STAMFORD, Conn. – March 26, 2014 — NBCSN presents World Series of Fighting this Saturday, March 29, at 9 p.m. ET. The elite mixed martial arts (MMA) card is highlighted by a pair of title fights in the welterweight and bantamweight divisions.
The welterweight title fight features current champion and undefeated World Series of Fighting veteran Steve Carl (21-3) and challenger Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares (15-5). Submission specialist Carl comes off a seven-fight winning streak and remains unbeaten in the past two-and-a-half years, as he faces world-class Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Palhares. The co-main event features Marlon Moraes (12-4-1) vs. Josh Rettinghouse (10-2) for the inaugural World Series of Fighting bantamweight title. Moraes, a knockout artist, looks to extend his six-fight winning streak against fast-rising upstart Rettinghouse.
Saturday’s card also features bouts between Japanese superstar Yushin Okami (29-8) vs. Bulgarian import Svetlozar Savov (12-4) in the middleweight class, former World Series of Fighting title challenger Josh Burkman (26-10) vs. striker extraordinaire Tyler Stinson (27-9) in the welterweight class, and two-time World Series of Fighting veteran Ozzy Dugulubgov (5-1) vs. promotional newcomer Johnny Nunez (4-0) in the lightweight class.
Play-by-play announcer Todd Harris and mixed martial artist and analyst Bas Rutten will call the action from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.
