Steve Carl claimed the World Series of Fighting welterweight title last October with a fourth round submission win over Josh Burkman. It was his seventh straight career victory, including two other WSOF wins over Tyson Steele and Ramico Blackburn.

Despite submitting highly underrated Mike Pierce in just 31-seconds at UFC Fight Night 29, Rousimar Palhares was released from the promotion after holding onto the heel hook for several seconds after the referee was attempting to pull him off. The win snapped a two-fight losing streak, back-to-back knockout losses to Alan Belcher and Hector Lombard.

Marlon Moraes won his fourth fight with the World Series of Fighting last October, knocking out Carson Beebe in just 32-seconds into the opening round. He’s now won six straight fights, including wins over Miguel Torres, Tyson Nam, and Brandon Hempleman.

Josh Rettinghouse will fight for a world title at the young age of 23, thanks to a unanimous decision win over Alexis Vila in his debut with the World Series of Fighting. He’s won seven of his last eight fights, with five of those wins coming by stoppages (1 KO/TKO, 4 Submission).

Quickly becoming one of the top lightweight prospects outside the UFC, Justin Gaethje added another knockout victory to his resume at World Series of Fighting 6, stopping Dan Lauzon in the second round. He remains perfect in his young MMA career at 10-0, including wins over Drew Fickett, Gesias Cavalcante, and Brian Cobb.

Earlier this year in March, Gesias Cavalcante lost to Gaethje after a cut forced a doctor stoppage early in the first round at WSOF 2. He rebounded with an upset win over UFC-veteran, Tyson Griffin, stopping him in the third round via TKO.

Ultimate Fighter 18 alum, Cody Bollinger looks for redemption in the World Series of Fighting after being kicked off the show for failing to make weight in his quarterfinal match-up. Officially, he’s won six out his last seven fights, with his only loss coming in the quarterfinals of Bellator’s season seven featherweight tourney to Shabulat Shamhalaev by first round TKO.

Tyson Nam put himself on the MMA map  when he knocked out Bellator’s bantamweight champion, Eduardo Dantas in the first round at a Shooto: Brazil event in August of last year. He wasn’t able to keep the momentum rolling at World Series of Fighting 2, suffering a first round knockout to Marlon Moraes.

Widely considered one of the best featherweights in the world outside a major promotion, Georgi Karakhanyan gets a shot a world title in just his second fight with the World Series of Fighting. He made his WSOF debut in September, submitting UFC-veteran Waylon Lowe in the first round with a guillotine choke. Karakhanyan’s currently on an eight-fight win streak, dating back to April of 2011.
