Ryan Ford vs. Joel Powell Announced for WSOF Canada Inaugural Welterweight Championship
The World Series of Fighting will establish their Inaugural Welterweight Champion for their Canadian expansion (WSOF Canada) in February, as Ryan Ford takes on Joel Powell for the belt. If you’re confused or wondering about Steve Carl (the reigning WSOF welterweight champ), let us clear the air. President Ray Sefo intends on establishing national champions from each country included in the organization’s international expansion campaign. “..I want a WSOF national champion from every country!” said Sefo Tuesday. Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford (21-4 MMA, 0-0 WSOF) is an Alberta native riding an impressive five fight win streak that most recently saw him picking up a 5th round submission over Michael Hill at AFC 19 to win the AFC welterweight title. Ford trains at Montreal’s legendary Tristar gym alongside Canada’s most elite mixed martial artists such as Georges St-Pierre, Rory MacDonald, Francis Carmont, and others. Ford went undefeated (2-0) in Bellator in 2012, and will be fighting for the 170 pound title in his WSOF Canada debut.
