Marlon Moraes vacates WSOF bantamweight title

One of the best bantamweights in mixed martial arts, Marlon Moraes, has vacated his WSOF bantamweight title. There has been no announcement as of yet regarding his future, but this could be a clear sign that the free agent has signed elsewhere.

Upon hitting the free agent market, there was talk that the UFC would look to sign Moraes. There is no confirmation in regards to where, if any, negotiations currently stand.

Moraes stands at 18-4 in mixed martial arts, this after going 26-1 as a Muay Thai fighter. He was the first and only bantamweight champion in the history of the WSOF.

World Series of Fighting is pushing on without missing a step and has added a bantamweight title fight to its March 18th WSOF 35 card from Verona, NY. Tamir “The Lucky” Valiev (11-2) will face Bekbulat Magomedov (17-1) for the vacant title.

WSOF 35 takes place Saturday, March 18th from the the Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, NY. Airing live on NBC Sports Network.
