World Series of Fighting has its broadcast team for their inaugural event on November 3rd on NBC Sports Network. The Las Vegas card will be commentated on by none other than The Voice, Michael Schiavello. Joining him are Bas Rutten and Kurt Angle. MMA Junkie has the details:
Some familiar names will call the action for the debut World Series of Fighting event.
Company officials confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that MMA legend Bas Rutten, veteran combat-sports broadcaster Michael Schiavello, and Olympic gold medalist/pro wrestler Kurt Angle have been selected for the broadcast team.
Schiavello is probably the most knowledgeable "play-by-play" guy in the sport and by some distance. His enthusiasm in his commentary is unmatched and I'm sure it will go over well in his cable TV debut. For those who don't know who Kurt Angle is, he's a 1996 Olympics gold medalist in freestyle wrestling, so his presence is not strictly for star power from his pro wrestling background.
Most importantly, given Schiavello's frequent mentions of Bloody Elbow on HDNet/AXS TV events, this could be our chance to get mentioned on a larger media platform.
