WSOF’s One Night Tournament Runs Into Major Problem

August 26, 2015 6:40 pm by BJPENN.COM News


The World Series of Fighting has plans to put on an old school one-night, eight-man tournament, however a major detail about the location could derail those plans.

Apparently, Washington State, where the event was planned, does not condone elimination tournaments and would not sanction the event.

Now, the organization will have to work and find a new venue for their tourney.

The WSOF VP, Ali Abdel-Zziz, told Ariel Helwani that they still plan on putting on the tournament, they will just need to locate a new venue to hold it in.

Are you guys excited for the tournament?
