Brandon Hempleman picked up a big win Saturday night at World Series of Fighting 12, posting a unanimous decision over former Olympic wrestling bronze medalist, Alexis Vila!!!
The bout was contested entirely on the feet, as Hempleman was able to avoid all of Vila’s takedown attempts. Hempleman made good use of his jab throughout the fight, keeping Vila off balance and out of takedown range while peppering him with kicks to the inside and outside of his lead leg. Hempleman was also able to land numerous solid right crosses and uppercuts. Vila had his moments in the fight, landing several looping overhand rights and left hooks. But in the end, Hempleman’s higher workrate and more diverse striking arsenal carried him to victory.
