WSOF 26: Nunez vs. Jordan Added To Prelims, Spang Out with Pneumonia

Dec 18, 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- LAS VEGAS – World Series of Fighting announced today the addition of a lightweight (155 pounds) bout between rising stars Johnny Nunez and David Jordan to the “WSOF 26: Palmer vs. Almeida” world championship event at The Chelsea inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Friday, Dec. 18, live on NBCSN, at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT.

Additionally, Andreas Spang, who was slated to face Shamil Gamzatov in a light heavyweight (205 pounds) WSOF26 preliminary card matchup, has withdrawn from the commitment after contracting a case of pneumonia, forcing World Series of Fighting to scrap the bout.

The 30-year-old Nunez (5-1) of Las Vegas is looking to rebound from a third round submission (guillotine choke) defeat at the hands of Joe Condon at WSOF17 on January 17. The loss snapped the Xtreme Couture product’s perfect record.

Jordan (3-3), meanwhile, is looking to notch his third consecutive win after earning unanimous decisions over Brian Thomas and Jordan Chandler on August 16, 2014 and August 7, 2015, respectively. The 25-year-old Jordan is a protégé of retired, former MMA star Marvin “The Beastman” Eastman.
