World Series of Fighting's game plan for 2015 is coming into focus.

The two-year-old company, whose events to date have aired on NBC properties, will jump into the pay-per-view market, the company announced on Tuesday.

Additionally, WSOF intends to institute a fighter revenue-sharing system from PPV income.

"This is a proud day for the sport of mixed martial arts and our organization and one that we hope will create a better opportunity for the fighters who put everything on the line every time they step inside the cage," WSOF president Ray Sefo stated in a press release.

Under the plan, WSOF will debut on PPV in mid-2015. Participating fighters will share 50 percent of net revenue from each event, according to the company.

"If fighters can't earn a fair share of the money at the top," stated Sefo, "the fighters lose hope or become disenchanted with the sport, which impacts their commitment to training and preparing properly for title fights. That is about to change, thanks to this major step we are taking now fighters will train harder than ever to become a champion giving the fans some epic championship bouts to enjoy."
