Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer confirmed with MMAWeekly.com on Monday that the World Series of Fighting had their promoter’s license officially approved last Friday, and they are now able to put on events in the state.
The World Series of Fighting is a new organization headed up by K-1 legend Ray Sefo, and already has several high profile fighters expected to compete on their debut card.
The first World Series of Fighting event is expected to take place in early November in Las Vegas, and sources have indicated that they will have ‘a major media partner’ in place for the broadcast of the show.
The World Series of Fighting is based around the tournament format of events with 16-man brackets filling up five different weight classes in the promotion.
The first card however will just be a standard fight card as they introduce themselves to the world of MMA.
Dominance MMA owner and operator Ali Abdel-Aziz will be acting as matchmaker for the new promotion.
Several former UFC, Strikeforce and Pride competitors are expected to be a part of the World Series of Fighting when they make their debut later this year.
