Carson Beebe, WSOFCarson Beebe tells Chicago’s MMA that he has agreed to fight Marlon Moraes at WSOF 6 on October 26 in Miami.

“This is the biggest fight of my career. It’s a huge honor to fight for such an amazing organization like WSOF, and to be co-main event…what a blessing,” Beebe said. “I’m coming in as the underdog and fighting this guy on his home turf. I am preparing to shock the world!”

Beebe currently ranks as the #2 bantamweight in the WSOF, right behind the top-ranked Moraes. “I know a win here would put me on top and in prime position for a belt,” Beebe said.

The WSOF released pictures of their championship belts, but have yet to announce plans for any title fights. They are getting closer to doing that, lining up tournaments for different divisions. Either way, a win over Moraes would indeed put Beebe as first in line for a shot at the WSOF bantamweight title.

Beebe scored a unanimous decision victory over Joe Murphy at WSOF 3, his first fight for the promotion. It was his eighth consecutive win and he holds a professional record of 14-1. The fight against Moraes will be the second of a four-fight contract that he signed with WSOF. Beebe has made it abundantly clear how happy he is to be fighting for them.

“They are one of the biggest organizations in the world and are well-known for how well they treat their fighters,” Beebe told us before his fight with Murphy.

Beebe knows that it’s not only the biggest fight of his career, but it’s also his toughest. Moraes has won all three of his WSOF fights, dispatching Miguel Torres, knocking out Tyson Nam and winning via unanimous decision over Brandon Hempleman.

Since the fight will be the co-main event, it will be nationally televised on the NBC Sports Network.
