World Series of FightingGood news MMA fans, the World Series of Fighting has partnered with NBC Sports Network to deliver even more of fights to your television. Having only put on one event, World Series of Fighting has signed a three-year deal that calls for a minimum of six live events each year to be broadcast to over 80 million homes.

NBC Sports Network aired the inaugural World Series of Fighting event on Nov. 3, 2012 but this new deal doesn’t start until on March 23rd. The promotion will hold their second event, WSOF 2 on that day from the Revel Resorts & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Additionally, later this year, NBCSports.com will begin steaming live World Series of Fighting events as well.

“We are thrilled to call NBC Sports Network the home of World Series of Fighting,” said World Series of Fighting President and six-time world kickboxing champion, Ray Sefo. “This partnership will allow us to build the World Series of Fighting brand of world-class MMA competition before a dedicated national audience of passionate sports fans and place our athletes on the big stage that they deserve.”

The fight card for World Series of Fighting 2 has yet to be announced but MMAJunkie is reporting that former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is set to headline against Anthony Johnson.

My brain child is MMAValor, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally it’s here. Been an MMA fan since TUF season one (play catch up all the time) and the obsession started to grow like a weed and as the sport grows so does the love for the sport. I’m a jack of all trades, a very organized person that rides an emotional roller coaster daily.
