A second title fight has been added to the World Series of Fighting 24 lineup, as Magomed Bibulatov and Donavon Frelow meet to crown a flyweight champion.
Set for October 17, the NBC Sports Network main card features Jon Fitch vs. Yushin Okami, WSOF heavyweight champion Blagoy Ivanov vs. Derek Mehmen, Nick Newell vs. Tom Marcellino and Vinny Magalhaes vs. Matt Hamill.
Bibulatov (9-0) is a 27-year-old from Russia who will be making his U.S. debut. Frelow (5-0) trains out of Wanderlei Silva’s gym in Las Vegas and has scored four submission wins.
“We are looking forward to crowning the first champion ever in our fast-growing and highly-competitive flyweight division, on October 17,” World Series of Fighting president Ray Sefo said “As two of the weight class’ most dynamic stars who have yet to be beaten, Magomed and Donavon have earned their respective places in this historic championship fight, and we are confident that the winner will personify what being a champion in World Series of Fighting is about.”
