The event featured Marlon Moraes defend his Bantamweight Championship against Joseph Barajas.  Moraes won handily.

2016 WSOF Events

WSOF 27 – 211,000

WSOF 28 – 161,000

Payout Perspective:

Where the event was held made more news than the actual fights.  The ratings are off from last month which may be due to the amount of college basketball on cable as well as going up against Bellator and UFC the same weekend.

    Oh dear. Who won the volleyball match tho? Lol

    I hope Sefo abandons this sinking ship, and goes back to fighting (he barely owns any of WSOF anyway). Bellator kickboxing is coming, and I hear legends do well on Spike.

    WAR SEFO

    Nah, let’s not make any excuses for WSOF. They just pull in shitty ratings PERIOD. They have a crappy production, on a small time network (who really watches NBC Sports) and they are trying to keep up with the big leagues but are as small time as Legacy and RFA. They’re next stop is going to be on AXS TV. They look like they’re on a sinking ship.

    The WSOF did not go up against Bellator or the UFC. Bellator was on Friday and UFC came on Sunday, and WSOF had Saturday all to themselves. They just suck and that’s the bottomline.

Got something to say?
