WSOF II Weigh-ins: Both fighters make weight, second event is a go
Well it looks like everything is official and good to go for the WSOF’s second event. All the fighters made weight, including the two fighters in the main event.
Anthony “Rumble” Johnson weighed in at an all time high of 230lbs, making him one of the few fighters in MMA history to compete in four seperate weight classes.
His opponent, long-time MMA heavyweight and former UFC champion Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski, weighed in at an expected 240lbs.
The interesting thing to note is that minus a minor height discrepancy the size difference is rather minimal and will more than likely prove to be insignificant.
World Series of fighting 2 will take place at the Revel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and will also a feature a co-main event between Tyson Nam and Marlon Moraes.
