    The World Series of Fighting will return to NBC on Sept. 13 when Marlon Moraes defends his bantamweight title against unbeaten Josh Hill in the main event of WSOF 13, tentatively set to be in Pennsylvania, matchmaker Ali Abdelaziz told Yahoo Sports.

    Moraes, 13-4-1, is ranked No. 9 at bantamweight by Sherdog. Moraes has won seven bouts in a row. Hill is 10-0 and defeated Mike Adams via first-round knockout on June 7 in Edmonton.

    Abdelaziz said he thinks Hill can give Moraes a good fight.

    "Marlon's striking is so good, but Josh has a plan to beat him," Abdelaziz said. "Marlon is a guy who puts on exciting fights for the fans and this will be a quality test for him going against a wrestler who has good jiu-jitsu, too."
