World Series of Fighting has finalized the fight card for WSOF 18 “Moraes vs. Hill.”
Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Cody McKenzie will end a six-week retirement to face Andrew McInnes on the “local feature fights” portion of the card, which will stream live on WSOF.com.
The promotion announced the updated card on Tuesday. The NBC Sports Network-televised main card emanates from Edmonton Expo Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, and is headlined by Marlon Moraes defending his bantamweight title against Josh Hill.
McKenzie retired a mere 24 hours after being finished by Beslan Isaev at M-1 Challenge 54 with a perfectly placed knee to the body, his sixth loss in nine outings. In addition, “AK Kid” is slated to compete again in Canada on March 21, when he takes on Ryan Machan at Halloween Fighting Championship 8; this time it will be the card’s main event.
McInnes, nicknamed “Andrewconda,” lost his professional debut to current UFC fighter Chad Laprise, but has since reeled off five straight wins via submission.
