WSOF 9 RESULTS: Rousimar Palhares Heel Hooks Steve Carl, Marlon Moraes Batters Josh Rettinghouse on NBCSN - 3/29/14


The MMA World Series of Fighting presented WSOF 9: Carl vs Palhares on Saturday, March 29, 2014, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card aired live on the NBC Sports Network.

In the main event, disgraced former UFC fighter Rousimar Palhares won the WSOF Welterweight Championship using his patented and highly dangerous heel hook to submit Steve Carl, whose unlikely title reign came to a sobering halt in just 69 seconds. Palhares was fired from the UFC for holding on to a heel hook after Mike Pierce had tapped out and the ref was physically attempting to intervene. In this fight with Carl, Palhares once again held on to the hold late. While not nearly as egregious as his infraction against Pierce, the brutish Brazilian continues to push the boundary while risking his opponents' long-term health and career.

WSOF Bantamweight Champion Marlon Moraes cruised to a dominant 5-round decision victory over Josh Rettinghouse. Moraes landed leg kick after leg kick, demobilizing Rettinghouse early. Rettinghouse proved to be way too tough for his own good, and took one hell of a beating. The drubbing was so bad, that it appeared Moraes was holding back in the final rounds as to not permanently injure Rettinghouse. MMA has the potential to go from sport to spectacle, from an entertaining viewing experience to something painful to watch, and this fight crossed that line. The fight should have been stopped well before the end by either referee Jason Herzog, the ringside physician or Rettinghouse's corner. While Rettinghouse proved that he is a warrior to his very core, he took a lot of unnecessary punishment and was let down by those in charge of protecting him.
