David Branch fights Luke Rockhold at UFC Fight Night 116

World Series of Fighting returned to Arizona this past weekend with “WSOF 23: Gaethje vs. Palomino II”. The men and women of the decagon tore the house down with another night of packed fights, but it was Justin Gaethje who stole the show in the main event.

His win may not have been the flashiest of the night, but it sure made a hell of an impact. There was no question who won the bout this time around as Gaethje knocked Palomino out cold in the second round with just thirty seconds remaining in their fight. This was the second time in two fights Palomino was knocked out by Gaethje at “WSOF 19” in the main event.

The total disclosed payout for the event: $346,000

Justin Gaethje: $100,000 ($50,000 win bonus)
