On November 15, The UFC, Bellator MMA, and World Series Of Fighting will all go head to head in ratings.
UFC will be hosting UFC 180: Velasquez vs. Werdum live from Mexico, on PPV
Bellator will be hosting Bellator 131: Bonnar vs. Ortiz, which will air on Spike TV.
And WSOF will be hosting WSOF 15, which features 3 championship fights. The first being between Jessica Aguilar vs. Kalindra Faria, the second being between Justin Gaethje and Melvin Guillard, and the main event being between David Branch vs. Yushin Okami.
WSOF executive VP Ali Abel-Aziz spoke with MMAFighting to discuss his lack of concern for having an event the same day as UFC and Bellator.
“I think competition is really good between Bellator and UFC and WSOF. I like the UFC and I like Scott Coker, they’re great guys, but I think WSOF always put on exciting fights.”
“Very intriguing match-ups, especially Melvin Guillard and Justin Gaethje. I’m very, very looking forward to it. And I’m looking forward to see the new David Branch. David Branch has killer instinct, and he’s fighting a guy, Okami, who is a future legend.”
