World Series of Fighting has turned itself into a Professional Fighters League! According to the official press release, the inaugural season will be starting January 2018.
President of Professional Fighters League’s fighting operation emailed all the fighters on the roster to inform them of the revolutionary news.
Here’s what he emailed:
Certainly some points stick out – most notably that every fighter will have regular fights totalling in no less than 3 a year in addition to a regular monthly paycheck.
Season one of the new league will run for 10 months. Initially it will feature 7 weight classes although it’s unclear which exactly at the time.
The fighters with the best records will move to playoff and then championship round.
Promotional officials also wouldn’t comment on what will become of current WSOF champions Blagoy Ivanov (heavyweight), Jon Fitch (welterweight), Justin Gaethje (lightweight), Andre Harrison (featherweight) or Bekbulat Magomedov (bantamweight).
