For some reason the broadcast team for the inaugural World Series of Fighting card has changed multiple times in the last month or so, and it's changing again. After the original team of Michael Schiavello, Kurt Angle, and Bas Rutten was scrapped, Schiavello was due to work with Bas and Renzo Gracie. That's not happening either, so with the card less than two weeks away, the official press release states it will be Todd Harris and Bas Rutten at cageside on November 3rd.
Legendary MMA personality and former UFC heavyweight champion, Bas "El Guapo" Rutten, and NBC commentator Todd Harris will call the debut Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event for World Series of Fighting, live on NBC Sports Network from Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, Nov. 3.
"We are thrilled that Bas and Todd have signed on for our first event," said World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo. "These guys are true professionals and we know that their commentary will add tremendous value to our first card."
The live NBC Sports Network telecast of the World Series of Fighting event will begin at 10:30 p.m. EST/7:30 p.m. PST.
It's pretty interesting to see Harris on this given he's the host of FUEL TV's UFC Tonight, but then again he is pretty much a frequent face on NBC's action sports, including in the last two Olympics. He was also the veteran WEC announcer back when NBC Sports Network was known as "Versus".
World Series of Fighting's main card airs live on NBC Sports, but the preliminary card, which includes Tyrone Spong, Ronys Torres, and Gerald Harris in action, will be broadcast on Sherdog.com.
