The Main Event of WSOF 11 is for the WSOF Lightweight Title. Party time.

155lb Lightweight Championship Main Event Bout; Justin Gaethje (11-0) vs Nick Newell (11-0)

Round 1: Crowd is emphatically behind Nick, who lands a right hook early, answers with a kick to the body. Justin lands a leg kick that drops Nick momentarily, then the pair exchange right hands. Justin lands more hard leg kicks, and a knee while Nick tried for a take down. Justin lands a hard right hand that backs Nick up, then another hard right hand lands, Gaethje continues landing. Nick is bloodied, and misses a jumping knee and Justin lands intense rights on the ground, then Newell tries for a knee bar but fails and they both stand. Gaethje lands a hard right that wobbles Newell to end the round.

Round 2: Nick comes out with blood flowing all down his body where he eats an upper cut, but lands a right body kick. Gaethje lands a left hook then an upper cut to the dome of Newell, Justin is landing his left hand at will. It seems like a matter of time until the fight will end in Justin’s favor, who lands a take down and lands more shots, ref comes in to check the cut. Ref lets the action continue, and Nick lands a front kick but eats a hard right that drops him and immediately the ref waves the fight over.

Official Decision: Justin Gaethje def. Nick Newell via TKO (punch) at 3:09 of Round 2.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
