For his World Series of Fighting debut in June, lightweight prospect Devin Powell would have liked things to have got a bit more like his previous seven fights, but it wasn’t the case. Fighting against a promotional veteran in Tommy Marcellino, Powell felt he faced a bit more of an uphill challenge. Combine that with problems getting his whole team with him for the fight, and he’s just happy to have come out with a split-decision victory. “I was going into a little bit of hostile territory there with it being (Marcellino’s) fourth fight, I think, in WSOF, and he had the crowd behind him,” Powell said to MMAWeekly.com. “Everything kind of got screwed up getting ready for the fight itself, so I was a little distracted. It’s not really an excuse, I still got my hand raised at the end of the day, and for this next one I’ll be able to do a little bit more of the stuff I’d like to do in the fight.” TRENDING > VIDEO: EFC 52 Weigh-in Erupts into All-Out Brawl Powell was also not able to move up to the main card as he would have liked.
