World Series of Fighting has a new co-main event for its June 14 card in Las Vegas.
The company announced the bout Friday via press release.
Steele (10-1), a Saskatchewan native, takes a four-fight win streak into the bout. He had a memorable comeback win over Gregor Gracie at the WSOF's debut card in November, in which he withstood several submission attempts before notching a TKO win late in the first round.
Carl, an Iowa native, takes a five-fight win streak into the bout. He was last seen on the same November WSOF event, with a first-round submission of Ramico Blackmon. Carl has scored 14 of his 19 career wins via submission.
The card's original co-main event, Tyron Spong vs. Angel DeAnda, was scrapped when Spong encountered difficulties returning to the United States from his native Netherlands.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to replace the original co-main event with a matchup between two of MMA's fastest rising stars who are both on course to become future champions," said WSOF president Ray Sefo. "Losing Tyrone from this card is unfortunate, but our fighters need to prepare sufficiently to compete at this level, and we are certainly not going to take any shortcuts or try to rush a matchup if one or both fighters are not ready to compete. We will move forward and look forward to seeing Tyrone back in the World Series of Fighting cage very soon."
