Apex Sports Agency (ASA) revealed today that it has signed UFC veteran Mike Ciesnolevicz to a contract, and is now handling his career. ASA has also revealed its first move for Ciesnolevicz, inking him to a multi-fight deal with a rising MMA promotion in the World Series of Fighting (WSOF).
Ciesnolevicz (19-4)is a light heavyweight that has won back-to-back fights since being released from the UFC in 2009. He went (1-1) inside the octagon with neither fight going to the judges. Ciesnolevicz has only fought once in 2010 and then once more in 2011. He hasn’t competed since defeating Bruce Nelson via TKO in May 2011. Ciesnolevicz commented on this new chapter in his career:
“I am very excited to sign with both Apex and the WSOF. One of the main points that attracted me is that they are all about putting the fighters first. I believe the WSOF has the ability to do big things in the MMA world and I’m honored to be part of this great organization.
I would like to thank Jason Chambers and Apex Sports Agency for guiding me to this deal with WSOF and into the second half of my career. I have twenty-five professional fights, and I’m looking forward to the next twenty-five with ASA.
As for my fans, they can expect to see a very well-rounded display of mixed martial arts the next time I compete. I have a few secret weapons that I have been dying to unleash!”
It’s not known who Ciesnolevicz will compete against in his first matchup under the World Series of Fighting promotion. The promotion is expected to hold its first event sometime in November.
