A headline bout has been added to the World Series of Fighting 1 event as Andrei Arlovski (17-9) faces Devin Cole (20-9-1) in a heavyweight battle. The event is set to take place at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on Nov. 3.
The fight was announced by WSOF officials today.
World Series of Fighting 1 will feature a host of talented MMA fighters, including former UFC and WEC vet Miguel Torres, Gregor Gracie, Rolles Gracie, Gerald Harris and Gesias Cavalcante. The main card for the event will air LIVE on NBC Sports Network.
Andrei Arlovski was last in action at ONE FC 5 in August, where he recorded a no contest against Tim Sylvia for two illegal soccer kicks. Prior to that he had been on a two fight winning streak, most recently defeating Travis Fulton via third round KO at ProElite 2 in November 2011. He also defeated Ray Lopez via third round TKO at ProElite 1 in August 2011. Arlovski will no doubt look to get back on track with a big win over Cole.
Meanwhile, Devin Cole is currently on a two fight winning streak, most recently defeating Gabriel Salinas-Jones via unanimous decision at “Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal” in December 2011. Prior to that he scored another unanimous decision win over Shawn Jordan at a Strikeforce Challengers event in July 2011. That victory snapped a two fight skid after dropping back-to-back decision losses to Aaron Rosa and Daniel Cormier. Cole now has an opportunity to extend his winning streak to three with a big win over Arlovski.
