Frelow Replaces Injured Valiev, Meets Magomedov for Vacant BW Title at WSOF 35
By: Mike Sloan Mar 7, 2017
It looks like contender Timur
Valiev will have to wait a little longer to get a crack at the
World Series of Fighting’s bantamweight title. The Las Vegas-based
promotion announced Tuesday afternoon that Valiev has been injured
and thus removed from World
Series of Fighting 35.
Filling in for Valiev against Bekbulat
Magomedov for the vacant bantamweight crown will be Donavon
Frelow. After losing to Magomed
Bibulatov for the inaugural WSOF flyweight title in October
2015, the Wand Fight Team representative took a year off before
returning to beat Zeke
Enrique at Gladiator Challenge this past January.
WSOF 35 will be headlined by Blagoy
Ivanov defending his heavyweight title against UFC veteran
Jordan. The co-feature will see Lance
Palmer puts his featherweight crown on the line against Andre
“The Bull” Harrison. The action will go live on NBCSN beginning at
11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT.
The preliminary card, anchored by a welterweight scrum between
Nurmagomedov and Matt Secor,
will stream live on WSOF.com starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
