World Series of Fighting has retained the services of rising bantamweight Timur Valiev for the foreseeable future.
WSOF on Monday announced that Valiev signed a new “multi-fight, multi-year agreement” to remain with the Las Vegas-based organization. Specifics of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are thrilled to extend our agreement with Timur Valiev, one of the brightest, young prospects and most exciting rising stars in our entire sport,” WSOF President Ray Sefo stated in a release.
Valiev, 25, has not tasted defeat since his professional debut in 2010 and is currently riding a nine-fight winning streak. The native of Dagestan, Russia, has won three bouts inside the WSOF cage, most recently notching a first-round stoppage of Bellator veteran Ed West in March.
Valiev’s fourth bout under the WSOF banner is expected to be announced soon. The organization will hold WSOF 22 “Palhares vs. Shields” this Saturday, Aug. 1, in Las Vegas.
