World Series of Fighting 9 main event fighters Steve Carl and Rousimar Palhares both weighed in at exactly 170 pounds at the official weigh-in for the “World Series of Fighting 9: Carl vs. Palhares” event set to take place on Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Carl said he hasn’t done anything different in his pre-fight routine.
“I’ve done the same things to get ready for this fight as I always do,” said Carl, who won the welterweight tilte by beating Josh Burkman in WSOF 6. “It feels great to be the champ. I’m just gonna fight. When that bell rings, it’s go.”
“Tomorrow’s gonna be a show for everybody,” said Palhares.
Marlon Moraes and Josh Rettinghouse both tipped the scales at exactly 135 pounds a day before they fight for the inaugural WSOF bantamweight belt.
“It would mean a lot to win the first (bantamweight) title,” Moraes said. “I’m the best 135-pounder in the world and I’m going to show it tomorrow night.”
“I’m just a small-city kid on a pretty big stage and I’m looking to make some noise,” Rettinghouse, from Spokane, Wash., told the fans after weighing in.
