The next installment in the World Series of Fighting will head north, as WSOF 18 goes down Thursday, February 12 from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
The four-fight, NBC Sports Network main card will feature Marlon Moraes defending his bantamweight title against Josh Hill. The other three bouts include Chris Gruetzemacher vs. Antonio Carvalho, Shane Campbell vs. Brandt Dewsbery and Hakeem Dawodu vs. Tristan Johnson.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday through Ticketmaster and WSOF.com at noon ET.
“This is an incredible match up between two of the world’s top 135-pound fighters that we have been looking to put together for the last several months and, now that it is finally here, we will see who the superior fighter is on February 13,” said WSOF president Ray Sefo.
The 26-year-old Moraes will enter the WSOF cage with eight consecutive victories under his belt, including a split decision over former world champion Miguel Torres, and devastating KO finishes of fellow stars Tyson Nam and Carson Beebe.
In his last effort, Moraes turned in another dominant performance of Cody Bollinger in a 140-pound catchweight contest at WSOF 13.
Hill is unbeaten since making his pro debut in 2009 and will be returning to action for the first time since last June.

WSOF Bantamweight Championship
Marlon Moraes (c) vs. Josh Hill
Featherweight: Chris Gruetzemacher vs. Antonio Carvalho
