Lance Palmer (13-3) became the first fighter to finish former World Series of Fighting bantamweight champ Bekbulat Magomedov (19-2), getting the rear-naked choke at 3:21 of Round 2 in a featherweight bout during the Professional Fighters League season opener Thursday night at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. The PFL is a rebranded WSOF.
