The inaugural event of WSOF Canada took place last Friday, February 21 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada at the Edmonton Expo Centre. But aired on tape delay the following Friday on NBC Sports Network.
Among the fights was 2008 Olympian Steve Mocco (4-1) losing for the first time in his career, to Canadian Smealinho Rama (7-1) via Unanimous Decision. And to cap off the event, former Aggression Fighting Championships welterweight champion, Ryan Ford (22-4) pulled off a spectacular front kick knockout in the opening round of the welterweight title fight against Joel Powell (7-4).
