Shamil Gamzatov vs. Louis Taylor Completes WSOF 32 Main Card

By Tristen Critchfield May 27, 2016

The World Series of Fighting 32 main card is complete with the addition of a middleweight showdown pitting Shamil Gamzatov against Louis Taylor.

The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the contest on Friday. Additionally, Hakeem Dawodu will square off against Marat Magomedov in a featherweight rematch on the preliminary draw.

WSOF 32 takes place at Xfinity Arena in Everett, Wash., on July 30 and features a championship doubleheader, as Marlon Moraes defends the 135-pound strap against Josh Hill, while Alexandre Almeida puts his featherweight title on the line against Lance Palmer. The main card will air on NBC Sports Network at 10 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT.

Gamzatov, 25, made his promotional debut at light heavyweight in January, when he stopped Teddy Holder 2:32 into the opening round at WSOF 27. The Russian is 10-0 in his professional career, with all of his victories coming inside the distance.

The 37-year-old Taylor enters the matchup on a five-fight winning streak. The former Strikeforce and Bellator talent was successful in his first WSOF foray, as he submitted Cory Devela in 29 seconds on March 12. All five of Taylor’s recent triumphs have ended inside of a round.
