WSOF 6 took place tonight, featuring a great bantamweight bout between Marlon Moraes and Carson Beebe. Both of these fighters possess some exceptional skills, making this an exciting bout on paper. Beebe came out storming, but was met with relentless pressure from Moraes. Moraes avoided takedowns and ended up landing a brutal left, sending Beebe out and to the canvas.
This was a huge win for Moraes, who is proving to be a force under the WSOF banner. He is now on a five-fight winning streak, and he is proving to be one of the most dangerous strikers in the division. It was quite a sight seeing him elude Beebe’s punches and land some good shots of his own. Moraes didn’t take any damage in this fight, and it’s going hard for anyone to stop him at this point in his career.
He is one of the most exciting fighters in the lighter weight classes, and this is a huge feather in his cap.
Beebe was looking to score an impressive upset, but this wasn’t the case tonight. He will need to work on his defensive striking skills if he hopes to be a contender in this division. It’s going to be interesting to see if he can bounce back from this devastating loss as he is a great mixed martial artist with some solid wrestling skills. He just needs to keep improving in the striking department, which was clear tonight.
Congrats to Moraes on the impressive victory, and he is proving time and time again to be an elusive, powerful striker. A couple more wins like this, and he may get signed with the UFC.
