The featured preliminary bout of the WSOF 31 preliminary card on June 17 in Connecticut will be a heavyweight bout as Tyler King looks for his second straight victory as he will meet WSOF newcomer Lorenzo Hood.
King (10-4) is coming off a heel hook submission win at CES MMA 35 in April and the victory snapped a two fight losing streak. During yesterday’s edition of “The MMA Report Podcast,” King was a guest on the show to preview his fight against Hood and gave his thoughts on his opponent at WSOF 31 later this month.
“I feel like this is — all I am going to say. Patrick Walsh, my previous WSOF opponent, who has fought a whose who,” King stated on The MMA Report Podcast. “He is a UFC alum. An Ultimate Fighter alum. That was a much tougher matchup for me going into that fight. He is a good friend of mine. But I knew going into that, it was a much tougher matchup. Lorenzo’s record is full of lopsided records and debuts. My record is full of the toughest guys in the northeast and the world. I think that pretty much says it all.”
