Blachowicz: I feel cheated by WSoF financially and athletically


Current KSW Light heavyweight Jan Blachowicz recently failed to come to terms with World Series of Fighting, and claims he was sent a contract, signed and returned it, and then was sent a second, far different one. He reached out via social networks to complain.

I would like to explain the reason, why my September’s fight for the World Series of Fighting organization, won’t unfortunately happen. Initially I was offered the fight against renowned light heavyweight, a former UFC fighter Anthony Johnson, which I gladly accepted.

However, weeks later the rumors that Johnson will face Mike Kyle in Atlantic City started to circulate and were later confirmed by WSoF.I believe that rumors were a part of the pressure that World Series of Fighting executives had tried to put on me. Initially I was offered a one-fight deal to face Johnson, which I liked since my victory would have gotten me closer to my dream â fighting for the UFC. However, after I had signed the papers, WSOF representative changed their mind and sent me a four-fight exclusive deal, which with all additional clauses would tie my with the promotion for the next three years and I couldn’t agree to that.

On June 1st I began my preparations for the September’s fight, but now I feel cheated by WSOF both in financial and sporting terms. In order to face Anthony Johnson I called off my KSW 24 appearance and I’m left with no fight in September, which I obviously don’t like. Now I’m focused on helping my teammate Daniel Omiela?czuk in his training camp before his UFC debut.

I will prove that World Series of Fighting organization made a mistake. I know my worth and I will show in my KSW outings that I deserve a chance to test myself against the elite fighters of the sport. MMA is my life and I won’t give up my dreams. Follow my fights for KSW and hopefully you’ll see me in the UFC soon.

Hopefully he ends up in the UFC soon. He's probably a top 5 non-UFC LHW right now. Very good grappler.
