Also on the card is a welterweight title matchup between WFC and LFA veteran fighter Chris Anthony as he battles Bellator and WFC veteran Scott O’Shaughnessy. Anthony is on a roll as of late winning three of his last four matchups. The number four ranked professional welterweight according to Tapology, Anthony, will look to earn his 10th professional win as well as earning some gold. O’Shaughnessy has finishing ability with five of his eight victories by knockout and three by submission. Look for both to try and make a statement, not allowing the judges to determine the new champion.

A second professional title is on the line in the featherweight division as Jewel Scott takes on Rocky Landry. A third title is on the line as the bantamweight amateur title will be up for grabs. Ray Lopez of NOLA BJJ and Dave Davis will do battle for this crown. As always, look for Battle of New Orleans #33 to deliver many finishes and a night packed with action.
