The World Series of Fighting (WSOF) brings their fourth event to Ontario, California on August 10th, and the event is set to air on NBC Sports as part of the deal they inked last year. The company announced that they would be waiting until 2014 to begin filling their now non existent titles, but the WSOF matchmakers have put together a solid card from top to bottom. The card suffers from a lack of big names, and is built around kickboxer Tyrone Spong taking on Angel DeAnda in the main event. Also on the card is Ray Sefo, who is also the WSOF’s active President, as he faces veteran Dave Huckaba.

Ray Sefo was a fine kickboxer in his day, and he has dabbled in MMA late in his career (he is 2-1 under MMA rules). If Sefo thinks his presence on a card in California will help sell tickets, he has greatly overestimated his Q score. No one outside the WSOF and perhaps his own family cares that Sefo is fighting.
For his part, Sefo opponent Dave Huckaba is a veteran with a 20-5 record who has faced limited competition throughout his career. He is coming off a win over another good kickboxer, Carter Williams, and he will definitely have some advantages over Sefo, who is still really limited to be only a striker.
The Spong bout will have the same dynamic. As a veteran, DeAnda will have advantages on the ground over Spong, whose natural instincts will center around his amazing striking. This bout is a bit of a mismatch on the feet, and DeAnda is going to be in serious trouble if he employs his usual strategy of trying to take shots and have a firefight on the feet.
The main card also features a solid Lightweight bout between established veterans Tyson Griffin and Gesias Cavalcante. It is an evenly matched fight between two men who have experienced a slide in their careers. To them, the WSOF and their open title spots must represent a final shot at making a decent payday, so look for a bit of a grudge match, that could be good or could be a stalemate.
