With the absence of the Maximum Fighting Championship, and the UFC all but abandoning the Canadian market, World Series of Fighting has become the defacto number one promotion north of the border at this point.

World Series of Fighting has come under fire lately from former welterweight champion Steve Carl, and it seems like everyone wants to pile on the promotion.
