Filing the void left by the UFC's absence on a Saturday night was the World Series of Fighting. The promotion, ran by Xtreme Couture coach and former K-1 star Ray Sefo, had its inaugural card last night.
The promotion figures to become one of the premiere promotions not under the Zuffa umbrella and looked to be well on its way to accomplishing that goal with how stacked their first event was. The main event featured former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei "The Pitbull" Arlovski facing off against Strikeforce vet, Devin Cole.
Littered throughout the rest of the card were former UFC fighters like Miguel Angel Torres and Anthony Jackson along with one of the biggest stars in K-1, Tyrone Spong.
The first event was entertaining and had some memorable spots that WSOF will be able to build off when putting together its second card.
