The July 5 event will take place at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Fla., and the main card will air live on NBC, WSOF executive vice president Ali Abdel-Aziz confirmed with MMAFighting.com. MMAMania.com first reported the news.

July 5 will be a busy day for MMA fans as UFC 175 will also take place on that date in Las Vegas, however, WSOF officials confirmed to MMAFighting.com that the NBC broadcast will air from 4 p.m. ET to 6 p.m. ET to not coincide with the UFC event.
