An undefeated Team Alpha Male prospect will fight for the inaugural World Series of Fighting featherweight title next month.

Lance Palmer (7-0) has replaced the injured Rick Glenn against Georgi Karakhanyan (22-3-1) at WSOF 7 on Dec. 7 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, according to WSOF president Ray Sefo and executive vice president Ali Abdel-Aziz. The five-round title fight will serve as the co-main event of a card headlined by Anthony Johnson vs. Mike Kyle.

That was a quick replacement for injured Rick Glenn.
Pretty solid replacement too.

Good fight.

I don't think Palmer is ready for Georgi's hands.

You may be right about that but if Georgi isnt careful Palmer will take his ass down easily.

Both guys are probably on the UFC's radar.

I know back in April win Georgi fought Din Thomas it was on AXS TV and it was mentioned that he was probably on his way over eventually. His performance that right was less than stellar even though he went on to win a Unanimous Decision. Followed that win up nicely against Waylon Lowe finishing him in the 1st round.

Lance Palmer with a win over Georgi will definitely get some attention. He's already the RFA Featherweight Champion, trains with Team Alpha Male and has a very nice wrestling background.

This should be a good fight, well competitive at least.
