World Series of Fighting (WSF), an event promoted by former K-1 star Ray Sefo, makes its debut on the MMA scene this Saturday, and it will be making a major splash right off the bat, with the maiden event being broadcast live from Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nevada, on the NBC network. Official weigh-ins went down on Friday, and all the fighters made weight without difficulty. The very first card for the promotion is already one worthy of the attention it has garnered.
And the main event, between Andrei Arlovski and Devin Cole, isn’t even the most intriguing match-up of the card. Matches like Gregor Gracie versus Tyson Steele, who holds a nine-win, one-loss record, looks sure to bring fireworks.
Another interesting match-up has Ronys Torres taking on Brian “The Bandit” Cobb
On the main card, former UFC stars Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and Miguel Torres will toe the line against DJ Linderman and Marlon Moraes, respectively.
Another first-rate treat on the menu, Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante will have TJ O’Brien ahead of him. Onetime Pride FC participant Fabio Mello makes his return to the MMA elite against Waylon Lowe.
