XFC sues WSOF over Kalindra Faria contract dispute

Wayne Camargo

Kalindra Faria will fight Jessica Aguilar for the WSOF strawweight championship on Saturday night, and the promotion will have a fight in court because of that bout.

Faria fought twice for Xtreme Fighting Championships International this year, and XFC claims that the Brazilian fighter is still signed with the promotion.

"XFC has an exclusive contract with Ms. Kalindra Faria, which XFC provided to WSOF," read a statement sent to on Friday. "Notwithstanding the clear terms of Ms. Faria’s exclusive contract with XFC, WSOF has made it clear it intends to proceed with Ms. Faria’s bout planned for this weekend.

"There is no question that XFC has a valid contract with Ms. Faria and that her fighting in a WSOF match this weekend violates XFC’s rights under that contract."

"As a consequence of WSOF’s actions, XFC is filing suit against WSOF today in the United States District Court in Tampa.  XFC is seeking to enforce its rights to the fullest extent of the law."

Aguilar vs. Faria title fight is featured on WSOF 15’s main card in Tampa, Fla., on Saturday night.
