World Series of Fighting will be crowning their first champion in the promotion’s young history, when Josh Burkman and Steve Carl step into the cage in the main event of Saturday’s event. In anticipation of the inaugural championship bout, WSOF has unveiled their title belt, which you can see above.

“We wanted to make sure our championship belt was reflective of our commitment to excellence,” World Series of Fighting President Way Sefo stated in an official release.
