scott-barrettThe Las Vegas-based World Series of Fighting promotion has added two more fighters to its roster as heavyweight Scott Barrett (13-3) and welterweight Valdir Araujo (14-4) have each signed multi-fight deals to the promotion.

WSOF officials today announced the new contracts.

“It’s always exciting to ink deals with exciting fighters, and today is no exception,” WSOF President Ray Sefo stated. “Both of these fighters have a history of putting on incredible performances, and I can’t wait to see what they can accomplish in our promotion.”

“The Bear” Barrett, a 29-year-old who currently trains with the Blackzilians, has fought professionally since 2007 and has earned 10 of this 13 career wins by knockout.

“Signing with the WSOF means the world to me,” Barrett stated. “Fighting for one of the biggest organizations out there is every fighter’s goal. Now it’s time to show everyone who I am and what I can do.

“Being part of the Blackzilians has made me a different and more dangerous fighter. I can’t wait to put it all together and get in the cage. I’m here to put on a show and get finishes.”

Meanwhile, Araujo is the reigning welterweight champion of Florida’s Championship Fighting Alliance promotion but is vacating the belt in favor of a WSOF contract.

“World Series of Fighting has got a lot of excitement surrounding their welterweight division right now,” Araujo stated. “I’m honored to be a part of that excitement and show the world that I’m a warrior and champion in this sport.”

Both fighters are expected to debut for the promotion in early 2014.
