Now that Strikeforce has been purchased and essentially run into the ground, it is time for a new batch of promotions to step up and provide competition (a term used lightly even when Strikeforce was at its peak) for the UFC to keep an eye on.
While Bellator is currently leading the charge with their upcoming move to Spike TV, a successful debut by World Series of Fighting on NBC Sports Network could push that promotion toward the top of the heap when it comes to organizations trying to do battle with the world's premier MMA organization.
This Saturday, World Series of Fighting will put on its first show, which will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski and Devin Cole. A number of other UFC veterans will also appear on the card to be held at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
What follows are previews and predictions for every fight on the card.
