Long Island’s undefeated featherweight Andre “The Bull” Harrison goes for World Series of Fighting gold this Saturday.
Harrison (15-0 MMA, 1-0 WSOF) is set to face the current WSOF featherweight champion Lance Palmer. The two will co-headline WSOF 35 at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York this Saturday.
Since signing to WSOF in December, “The Bull” extended his undefeated professional career to 15 straight wins. Harrison won his WSOF debut at the promotions first visit to New York City on New Year’s Eve. He submitted his opponent Bruce Boyington via first round rear naked choke.
Previous to signing with WSOF, Harrison was the reigning Titan FC 145-pound champ. Prior to that he was a frequent fighter for local NJ promotion, Ring of Combat.
Palmer (11-2 MMA, 4-2 WSOF) won the featherweight title in 2015 over former champ Chris Horodecki. The Team Alpha Male fighter lost the belt at WSOF 26 months later against Alexandre Almeida. Seven months later in their rematch, Palmer earned back the title via majority decision at WSOF 32.
This will be the promotions second visit to New York since it became legalized in early 2016. Their first card took place at the Theater at Madison Square Garden on New Year’s Eve.
