Quickly becoming one of the top lightweight prospects outside the UFC, Justin Gaethje added another knockout victory to his resume at World Series of Fighting 6, stopping Dan Lauzon in the second round. He remains perfect in his young MMA career at 10-0, including wins over Drew Fickett, Gesias Cavalcante, and Brian Cobb.

Earlier this year in March, Gesias Cavalcante lost to Gaethje after a cut forced a doctor stoppage early in the first round at WSOF 2. He rebounded with an upset win over UFC-veteran, Tyson Griffin, stopping him in the third round via TKO.

Ultimate Fighter 18 alum, Cody Bollinger looks for redemption in the World Series of Fighting after being kicked off the show for failing to make weight in his quarterfinal match-up. Officially, he’s won six out his last seven fights, with his only loss coming in the quarterfinals of Bellator’s season seven featherweight tourney to Shabulat Shamhalaev by first round TKO.

Tyson Nam put himself on the MMA map  when he knocked out Bellator’s bantamweight champion, Eduardo Dantas in the first round at a Shooto: Brazil event in August of last year. He wasn’t able to keep the momentum rolling at World Series of Fighting 2, suffering a first round knockout to Marlon Moraes.
