A three year partnership between the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) and NBC Sports Network has been signed. It goes into effective on the promotion’s second show, WSOF 2, on March 23.
“We are thrilled to call NBC Sports Network the home of World Series of Fighting,” said WSOF president 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.”
A minimum of six live events will air on the TV network. Later in the year, NBCSports.com will stream the live fights.
WSOF 2 comes from Revel Resorts & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ with a 10 p.m. ET start time. Announced for that card is Marlon Moraes vs. Tyson Nam. The main event is rumored to be former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski vs. Anthony Johnson.
The inaugural World Series of Fighting aired live on NBC Sports Network on November 3.
