Report: WCO Headed to Japan for Next Show

The World Cagefighting Organization, fresh off of an embarrassing cancellation of a schedule event earlier this month, will now head to Japan for it’s next event, which will be likely titled ““Unbreakable”.

The news comes from Chris Howie of MMA News.

The event earlier this month was scheduled for January 12th at the San Diego Sports Arena but was cancelled due to insufficent funds gathered by the promoters of the event.

According to CSAC executive director Armando Garcia, the commission was informed that the WCO and Valor Fighting, who were co-promoting the event together, would not have enough money to pay the fighters competing on the card.

WCO President Bruce Bellocchi has big plans for the venture in Japan. Japanese businessman Nori Igawa is even going as far as to say that the promotion could serve as a replacement for PRIDE.

“The goal is to replace PRIDE and give the Japanese fans another top organization to be excited about. I believe the vision of the WCO deserves to be realized,” Igawa told MMA News.
