Due to Tyrone Spong not being able to get a visa to travel to the United States, the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) needed a new co-main event. That goes to welterweights Steve Carl and Tyson Steele.
Carl, a former Bellator competitor, choked out Ramico Blackmon on the first WSOF card for his fifth consecutive win.
Steele won on the same card by finishing Gregor Gracie in the opening round, for number 10 in stoppages.
WSOF 3 is June 14 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The main card airs on the NBC Sports Network.
