Fledgling MMA promotion ‘World Series Of Fighting’ have today announced that they’ve signed a three year television deal with NBC Sports Network.

The promotion, fronted by former kickboxing star Ray Sefo, will now host at least six events a year on NBC Sports Network starting with ‘WSOF 2’ on March 23rd.

WSOF held their first ever event on the network back in November with Andrei Arlovski headlining opposite Devin Cole, watched by an average of 198,000 viewers.

Really you have to take your hat of to WSOF for securing a deal like this despite having no previous track record and it means that MMA now has a strong television presence in the U.S with the UFC on FOX, FX and Fuel TV, Bellator settling in over at Spike TV and Showtime indicating that they still have an interest in continuing to deliver MMA content despite Strikeforce’s demise.
