WSOF rings in the New Year
By Edward Carbajal
During the broadcast of WSOF 32, World Series of Fighting (WSOF) CEO Carlos Silva announced that the promotion will be bringing their fights to Madison Square Garden on New Year’s Eve. New York has lifted the long ban on mixed martial arts this year, and with events at the professional level beginning this fall, WSOF is taking full advantage of the new territory for the sport.
Fighters and match ups for the card are being worked on by WSOF President Ray Sefo and should be announced soon. New Years Eve falls on Saturday, December 31 and the event will be broadcast live on NBC.
The event will mark the second live World Series of Fighting broadcast on NBC, which has also been airing one hour, taped programs featuring a collection of the league’s top fights and highlights, twice annually since 2013. To date, the league has aired 31 live events on NBCSN.
