LAS VEGAS (May 18, 2015) â€“World Series of Fighting (WSOF.com) has released womenâ€™s world strawweight (115 pounds) champion Jessica â€œJAGâ€ Aguilar from her remaining contractual obligations that spanned one additional fight with the world championship Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) promotion, so that she can ideally pursue competition where it is strongest in her weight division.
â€œWe wish Jessica all the best, and hope that she will achieve everything she wants to in her career that is blossoming,â€ said WSOF President Ray Sefo.Â â€œWe sat down with Jessica and her manager and we all agreed that she needs to move on to a place where she can compete against the best 115 pound women in the world.
â€œWe have an incredible and fast-growing roster of world-class athletes at WSOF,â€ continued Sefo, â€œbut we do not have the best fighters in this particular womenâ€™s weight class, so it was time to shake hands and amicably part ways.â€

In the main event of a world championship doubleheader, reigning WSOF world bantamweight champion Lance Palmer (9-1) of Sacramento, Calif. will put his title on the line for the first time when he collides with Chris Horodecki (21-5-1) of London, Ontario, Canada.
