The main event of the very first World Series of Fighting card featured Andrei Arlovski scoring a first round knockout over Devin Cole tonight (Nov. 3, 2012) in Las Vegas, Nevada. That's one more for the good guys.

The main event of the very first World Series of Fighting (WSOF) card that took place tonight (Sat., Nov. 3, 2012) in Las Vegas, Nevada, featured former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski taking on Devin Cole.

It was set up to be a nice little heavyweight bangfest to close out what the promotion hoped would be a successful debut on the NBC Sports Network.

Cole said he wanted to end it early but once he exchanged punches with the Belarusian, he decided to shoot in for a takedown and clinch up against the cage.

Thank god Dana White wasn't the promoter here, huh?

Cole's idea of keeping Arlovski locked up in the clinch proved to be the smart play when they separated and "The Pitbull" crushed him with some of that heavy leather he's so well know for. The chin was never tested and he was able to get off with his punches despite some early clinch work.

Maybe Dana White would have been happy after all.

Ray Sefo and everyone else at WSOF has to be happy too, considering this event went smooth with three finishes in four main card fights and production values on the level of any other major mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion with a television deal.

If you're a fan of MMA, you probably enjoyed this fight and the event as a whole. Nothing wrong with that, folks.
