XFC Suing WSOF for Signing Kalindra Faria to Fight Saturday
By FCF Staff
Not long before Kalindra Faria is scheduled to fight Jessica Aguilar at World Series of Fighting 15 tomorrow night, Xtreme Fighting Championship has announced it is suing the promotion for booking the bout.
The following statement has been released by the XFC, regarding Faria’s fight with the WSOF strawweight champ:
XFC has an exclusive contract with Ms. Kalindra Faria, which XFC provided to WSOF. Not withstanding the clear terms of Ms. Faria’s exclusive contract with XFC, WSOF has made it clear it intends to proceed with Ms. Faria’s bout planned for this weekend.
There is no question that XFC has a valid contract with Ms. Faria and that her fighting in a WSOF match this weekend violates XFC’s rights under that contract.
As a consequence of WSOF’s actions, XFC is filing suit against WSOF today in the United States District Court in Tampa. XFC is seeking to enforce its rights to the fullest extent of the law.

Saturday’s WSOF 15 will be hosted by the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida.
