Promotion officials revealed the final matchups for the six-bout
featured draw on Tuesday. WSOF 33 takes place at Kansas City
Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Kan., on Oct. 7 and is
headlined by a lightweight title tilt between Justin
Gaethje and Ozzy
Dugulubgov. The three-hour main card begins on NBC Sports
Network at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT.
After a seven-fight second stint with the UFC, Howard made his WSOF
debut on June 17, taking a unanimous verdict over Michael
Arrant at WSOF 31. Nurmagomedov has been victorious in his
first three promotional appearances, besting Jorge
Moreno, Danny Davis
Jr. and Matthew
Frincu in succession.
Jordan parted ways with the UFC following a decision loss to
Magomedov this past October; “The Savage” has not competed
since. The recently-signed Gooch enters the matchup on an
eight-fight winning streak, including back-to-back triumphs under
the CES MMA banner.
