As a fighter, Ray Sefo understands the difficulties and struggles to find a spot on a major fight card. That’s why when fighters send a message, whether it’s by social media or e-mail, he makes sure to respond.
The World Series of Fighting president joined The Roman Show.
“I am open to anybody that deserves an opportunity...we all deserve an opportunity, and there are guys that deserve to be on this platform on NBC,” he said. “It is rewarding to have that opportunity.”
Sefo is also a kickboxer and MMA fighter.

“[I get messages] at least every other day. I get a message by e-mail, social mail,” he said. “I get a message asking for an opportunity. I do my research. I get messages from guys that are 45-years-old and have a 3-5 record. My advice is get some wins, and let’s see what we can do when we come to your state or area.”
He also voiced his opinion about fighters fighting in their late 40’s or 50’s.
“In my experience in MMA and having experience with promotions, I am pretty sure all the other promotions don’t want to have a promotion with guys that are over 45 or 50,” he said. “In reality who wants to watch guys over their 50s? It’s a young man’s sport whether its MMA, boxing or kickboxing.”
He also discussed upcoming WSOF fight cards, fighters to watch and more.
