World Series Of Fighting Makes Pair Of Announcements

The World Series of Fighting will host its first show in November, with Andrei Arlovski and Devin Cole scheduled to take the main event position.

The promotion recently announced that former UFC fighter Miguel Torres will compete in the co-main event. Torres is expected to face Marlon Moraes.

Also, the promotion has signed ex-UFC middleweight title contender Thales Leites. No word yet if Leites will be part of the November card that airs on NBC Sports Network.

Torres was cut by the UFC following a loss to Michael McDonald. It is believed that another posting on his Twitter account also accounted for his release. He is 3-4 in his last seven.

Moraes sports a career record of 8-4-1, including a recent 48-second KO of Jarrod Card.

    Great matchup, I’m really excited to see more of Moraes. This first card is getting more and more crowded, this is the biggest buildup to a new promotion that I’ve seen in awhile, can’t wait to see them deliver!
