Ford And WSOF Finally Make The Real Deal
Canada’s 4th ranked Welterweight and last AFC Welterweight champion Ryan Ford has officially signed with the World Series of Fighting. Sherdog.com confirmed the signing Thursday night with a WSOF official.
A date for Ford’s debut has not been set but it’s expected to take place in early 2014.
Ford, now a member of Tristar Gym, has been on a tear of late winning 9 of his last 10 fights including victories over Karo Parisyan, Pete Spratt and Luis Santos. “The Real Deal” is the last reigning AFC Welterweight champion earning the title over TUF season 16 alum and current WSOF signee Mike Hill this past July. A proven finisher Ford has finished 19 of his 21 wins between the bells including 11 TKO/KO wins.
