Las Vegas-based promotion World Series of Fighting will be invading Municipal Auditorium Arena in Kansas City, Kansas, Friday night with another solid event of fisticuffs. Headlining WSOF 33 will be the lightweight championship between Justin Gaethje as he defends his title against Ozzy Dugulubgov over five scheduled rounds.

At Thursday’s weigh-ins, the main event combatants -- as well as the rest of the fighters on the marquee -- made weight, giving the show the expected green light. Dugulubgov was the first on the scale for the proposed title fight and the Russian-American nailed it. Dugulubgov, who has won three straight, came in at 154.9 pounds. Gaethje, meanwhile, one of the hottest young talents in the lower weight classes, weighed in on the money; “The Highlight” checked in at 154.6 pounds.

The co-featured bout will see former UFC fighter Vinny Magalhaes taking on David Branch for the promotion’s light heavyweight title. Magalhaes tipped the scale at 204.2 pounds while Branch came in officially at 204.8.

Also on the card, UFC veteran Jason High taking on fellow lightweight Joao Zeferino. “The Kansas City Bandit” tipped the scale at 160.9 pounds while Zeferino, who also fought in the UFC, came in at 160.1.
