Just a few weeks out from its December 7th event in Vancouver, British Columbia, World Series of Fighting has announced that Rick Glenn will not fight for the promotion’s inaugural featherweight title. As a result, undefeated prospect Lance Palmer has agreed to step in and will fight Georgi Karakhanyan for the belt.

A press release from the WSOF disclosed that Glenn has withdrawn due to personal reasons.

“I’m very excited to start this next chapter of my career,” said Palmer, who is a four-time All-American wrestler .  “To be able to come in and fight for a title in a top promotion is a great honor, and I’m looking forward to putting on a great show for the fans.”

Palmer (7-0) is coming off a split decision win over Jared Downing in June, while competing for the Resurrection Fighting Alliance. The 25 year-old, Team Alpha Male member turned pro in 2011.

Karakhanyan (22-3-1) made his WSOF debut in September and tapped out Waylon Lowe with a first round, guillotine choke. The 28 year-old veteran has won 8 straight bouts.

“It is unfortunate that Rick had to pull out of the fight,” said Karakhanyan. “As professional, my job is to adapt and be prepared for anything and everything. I’m really excited to fight.  Don’t matter who it is, I just want to fight. Lance Palmer is a tough opponent, and I’m looking forward to beating him for the belt!”
