Rumors were swirling that the third World Series of Fighting (WSOF) show would introduce its first championship. Those rumors have been shot down by WSOF president Ray Sefo who has pegged later this year as a likely date.
Sefo tweeted the following:
“There is a lot of talk about @MMAWorldSeries titles, to clear things up WSOF will not be doing any title fights till the end of 2013”
There had been discussion that a lightweight, welterweight or middleweight title was in the works after the second show, this past weekend. WSOF 2 didn’t go perfect as there was trouble about weigh-in procedures and the actual cage. The show was only approved hours before the first fight.
WSOF 3 is set for June 14 from a venue to be announced in Las Vegas, NV. John Gunderson vs. Dan Lauzon and Jon Fitch vs. Josh Burkman have been announced.
