The World Series of Fighting is bringing an eight-man, one-night only tournament to Phoenix at WSOF 25, and now we know the participants in that field.

The organization announced Wednesday that Luis  Palomino, Brian Foster, Mike Ricci, Islam Mamedov, Brian  Cobb, Jorge Patino, Joao Zeferino, and Rich Patishnock will all be a part of the field, which will crown a No. 1 contender in the lightweight division.

“We are excited to roll out our first-ever, one-night tournament filled with some of MMA’s top lightweight fighters, and to distinguish a new number one contender in this weight class that has been growing aggressively and is packed with world-class talent,” said WSOF President Ray Sefo in a press release.

The event comes to the Comerica Theatre on Nov. 20, and will air live on NBCSN. Quarterfinal matchups will be revealed in the coming weeks, as well as other fights filling out the card.
