strawweight champion Jessica Aguilar battling Brazil’s Kalindra Faria, while Jorge Patino and Eric Reynolds open up the main card.
You can catch the live broadcast starting at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT on NBC Sports Network. The preliminary card is being streamed live on NBCSports.com and you can view the prelims here on Bloody Elbow.
