World Series of Fighting to Debut in November; Possible NBC Sports Network Deal in Works


By Ariel Helwani – Video Reporter and Writer

The World Series of Fighting is open for business in Nevada.

The organization was recently granted a promoter’s license by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, paving the way for its first event later this year. Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer confirmed the news with MMAFighting.com on Tuesday. MMAWeekly.com first reported the news.

According to Kizer, the promotion has requested to hold its first event on Nov. 3 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Kizer forwarded the official request written by WSOF official Keith Evans to MMAFighting.com and in it he states that the card will air on NBC Sports Network, formerly known as Versus. MMAFighting.com has confirmed with another WSOF official that the event will air on NBC Sports Network, however, attempts to confirm the news with the cable channel have thus far been unsuccessful.

No fights have been officially announced for the debut card just yet. According to the organization’s Web site, familiar names such as Roger Huerta, Rolles Gracie and Thales Leites are on its roster.

K-1 and MMA fighter Ray Sefo, who also works as a coach at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, will serve as the president of the organization. Al Abdel-Aziz, the head of Dominance MMA Management, which represents the likes of Frankie Edgar, Renzo Gracie, Keith Jardine and Chad Griggs, will serve as the promotion’s matchmaker.
