The World Series of Fighting, the newest promotion set to land in Las Vegas, has requested the date of Nov 3 at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino for their debut show.

According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the upstart organization has requested that date and location for their first show.

The Planet Hollywood arena is set to hold upwards of 6,000 people for a live MMA show, and the World Series of Fighting stated there will be 10+ bouts on the first card.

In addition to the information about the first show debuting on Nov. 3, the World Series of Fighting appears close to announcing a television deal that will land them on the NBC Sports Network.

The NBC Sports Network is the new name for what once was the Versus network. At one time, both the UFC and the WEC broadcast shows on Versus until their deal expired and the promotion moved to the Fox family of networks.

The first World Series of Fighting card is expected to feature several former UFC and Strikeforce competitors including Roger Huerta, Joey Villasenor and John Gunderson.
