WSOF postpones another event

January 17, 2017

MMA Fighting reports that the World Series of Fighting has postponed its WSOF 35 event set to take place February 28th. It has now been moved back to March 18th per WSOF president Ray Sefo.

No location has been announced for the moved card which had just one fight announced as of now: Blagoy Ivanov vs. Shawn Jordan.

You might recall that the promotion canceled two events to help with its New Year’s Eve show in New York City.

The promotion is in flux as bantamweight and lightweight champions, Marlon Moraes and Justin Gaethje are exploring free agency while welterweight champion Jon Fitch is contemplating retirement.

In addition, there are a spate of lawsuits involving the investors and owners of WSOF.

Payout Perspective:

With the promotion looking like it’s in turmoil, moving its next event seems like a harbinger of things to come. The promotion has failed to gain traction in its existence and with its core fighters perhaps moving on, we might see WSOF fold in 2017.

    Shame, its actually a good organization that puts on good fights with hungry fighters. I never thought the NBC Sports deal was the best though and I never knew when their cards were on as the advertising was non-existent

    I thought putting two-division champion Dave Branch on the NBC Sports Network portion of WSOF 34 was a bad move by the matchmaker and promotion in general. Even moving WSOF 35 card to March 18th with UFC Fight Night London will hurt viewership even if you put it during the day because of March Madness.

Got something to say?
