Company officials confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that MMA legend Bas Rutten, veteran combat-sports broadcaster Michael Schiavello, and Olympic gold medalist/pro wrestler Kurt Angle have been selected for the broadcast team.

WSOF 1 takes place Nov. 3 and airs live on NBC Sports Network.

The event, which takes place at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, features former WEC champion and recent UFC competitor Miguel Torres in the headliner against an undetermined opponent. Big-show vets Josh Burkman, Gerald Harris, Bobby Lashley, Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante, John Gunderson and others have already been announced for the still-developing card.

Can't wait for Bas and Schiavello!

I don't know if Angle is any good, never heard him.

I don't see Angle being that great but Rutten/Schiavello is a solid pair.

Schiavello knows his stuff but as funny as the jenna haze comments can be I really think he should lose them. How offten do you hear any other commentator make porn joke????? You don't. Bas has been awful for years but everyone seems to love him. He never seems to study past fights he simply says what he thinks a guy can do without check if the guy has the tools to do it. I don't like him. Kurt well he knows nothing about MMA hes a jack ass. His brother is my sisters personal trainer hes a jerk off.

Angle and Rutten sounds like a dick measuring contest waiting to happen.
