Exclusive Interview With WSOF CEO Carlos Silva

This is one of the most pivotal times in the history of Mixed Martial Arts. Companies being sold. Finally being legal in all 50 states. Fighters becoming more focused than ever on their careers and futures. All of these things changing and bringing MMA that much closer to legitimacy amongst the public. Who better to discuss these topics with than the CEO of one of the top 3 MMA Organizations in the country? We spent some time with World Series of Fighting CEO Carlos Silva.

Mr. Silva was generous with his time and talked about all the happenings right now in not only World Series of Fighting, but in the MMA community as a whole.  Including his thoughts on if or when MMA would be considered on the same level as the NFL or MLB.  “I think it’s already on that level. I don’t think it has the potential, I think it’s already on the level….Are there still some sports that are bigger? Absolutely….I just think the kind of audience we have in MMA is so engaged….”

In the full interview we discuss how Carlos ended up in the fight business, his thoughts on fighter pay in the future, and even how he sometimes secretly jams out to UB40 “Red Red Wine” in his car. All that and much more. Listen and find out why it’s no surprise that World Series of Fighting is undoubtedly one of the top 3 organizations out there. Success hasn’t gone to his head, it’s just made him hungry.
