In their first MMA event ever, the NBC channel will host the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 1 at the Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, NV. MicroTech, the No. 1 Hispanic-Owned IT Integrator in the Nation, is sponsoring two fantastic fighters for this premier matchup on Saturday, November 3. Representing Brazil, the chosen two are Batamweight Marlon Moraes and Welterweight Gregor Gracie. The fights will air live on NBC Sports at 10 p.m. (EST).
Moraes (8-4) is a Muy Thai national championship fighter. Compared to his opponent Miguel Torres (40-5), Moraes has a small professional record, but has been training since he was a small child.
Long-time MicroTech friend and Brazilian Jui-Jujitsu champion, Gracie has a record of 7-2. In 2010, Gracie attended a MicroTech sponsored MMA celebrity visit at Walter Reed Army Medical Center with other well-known athletes Frankie Edgar, Eddie Alvarez, and Boxer Seth Mitchell. Gracie will face off against Tyson Steele (9-1) in this WSOF inaugural event.
