World Series of Fighting has finalized three new bouts to round out the company’s June event.
In the final bout of WSOF 10’s championship triple-header, WSOF women’s strawweight belt-holder Jessica Aguilar will defend her belt for the first time against Japanese veteran Emi Fujino. The title fight joins a middleweight main event between David Branch and Jesse Taylor, and a featherweight co-headliner between Georgi Karakhanyan and Rick Glenn, on the June 21 bill at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Also confirmed for the main card Monday was a lightweight matchup pitting former UFC contender Tyson Griffin against Luiz “Buscape” Firmino, and a showdown of featherweight prospects Lance Palmer and Nick LoBosco.
Aguilar, 32, captured WSOF gold in her January promotional debut with a first-round submission of Alida Gray. The six-time Bellator veteran is currently riding an eight-fight winning streak and has not tasted defeat since a controversial split-decision loss to Zoila Frausto Gurgel in September 2010.
Fujino will make her stateside debut at WSOF 10 after more than 10 years on the Japanese circuit competing for promotions such as Deep, Jewels and Smackgirl. The 33-year-old Wajutsu Keishukai product went 2-1 in 2013 and will look to rebound from a November decision loss to young phenom Mizuki Inoue.
