Ray Sefo responds to XFC lawsuit: Documents falsified in attempt to shake down WSOF for 'outrageous fee'

World Series of Fighting (WSOF) President Ray Sefo has responded to the threat of a lawsuit from XFC President Myron Molotky. Sefo calls it a cheap stunt and a "demand" for an appearance fee that XFC is in no way entitled to receive.

Ray Sefo just told Myron Molotky to pump his brakes.

In response to the XFC's threat to file a lawsuit over Kalindra Faria's contract, the WSOF president insists that XFC has no contractual claim to Faria whatsoever, and that their threats are completely bogus.


"Based upon all of the hard evidence we have seen, we believe that the promoter from this other organization falsified documents to show that Kalindra Faria was already under contract with him when she signed a contract agreement with World Series of Fighting."

MMA Junkie is reporting that both Faria and her manager Jorge Patino signed affidavits denying Molotky's claims. Sefo summarizes Myron Molotky's lawsuit as little more than a money grab:

"This promoter demanded an outrageous fee from World Series of Fighting in exchange for releasing Kalindra from an exclusive contract that he alleges she signed prior to signing with us, and we refused his terms."

It doesn't seem like Molotky has a leg to stand on, but there's no word on him withdrawing his lawsuit or backing down on his threats. Meanwhile, Faria's fight with WSOF strawweight champion Jessica Aguilar went ahead as scheduled last night (Sat., Nov. 15, 2014) and you can get the full results here.
