According to WSOF matchmaker Ali Abdelaziz, WSOF has a pretty big announcement upcoming. What could it be?
When the WSOF signed it's 3-year deal with NBC Sports last year, part of the deal was two live events on NBC in 2014. Looks like this very well could be the announcement that Ali is hinting at.
World Series of Fighting 11 is slated for July 5, headlined by Lightweight champion Justin Gaetheje vs One-armed sensation Nick Newell. Also on the card, former UFC welterweight title challengers Jake Shields and Jon Fitch, and UFC veteran Melvin Giullard takes on JZ Cavalcante.
With Nick Newell on the card, will WSOF gain major crossover appeal being on NBC?
What do you think Maniacs?
