You may have been too busy watching UFC Fight Night 42 to even notice there was an event promoted by World Series of Fighting (WSOF) last Sat. night (June 7, 2014) inside Edmonton Expo Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, as the upstart promotion continues to expand globally.
WSOF Canada 2: "Lewis vs. Loiseau" featured former UFC middleweight title challenger David Loiseau against Dwayne Lewis, after Ryan Ford had to bow out of his welterweight championship bout against Bristol Marunde due to a shoulder injury.
Lewis was awarded the unanimous decision victory against Loiseau, in a fight that wasn't very entertaining. The former UFC star was mixing up his striking in the opening round, but failed to trouble his counterpart with accurate shots.
The fight was fairly uneventful throughout, as Lewis used his takedowns to secure the headliner on all three scorecards.
A shot at the bantamweight championship was on the line on the main card, as former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 18 contestant Josh Hill knocked out Mike Adams with a vicious right hand that left the latter out cold. The two 135-pound combatants were engaging in a hotly contested scrap until the victor sealed the deal.
Hill will now meet Curtis Brigham for the inaugural title at a later date.
Another UFC veteran was in action as well, as heavyweight Tim Hague returned to winning ways after stopping Matt Baker in the first round. Coming into his fight with a sizable weight advantage, "Thrashing Machine" landed a huge uppercut followed by a right hand which did the deed, despite Baker's protests.
