The World Series of Fighting managed to pull of their first MMA event without much of a hitch as the action keptfans entertained with a slew of finishes. With the first event in the can, WSoF is hard at work planning a follow up event, scheduled for January 26 in Las Vegas.

WSoF president Ray Sefo made the announcement shortly after the debut show ended. Although he didn't allude to whether or not there will be new talent coming to the promotion, we can likely expect Tyrone Spong and perhaps Anthony Johnson and Andrei Arlovski back on the card considering their quick finishes of their opponents.

However, Miguel Torres -- the other major name that signed to the promotion -- may not be on the main card for the next event as his upset loss to Marlon Moraes now has him at 3-5 in his last eight fights. Meanwhile, Moraes is the only fighter set for the January 26 show. The Brazilian Muy Thai specialist will take on Tyson Nam, who is coming off of a knockout victory over Eduardo Dantas at Shooto Brazil 33 back in August.

There has yet to be any talk of how champions will be determined but we'll keep an eye out in hopes that we'll get more clarity on how the WSoF plans to separate itself from the competition.

    Next card has already been set:



    Andre Arlovski vs Brian (The Postman) Taylor. (Actually a Postman)



    Tyrone Spong vs Simon (Basement Train Set) Borlatt.



    And



    Bob Sapp vs a Paper Bag.



    ----------

    Paper Bag is the odds-on favourite at 13/1

    Man, Torres was the best BW out there a few years ago... now he might not even make the main card of WSOF 2.

    I was actually pretty impressed with the first event, It kept my attention the majority of the card. I have to say though the opponents of Anthony Johnson, Tyrone Spong and Andrei Arlovski all looked completely out of shape and not really like professional fighters. I know there is more to fighting then looking in shape but if this WSOF wants to last they will need to get some quality fighters.
