In the night’s main event, the promotion’s welterweight title was on the line as champion Steve Carl clashed with UFC veteran Rousimar Palhares. Carl claimed the belt in October with a fourth-round submission over UFC veteran Josh Burkman. The win stretched the Iowa fighter’s winning streak to seven. Palhares, meanwhile, made his promotional debut. The Brazilian is known for his vicious leg locks, as well as controversy. He was released from the UFC in October after failing to release a submission against Mike Pierce. A second title was up for grabs at the event as the promotion crowned its inaugural bantamweight champion in the night’s co-main event. Brazilian Muay Thai practitioner Marlon Moraes looked for his fifth win inside the WSOF cage when he battled 24-year-old, Washington-based fighter Josh Rettinghouse for 135-pound supremacy. In all, the event featured 11 fights. The five-fight main card aired live on the NBC Sports Network beginning at 9 p.m. ET, while the six preliminary card bouts streamed live on the promotion’s website.
