New World Series of Fighting champions Rousimar Palhares and Marlon Moraes led the promotion’s payroll from this past Saturday’s World Series of 9 fight card.

SciFighting.com obtained the disclosed payroll numbers from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

World Series of Fighting 9 was one of the more memorable shows in the promotion’s short history. The main event was a very quick, yet controversial affair. Incumbent World Series of Fighting Welterweight Champion Steve Carl submitted in 1 minute and 9 seconds to a Palhares’ inverted heel hook. The controversy came after Carl’s tap, as many fans and media members felt that Palhares held onto the submission for far too long after Carl submitted.

The night’s co-main event for the vacant World Series of Fighting Bantamweight Championship between Marlon Moraes and Josh Rettinghouse was about as one sided as a fight can get. Moraes used a variety of strikes, including incredibly effective leg kicks, to dominate Rettinghouse for all five rounds of the bout. The win not only netted Moraes the World Series of Fighting Championship, but solidified his spot as World Series of Fighting’s fastest rising star.
