If your MMA diet primarily consists of UFC cards and the occasional Bellator event, then you may be unaware that World Series of Fighting’s President Ray Sefo, is fighting at the promotion’s fourth card tonight. Now that’s not the type of thing you see every day is it?
Of course, Sefo happens to be a highly decorated and experienced kickboxer, so the fact he’s competing on the card isn’t that terribly shocking. That said, the 42 year-old fighter has competed in 100 professional bouts now, including MMA, boxing and kickboxing, and knows he can’t keep fighting forever. In fact, Sefo recently told MMA Frenzy.com that:
This fight is probably my last fight. My first goal in fighting was to win three fights, the second goal was to become a national champion, and the third goal was to become a world champion, and the fourth was to become a K-1 fighter and fight the best in the world. I have won multiple titles and have been inducted into the Martial Arts Masters Hall of Fame.
My last goal was to get to 100 fights [combined] and I am at 100, I thought I had 96, but I spoke to my coach in New Zealand, who I became world champion with, and found out that my fight this Saturday will be 101.
I have been very blessed with how my career has gone, and I can’t thank all my friends, family, and everybody involved with my life enough. This was not a one man scenario. I could never have achieved anything in my career by myself. So this is possibly my last fight.
Although tonight’s tilt could be Sefo’s last, WSOF has booked him to fight Bellator vet Dave Huckaba, who is 9-1 in his last ten fights and has a 20-5 record. The 39 year-old also has ton of TKO and KO wins on his resume. It’s going to be interesting to see how it all plays out.
WSOF 4 will be hosted by Ontario, California’s Citizes Business Bank Arena and will be broadcast live on The NBC Sports Network.
