Fight fans only have to wait one more weekend until the Octagon returns to action. World Series of Fighting will look to capitalize on the UFC’s brief hiatus this Saturday by dipping their toes in the mixed martial arts pond.

The 11-bout lineup for the promotion’s inaugural event has been finalized. A heavyweight tango between former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski (Pictured) and Devin Cole headlines the festivities.

Former WEC bantamweight king Miguel Torres meets Marlon Moraes in the co-featured attraction.

The show takes place at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Nevada. NBC Sports Network (formerly known as Versus Network) will broadcast the four showcase scraps live beginning at 10:30PM ET/7:30PM PT.
