World Series of Fighting has announced that they will be launching a WSOF Amateurs circuit in 2015, a division catered to finding amateur fighters aspiring to launch themselves into becoming a professional fighter in MMA.
Dubbed the ‘World Series of Fighting U.S. National Amateur Division’, WSOF will be scouting and developing talent in MMA, giving young fighters a stage to showcase their skills. Fighters that stand out and are deemed worthy will be rewarded with a multi-year, multi-fight contract with WSOF and be able to make their debut on the NBC Sports Network.
“We are proud to launch this exciting new division of World Series of Fighting and, through this, we will maintain the goal of finding the absolute best new talent that exists in the U.S.,” World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo said.
“For the first time in history,” continued Sefo, “amateur fighters who have the desire and the drive to turn professional and make a career for themselves in MMA, will be given a distinct path that will allow them to attain their goals of becoming future superstars in the professional ranks of our incredible sport.”
The amateur circuit will be divided into several regions in the United States including East, South, Mountain, and West.
Aspiring amateur fighters are currently able to register for a chance to tryout for WSOF Amateurs on their website: http://www.wsofamateurs.com/register.php?
