Rousimar Palhares vs. Steve Carl WSOF 9 Full Fight Video


WSOF welterweight champion Rousimar Palhares is looking in to a bright future for the promotion, with his first title defense scheduled against Jon Fitch in July, ‘Paul Harris’ had possibly the best debut any fighter could hope for.

Not only was ‘Toquinho’ able to get the title shot in his first fight outside the UFC, but he was able to finish a very tough champion in just over one minute. The win was somewhat dampened by the fact that Palhares once again failed to release the submission quickly enough.

‘Paul Harris’ made a habit of doing it while in the UFC, eventually meaning he was cut, so holding subs for too long in his new home of the WSOF is probably not the brightest idea.

Anyway, ‘Toquinho’ won and looked impressive doing so. Check out the full fight video below, courtesy of NBC sports, and stay tuned to LowKick!

  • He really is a one dimension fighter. Only wins the same way…wel as longer you win I suppose it doesn't matter how.

    • he's an effective one trick pony. but he still has to prove, that he's able to beat the elite in mma!

  • Toco is awesome!!! The most hyped up UFC fighter today is as much of a one trick pony as him and I dont see people complaining…Toco we love you !!!!!

  • He never held on to it for too long. He let go as soon as he realised it was over, what more do u expect the guy to do?

  • His favorite matchup, opponent runs in falls down gives up leg. .

  • he still doesnt let go right away watch again, and pay attention

    • Grabbing for anything he does at this point I think. I didn't even think his last one was bad. Notice this guy he just beat just isn't as much of a baby about it.
