On Saturday night, the World Series of Fighting made its debut, and it went down as a total success. Highly regarded kickboxer Tyrone Spong made his MMA debut, and he won it with a "walk-off" knockout in the first round.

In addition to Spong's victory, former UFC welterweight and catchweight fighter Anthony Johnson picked up his third straight victory at light heavyweight and fourth straight overall since leaving the UFC. Then, in the main event, Andrei Arlovski got back on the winning track, as he knocked out Devin Cole in the first round.

Miguel Torres was undoubtedly the biggest loser of the night, though, as he was upset by Marlon Moraes, who took home a split-decision victory. Moraes will now face Tyson Nam at the second World Series of Fighting card, which will take place on January 26 in Las Vegas, Nev. It was also announced that the third WSOF would likely be taken "on the road."

After the success of this first card, expect there to be several more high-quality cards coming from Ray Sefo and the World Series of Fighting.
