Tyrone Spong made his MMA debut for the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) back in November. At first, the kickboxing star was set for the prelims before being bumped to the main card.
“That card [in November], I wasn’t going to be on the main card – I was going to be on the undercard,” said Spong on MMA Junkie Radio. “But by the demand of the fans, I ended up on the main card. Now I’m in the main event.”
In the main event of WSOF 4, Spong meets Angel DeAnda. Spong made quick work of Travis Bartlett in his debut. He’s 72-6 in the kickboxing world and won a GLORY 9 tournament from New York City in late June.
DeAnda has won four in a row as he makes his first appearance of 2013.
WSOF 4 is August 10 from the Citizens Business Bank Arena City in Ontario, CA. The main card airs live on the NBC Sports Network.
