On Monday morning, World Series of Fighting announced they have entered into a three-year broadcast deal with NBC Sports Network.

The partnership allows NBC Sports Network to deliver live mixed martial arts programming, beginning with the promotion’s second show, “WSOF 2,” on Saturday, March 23rd at 10PM ET at Revel Resorts & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The agreement calls for a minimum of six live events annually on the network, which reaches over 80 million homes. Additionally, later this year, NBCSports.com will offer a live stream of World Series of Fighting cards via TV Everywhere.

“We are thrilled to call NBC Sports Network the home of World Series of Fighting,” said World Series of Fighting president Ray Sefo. “This partnership will allow us to build the World Series of Fighting brand of world-class MMA competition before a dedicated national audience of passionate sports fans and place our athletes on the big stage that they deserve.”

The inaugural World Series of Fighting event aired live on NBC Sports Network this past November.
