MMA to air on NBC Sports Network?

August 28, 2012

MMA Fighting reports that MMA organization the World Series of Fighting received its promoter’s license from the Nevada State Athletic  Commission  which allows it to promote its first fight in Nevada.  The organization is scheduled for November at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

MMA Fighting has obtained documents which indicate that NBC Sports Networks will air the card.  Although there has been confirmation from the World Series of Fighting, the network has yet to confirm.

Payout Perspective:

The card is set for November 3, 2012 which is ideal as it will not run opposite a UFC card or a big boxing match.  Bellator will be one day before and will not interfere.  The addition of MMA to the NBC Sports Network makes sense considering it has been successful with its quarterly boxing series and is looking to add more content to its programming.

    Time slot? I remember NBC broadcasting Strikeforce in the twilight hours.

Got something to say?
