WSOF 9 took place tonight and it sure delivered. In the main event we saw Rousimar Palhares do what he does best, finishing Steve Carl in just over a minute via inverted heel hook to become the new World Series of Fighting Welterweight champion.
We also saw Marlon Moraes give Josh Rettinghouse a one sided beat down which consisted of a plethora of devastating leg kicks, bringing back memories of Jose Aldo destroying Urijah Faber’s legs. With the win, Moraes became the inaugural World Series of Fighting Bantamweight champion.
And former UFC Middleweight Yushin Okami made a successful WSOF debut, in what seemed like a total mismatch against Svetlozar Savov.
