Tonight, in the main event of WSOF 9, the promotion’s welterweight champion Steve Carl will attempt to defend his title against submission wizard Rousimar Palbares.
Carl will be hoping to get his first title defence over the UFC vet after capturing the WSOF title back in October with a fourth round submission over Josh Burkman. If the 29-year old manages to take the win tonight it will be his eighth straight win since losing to Douglas Lima in 2011.
“Toquinho” will be looking for gold in his first fight for the promotion as he takes on Carl for the 170 pound title. Palhares made his welterweight debut at UFC Fight Night 28 submitting Mike Pierce in just 31 seconds. However, the Brazilian held onto the submission well after Pierce had tapped resulting in his release from the UFC.
The pair will meet tonight at the Hard Rock Casino & Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada in Palhares’ first fight for the World Series Of Fighting. Who do you think will take the win, Palhares or Carl?
