On a weekend defined by back-to-back UFC fight nights, World Series of Fighting 11 quietly makes the bold leap to network TV, debuting this Saturday on NBC.
Headlined by the sure-to-be-exciting lightweight title fight between Justin Gaethje and Nick Newell, the promotion is putting its best foot forward for its biggest card to date. The main event isn't the only fight to look forward to, though, as it is backed up by not one, not two, but three likely top-contender bouts.
Pablo Alfonso and Cody Bollinger kick off the card to determine the next opponent for WSOF's top male talent, Marlon Moraes. UFC fan favorite Melvin Guillard faces off with Strikeforce veteran Gesias Cavalcante with a shot at the main event's winner on the line. Finally, in the co-main event, Jon Fitch takes on Dennis Hallman, with welterweight champ Rousimar Palhares waiting in the wings.
The fights go down Saturday at 4 p.m. ET on NBC, but in the meantime, keep on reading Bleacher Report's guide to the WSOF 11 main card!
