WSOF announces one-night, eight-man lightweight tourney

Dating back to the early days of mixed martial arts, one thing that always got fans excited was the action-packed one-night tournaments. Since the unified rules fell into place, it the one-night tournaments have been few and far between.

However, thanks to World Series of Fighting, we will be getting a great blast from the past.

The promotion announced on Monday that they will hold a one-night, eight-man lightweight tournament on Nov. 20 to crown a No. 1 contender for the promotion’s lightweight championship.

The tournament will take place at WSOF 25 in Seattle.

It will be interesting to see exactly how the tournament is structed in order for the athletic commission to sanction the event, but WSOF will update us with that information once the hurdles are cleared.

For now, we can just sit back and wait for the incredible night of action that is ahead of us.
