Vertx® is pleased to announce the sponsorship and addition of current World Series of Fighting Welterweight champion, Steve Carl, to their distinctive Pro Staff.
Carl has established himself as one of the world’s best Welterweights by posting an impressive 21-3 professional MMA record. Coming off 7 straight submission victories, Steve Carl is set to defend his title against Rouismar Palhares on March 29th at WSOF 9. The fight will be televised live on NBCSN.
Carl, known for his prowess inside the cage, is a former Army Sergeant who served two tours during his time in the military. He often credits his military background for the mental fortitude and strength necessary to become champion. His veteran status in addition to successes inside and outside MMA is what led him to be a natural fit for Vertx.
Vertx Director of Marketing, Ginger Rohlfs, feels Carl is a great addition stating, “Steve Carl is in many ways the proverbial good guy and he is a reflection of the Vertx brand. He’s been the underdog only to rise to the occasion and let his actions deliver results. We’re fortunate to have him on our team.”
The Cedar Rapids, Iowa native had this to say about the partnership — “I’m honored to be supported by a company that I can really get behind like Vertx. They are known for having some of the best tactical gear around, and being a nature lover, I can’t wait to proudly wear Vertx in the cage and out in the field. I’m excited to be a part of such a great company.”
