PFL 4 Results: Both Andre Harrison and Lance Palmer Snag Wins, Advancing in Tournament

It was a World Series of Fighting reunion in the PFL main- and co-main events, with former champs Lance Palmer and Andre Harrison pretty much picking up where they left off when the WSOF folded and kicking butt.

For the undefeated Harrison, who faced UFC and Bellator (and just about every other organization out there) vet Nazareno Malegarie, that meant three maddening rounds of sprawling and clipping Argentinean jiu-jitsu black belt with the occasional kick or punch. Look, Harrison is awesome, and comes from the local New York/New Jersey scene I used to cover, but would it kill the guy to find a finish?

Meanwhile, the main event was all about Palmer completely and totally dominating hapless Jumabieke Tuerxun on the ground. Apparently Tuerxun is Chinese, but the Russian kind, which reminds me of a Mongolian girl I know who looks Chinese but speaks with a Russian accent. Very trippy. Anyway, it took about two and a half rounds for Palmer to finally find the tap out, and it came via a neck crank.

So now Harrison and Siler and Palmer have all earned enough experience points to level up, and they can choose another weapon proficiency plus two more spells. Or something like that.

PFL 4, y’all.

WSOF signs champions Blagoy Ivanov, Lance Palmer to new multi-fight contracts

Just hours before their latest event, World Series of Fighting has secured the services of two of their champions.

The promotion has inked both heavyweight champion Blagoy Ivanov and featherweight champion Lance Palmer to new multi-fight contracts, MMA Fighting has learned.

Both fighters, according to WSOF president Ray Sefo, had one fight left on their contracts before signing their respective new deals.

“They’ve been great champions for us,” Sefo said, “and we wanted to keep them and re-sign them. We’ve been really happy with the way they’ve been progressing in their careers.”

Ivanov (13-1) headlines WSOF 35 this weekend against Shawn Jordan, while Palmer (11-2) competes in the co-main event against Andre Harrison.

The event, which will air live on NBCSN this Saturday, will also feature a vacant bantamweight title fight between Bekbulat Magomedov and Donavon Frelow.

The news is promising for the organization after recently parting ways with former bantamweight champion Marlon Moraes, as well as middleweight and light heavyweight champion Dave Branch. The future of both welterweight champion Jon Fitch (health) and Justin Gaethje (contract) is still unclear at this time.

Morning Report: Cody Garbrandt says Joseph Benavidez, Lance Palmer are now training with ‘the enemy’

Don’t count on catching Cody Garbrandt doing some cross-training at Team Elevation in Colorado.

The Team Alpha Male standout watched his teammate and former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw leave the camp and now more big names are testing the waters.

“F**k no. I would never go to Elevation,” Garbrandt told Submission Radio. “No, I wouldn’t, I wouldn’t go there. You know, [Joseph Benavidez and Lance Palmer] are out there and training with T.J. They have previous relationships with him so it’s whatever, but they’re going to come back and train with us in the team? I don’t know how well that’s going to go over.”

Garbrandt faces John Lineker Feb. 21 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but sees a date with Dillashaw sooner than later.

“I’ll probably end up fighting T.J., so I guess I’ll focus on this fight and I guess we’ll have to talk about that when it comes,” said Garbrandt. “You know, [Benavidez and Palmer] will continue to train with T.J., basically ‘the enemy’ and Duane Ludwig and all those guys, so I don’t know. I don’t really try to focus on that too much this camp.”

The undefeated Ohio native sounds most disappointed in Palmer, who he’s had in his corner for his past four fights.

“He’s from Ohio, he’s my boy,” Garbrandt said of Palmer. “He’s one of my good friends, but at the end of the day you’re going to go out there and help that dude? You know what I mean? You’re going to go out and help that dude that’s not even on the team? I understand they have a friendship and whatever, this and that, but I don’t feel comfortable with it. But hey, I’m focusing on myself. I’m doing what I need to do to win this fight and further my career, so that’s all I have to worry about.”
