The World Series of Fighting and the NBC Sports Network have announced a three year partnership today, which calls for the mixed martial arts organization doing a minimum of six fights annually.
Along with announcing the partnership, WSOF has announced that their first event of 2013 will take place on March 23rd from the Revel Resorts & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
“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 March 23rd fight card in Atlantic City is expected to have a bantamweight bout on the main card between Tyson Nam and Marlon Moraes. Nam was signed by the organization prior to their first event last year and it was announced that his next fight would be against Moraes, who defeated former WEC champion Miguel Torres at the inaugural event.
