They put the kibosh on two events to put everything they had into their New Years Eve show at Madison Square Garden, and the talk around the water cooler was that when any organization cancels an event it’s never a good sign. Now the World Series of Fighting, which has been struggling under the burden of internal squabbles and lawsuits, frighteningly huge fighter salaries and virtually no real identity in the MMA space, is postponing their next show – is that Death lurking there in the shadows offering to play Ray Sefo in a game of chess?
World Series of Fighting has once again postponed an event.
WSOF 35, slated to take place Feb. 28, has been moved to March 18, per Ray Sefo, WSOF president. The organization had yet to announce a location for the card and Sefo wouldn’t say where the new event will be held. He also wouldn’t say whether it was moving locations from the original Feb. 28 date.
The lone fight announced for the card so far is Blagoy Ivanov vs. Shawn Jordan for the WSOF heavyweight title.
In October, the promotion canceled two events to help bolster its New Year’s Eve show at the Madison Square Garden Theatre in New York City.
In addition, the four-year-old promotion is in a bit of transitional period with its bantamweight and lightweight champions, Marlon Moraes and Justin Gaethje, exploring free agency, as well as welterweight champion Jon Fitch contemplating retirement due to potential health issues.
