World Series of Fighting special to air Saturday on NBC


World Series of Fighting is getting some holiday love from NBC this weekend.

The network will air "WSOF Unstoppable: Road to the Championship," a look back at the MMA promotion's 2014, on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET, MMA Fighting has learned. The show will focus on the paths that seven World Series of Fighting champions took to earn titles.

"WSOF Unstoppable" will be hosted by promotion play-by-play announcer Todd Harris along with a pair of MMA legends: Bas Rutten and Renzo Gracie. It will feature a mix of highlights and full rounds from 16 different WSOF fights across 2014 and 2013, including seven title fights from this year.

Marlon Moraes, Lance Palmer, Justin Gaethje, Rousimar Palhares, David Branch, Smealinho Rama and Jessica Aguilar -- all WSOF champions -- will be featured on the program.

"We are excited to cap off what was a banner year for World Series of Fighting and appreciate the opportunity that NBC is giving our fans to re-live some of the most incredible moments we have seen thus far in our cage," said Ray Sefo, WSOF president.

World Series of Fighting will be back with a live event Jan. 17 on NBC Sports Network from Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Jake Shields will meet Brian Foster in the main event in a welterweight title eliminator.
