World Series of Fighting (WSOF) postpones upcoming WSOF 35 event (again)


According to MMA Fighting, World Series of Fighting (WSOF) has postponed WSOF 35, which was slated to go down on Feb. 28 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and rescheduled it to March 18, 2017, at a location that is yet-to-be determined.

The event only had one fight confirmed thus far, which was a Heavyweight championship bout between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) contender Shawn Jordan taking on Blagoy Ivanov.

If you recall, the mixed martial arts (MMA) league canceled WSOF 34 — which was set to go down on Nov. 12 in Loveland, Colorado -- and the original WSOF 35 event last year — which was pegged to go down on Dec. 3, 2016, in Everett, Washington — to stack its year-end event in New York, N.Y., which ultimately became WSOF 34: "Gaethje vs. Firmino" and went down on Dec. 31, 2016.

WSOF isn’t the only fight company known for reshuffling dates and events, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) also has a recent history of canceling and/or postponing cards. In fact, UFC most recently postponed an event scheduled for Jan. 21 in Anaheim, Calif., until Aug. 2017, due to a lack of headliners. In addition, UFC 209 — which was scheduled for Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York -- became UFC 208 ... and so on.

As for WSOF’s recent postponement, no details regarding the move were given, so no need to start pushing the panic button just yet.
