WSOF 24 took place tonight, and fans were able to watch a live video stream and obtain official results here on MyMMANews.com beginning at 5:15 p.m. ET (2:15 p.m. PT).
The event took place at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. In addition to two title fights, former UFC title challengers Jon Fitch and Yushin Okami met in the headliner.
It was a back and forth battle between the two former UFC title challengers but in the end the judges decided that Fitch had done enough to get the nod. He will now advance to fight Jake Shields for the now vacant title after Rousimar Palhares was stripped of the championship.
The main card shifted to NBCSN at 8:30 p.m. ET.
