According to World Series of Fighting -- soon to be known as the Professional Fighters League-- President Ray Sefo the organization has just lost its lightweight champion to the UFC.

Gaethje's manager Ali Abdelaziz responded to Ray Sefo's tweet.

Gaethje (17-0) is the only lightweight champion the promotion has ever known and has eleven finished in his twelve fights. Calling him the biggest draw in the company isn't hyperbole.

It's been widely speculated that Gaethje would test free agency and the UFC was amongst the top of his list. The UFC has yet to confirm the signing but a deal is expected soon.

Presuming the deal gets done, Gaethje will now join a stacked UFC lightweight division that includes , Khabib Nurmagomedov, , and of course UFC lightweight champion "The Notorious" .
