WSOF 28 results: Video highlights, .gifs and more for ‘Moraes vs Barajas’ on NBC Sports Network. The latest event for World Series of Fighting (WSOF) took place earlier tonight (Sat., Feb. 20, 2016) inside Next Level Sports Complex in Garden Grove, Calif., airing live on NBC Sports Network.
WSOF 28’s main event was a Bantamweight title showdown where Marlon Moraes went for a record-tying third defense against top challenger Joseph Barajas (only former 155-pound kingpin Justin Gaethje has been as successful as a WSOF champion).
Did Moraes prevail or did Barajas knock him off in a huge surprise?
Moraes was content to fire off incredibly loud leg kicks until Barajas could take no more. His right leg buckled and referee John McCarthy waved it off as he crumpled at 1:13 of the first round. With his quick one-sided win, Moraes successfully becomes the second man to defend his title three times in WSOF.
