WSOF 6

World Series of Fighting's first-ever event in Florida continues to fill out, and a light-heavyweight matchup of Francisco "Kiko" France (8-3) vs. Hans Stringer (21-5-2) and a bantamweight contest of Chad "Robo" Robichaux (10-2) vs. Andrew "The Golden Boy" Yates (7-0) are the latest additions to the lineup.

Both matchups take place on the World Series of Fighting 6 preliminary card, which streams live on the promotion's official website, WSOF.com, and precedes the night's two-hour, nationally-televised main card on NBCSN.

Featuring the first championship bout in the promotion's history with Josh Burkman vs. Steve Carl, "World Series of Fighting 6: Burkman vs. Carl," takes place Oct. 26 at BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Fla.

Tickets for the event, which start at just $29, are currently on sale at all Ticketmaster locations, Ticketmaster.com and charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000.

The live, two-hour NBCSN telecast of the World Series of Fighting 6 main card begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. Preliminary bouts stream live on World Series of Fighting's official website, WSOF.com, beginning at 6 p.m. ET, and venue doors open at 5 p.m. ET.

The 30-year-old France is a jiu-jitsu wizard who has earned all eight of his career wins by way of submission. A Finney's Hit Squad fighter, France has competed professionally for more than five years and boast wins over UFC veterans James McSweeney and Cale Yarbrough. Most recently, France earned a first-round submission win over Dan McGlasson by way of armbar.

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old Stringer also makes his World Series of Fighting debut after having his planned first appearance scratched just one day before the scheduled bout. Stringer was expected to face longtime veteran Lew Polley at August's World Series of Fighting 4 event, but Polley missed weight by more than 30 pounds and was ruled out of the fight.

The Blackzilians-trained Stringer has lost just once in his past 13 appearances. Seventeen of his 21 career wins have come by way of stoppage.

Meanwhile, "Robo" Robichaux is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and 14-year MMA veteran with extensive experience in both the professional and amateur ranks. Seventeen of his 19 total career wins have come by way of submission, including 15 first-round tapouts.

A Special Operations Force RECON Marine who also worked with the U.S. Federal Air Marshal Service, Robichaux is also a veteran of several tours of duty in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, the undefeated Yates also makes his first World Series of Fighting appearance. A member of MMA legend Wanderlei Silva's famed Wand Fight Team, Yates turned pro in 2011 following an extensive amateur career of more than 25 fights. The 24-year-old has defeated all seven of his professional opponents, including four wins by way of submission and one by knockout.

Additional World Series of Fighting 6 bouts will be announced shortly.
