“Every time we hold an event, we always work hard to put on the most exciting fights possible,” said World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo. “World Series of Fighting 10 will be no exception and will deliver one exciting fight after another at The Joint in The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, which is such a fantastic venue we decided to return on June 21. With these two championship fights leading the way – not to mention a third one on the way – it’s going to be an incredible night.”
