Being a world champion isn’t all rainbows and lollipops. New WSOF Featherweight champion Rick Glenn found that out this morning
Glenn posted a photo on twitter at an airport, where he was stopped by security to check his luggage, which contained his newly won championship belt.

Glenn scored what many considered to be a big upset over former champion Georgi Karakhanyan last night at World Series of Fighting 10. Glenn fought off a tight first-round armbar before dominating the champion to the point where Karakhanyan couldn’t answer the bell for the third round.
The 25-year-old Glenn is now unbeaten in his last 13 fights, including a 3-0 record for World Series of Fighting.
WSOF has said they plan on giving Lance Palmer a shot at Glenn’s title, but must re-negotiate Glenn’s contract first.
The fight was one of three title bouts on the card, which included no.1 ranked women’s strawweight fighter Jessica Aguilar defending her championship in dominant fashion over Emi Fujino, and Dave Branch making short work of Ultimate Fighter veteran Jesse Taylor to become the first ever WSOF middleweight champion.
