“World Series of Fighting 15: Branch vs. Okami” goes down Saturday night inside USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida.
A trio of title tilts were slated to headline the card, until Melvin “A-Level Fighter” Guillard had to ruin it by missing weight by an astonishing 3.6 pounds…
Instead, only middleweight champion David Branch and strawweight champ Jessica Aguilar will put their straps up for grabs.
Branch meets UFC veteran Yushin Okami, while Aguilar faces Kalindra Faria.
Guillard now meets lightweight king Justin Gaethje in a non-title affair.
The prelims begin at approximately 7PM ET/4PM PT. NBC Sports Network broadcasts the main card live starting at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
