World Series of Fighting is slated to invade Edmonton, Alberta, on June 5 with the promotion’s 21st event. The organization on Wednesday announced two more bouts for the NBCSN-televised WSOF 21 main card, joining the previously announced championship doubleheader.
Hakeem Dawodu, an undefeated featherweight out of the Champion’s Creed MMA in Calgary, will square off against Chuka Willis in one of the just-announced bouts. Dawodu has knocked all four men he’s faced as a pro -- all inside the WSOF cage -- and looks to keep his streak rolling against “The Lion King.” Willis, also 4-0, has scored two straight stoppages of his own, but this will be his WSOF debut.
The other matchup is a welterweight swing bout between Edmonton local Mark Drummond and Michael Hill. Drummond has won two in a row, with his most recent being inside the WSOF cage, where he knocked out Spencer Jebb. Hill, from British Columbia, had won two consecutive bouts before he ran into Bristol Marunde in March.
WSOF also announced that Jose Rodriguez will fill in for the injured Mukai Maromo in a prelim bout against Stephen Beaumont. The match will be fought at a catchweight of 165 pounds.
