The partnership will commence on Saturday, Jan. 23 when over two dozen figures from from WSOF rostr will become available for video chat sessions with fans during the WSOF27: Firmino vs. Fodor event live from the FedExForum in Memphis, Tenn.

“We are thrilled to partner with Talk2Legends and be able to give fans the opportunity to get to know their favorite fighters on a very personal, one-on-one basis,” said WSOF Ray Sefo.
