Moroccan fighter Abu “Gladiator” Azaitar (13-1-1-1) squared off with “Mad” Mike Arrantin a welterweight tilt at WSOF 33 (Friday October 7), to earn a unanimous decision victory and score his 13th professional victory.
Arrant looked to secure victory early in the fight with a successful clinch against the cage against tentative Azitar. But his attempt only enraged the Moroccan and opened up Azitar’s overtly aggressive and forward striking, leading to the two men exchanging a flurry of blows. All throughout the 3 rounds, power and heaviness was coming from the Moroccan, despite impressively throwing these exhausting shots the entire fight. Unfortunately for Arrant his glimpses of success throughout the fight did not work in his favour earning Azitar the victory.
