It seems World Series of Fighting is continuing its growth in women’s mixed martial arts. Recently, the organization signed top strawweight fighter Jessica Aguilar. The thirty-one year old American Top Team fighter has an overall professional WMMA record of 16-4. Since her last defeat in 2010, she has won seven fights in a row. She is widely considered to be the number one strawweight fighter in the world.
“Women’s mixed martial arts is now a very big part of the sport and has gained so much attention and popularity in recent years, and we’re very proud to announce the launch of World Series of Fighting women’s division,” said WSOF President Ray Sefo according to MMAJunkie.com. “To not only add a women’s division, but to kick it off by signing one of the absolute best women fighters in the game is a statement to what the future holds for World Series of Fighting’s women’s division.”
Aguilar originally fought under Bellator, but was subsequently released from the organization following their decision to stop staging women’s MMA.
As of yet, WSOF has not made any official announcements regarding when she will make her debut and who her first opponent will be.
