The Score Fighting Series Ceases Operations
The Score Fighting Series (SFS) has ceased all operations immediately as it has been shutdown by new parent company Rogers Sportsnet. Multiple sources have confirmed with Top MMA News on the unexpected decision from Rogers. All tentatively rumored shows have been cancelled.
The Score Fighting Series, run by Brendan Fyfe, emerged on the fight scene in June of 2011 and put on seven events in southern Ontario. Its last event was November 23 in Hamilton, Ontario. The Score Fighting Series brought such rising stars as Jordan Mein, Jesse Ronson and Josh Hill to the forefront of the Canadian MMA scene.
The Score had tentatively planned on running six events in 2013 prior to its purchase by Rogers and had recently performed very well on AXS TV in the United States.
Unaffected by the news is Sportsnet’s UFC programming that included UFC Connected, The Ultimate Fighter, and live UFC events.
