The event will be shown on NBC Sports Network as part of the three-year partnership between the network and WSOF. The deal calls for a minimum of six live WSOF events per year to be shown on NBC Sports Network, which reaches over 80 million homes.

"We are thrilled to call NBC Sports Network the home of World Series of Fighting," WSOF president Ray Sefo said in a statment. "This partnership will allow us to build the World Series of Fighting brand of world-class MMA competition before a dedicated national audience of passionate sports fans and place our athletes on the big stage that they deserve."

Revel hosted its first MMA show last June 22, when the UFC returned to Atlantic City after a seven-year hiatus. An announced crowd of 5,000 saw lightweight contender Gray Maynard earn a five-round split decision over Clay Guida. As of Monday, the UFC was not scheduled to return to Atlantic City this year.

WSOF has not announced the competitors for the March 23 card. Ticket information will also be announced at a later date.
