LAS VEGAS—World Series of Fighting 9 hits the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday night, and Bleacher Report is in attendance and reporting live.

The preliminary card begins at 6:30 p.m. ET, with the main card airing on NBC Sports at 9:00 p.m. ET.

The main event features a WSOF welterweight championship bout between champion Steve Carl and challenger Rousimar Palhares, who was released from the Ultimate Fighting Championship for holding a heel hook too long during a win over Mike Pierce in October.

Carl won the welterweight title with an October win over Josh Burkman.

The card also features a bantamweight title bout between Marlon Moraes and Josh Rettinghouse, plus the debut of former UFC middleweight title contender Yushin Okami.

Join Bleacher Report at 6:30 p.m. ET as we begin our coverage of the preliminary card, and stick with us throughout the evening for live results.
