Submission! Josh Burkman vs Steve Carl full fight video highlights online from WSOF 6 on NBC Sports

Check out full fight video highlights from the first-ever World Series of Fighting (WSOF) welterweight championship match between Josh Burkman vs. Steve Carl that headlined the NBC Sports mixed martial arts (MMA) card last night in South Florida.

No one apparently informed Steve Carl that World Series of Fighting (WSOF) was banking on a Welterweight trilogy match between Josh Burkman vs. Jon Fitch in the near future.

Carl spoiled those grand plans last night (Sat., Oct. 26, 2013) with a fourth round submission of Burkman at WSOF 6, which emanated from BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Fla., to claim the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's first-ever 170-pound world title.

"I felt like I could have performed a lot better, but there's something not a lot of people know," Carl said after the win. "Two weeks ago I was in the emergency room with torn muscles and a bulging disc in my back, unable to walk. My last two weeks have been nothing but rest and rehab to get here. I was bound and determined to take this fight, and I'm not really happy with my performance.

"I was so tired I wanted to quit there a couple times. Josh is a really game opponent, and he kept bringing it. Honestly, I didn't think I could do it for a while. My cornermen just kept pushing me through it, and here we are. We did it."

Carl (21-3) -- a relative unknown on the MMA scene prior to last night's upset -- is currently riding a seven-fight win streak. Once his injuries are healed, he'll likely have to defend his belt against Fitch and/or Burkman, seeing as how those are the top two 170-pound fighters currently on the WSOF roster.
