The MMA World Series of Fighting is an upstart MMA promotion in the United States, and it appears that a few big name kickboxers will be part of their roster.

Jerome Le Banner and Tyrone Spong are listed as part of the MMA World Series of Fighting's roster on its website. Both guys go wherever the money is, so they must've gotten some good deals.

Le Banner has a 3-2 record in MMA and has an upcoming MMA fight in Poland on September 15 for KSW against Marcin Rozalski. He's been in the US for some time now, in California and Las Vegas, training for that fight.

Spong has openly talked about fighting in MMA, and it just seemed like a matter of when he would. He's been at the Blackzillians camp with Alistair Overeem and Rashad Evans for a while, learning MMA while still competing in kickboxing. 

Both Le Banner and Spong have contracts with GLORY and will fight for them in the future. First, they'll be competing in the GLORY Grand Slam in December, a one night, sixteen man kickboxing tournament in Tokyo, Japan.
