WSOF returns in March, Andrei Arlovski vs Anthony “Rumble” Johnson set to headline

Well it looks like the remaining fight organizations outside of the UFC are not only surviving but continuing to steadily grow and get busier.

After recently signing a three-year deal with NBC Sports MMA Fighting has reported that the World Series of Fighting or “WSOF” has its second event. Set for Saturday, March 23rd 10pm EST at the Revel Sports & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, where former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will be headlining against former Welterweight, Middleweight, Light-heavyweight and now one-time Heavyweight Anthony “Rumble” Johnson.

Arlovski confirmed the news via his Twitter account on Monday. With soo many division changes it will be interesting to see how Johnson’s body takes to all the extra weight. So far he’s looked good at 205lbs with a four-fight win streak.

 Also fighting on the card will be Bantamweights Marlon Moraes who will face off against Tyson Nam, and Lightweight Justin Gaethje vs Gesias Cavalcante.

Will you be watching the event? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

    Anthony Johnson at one point your potential looked limitless, what the hell happened? Do you just like the fried chicken a little too much?

    Umm Anthony, I think we have to have a talk. You see in MMA what people do when they switch weight classes is they go down in weight to get the advantage.
    Anthony responds: "that's realllllly harrrrrrrd."
    Yes I know, it requires dieting and discipline.
    Anthony : " Big country, don't have too!"
    Ya well he is a heavy weight and you're a welter weight.
    ……
    KFC is now happy to sponsor the NEW Heavy Weight Anthony Rumble Johnson!!!

    To the above; Johnson belongs at LHW or HW. He never should have been at WW or MW because his body is built for the higher wt classes. That is why he wasn't making weight. Did you guys not notice that he made Vitor Belfort (former LHW champ in UFC and Cage Rage as well as UFC HW tourni winner) look small?

    This is desperate, seriously should arlovski even be stepping into a cage? The amount of times he has woke up face down from a brutal ko is just baffling, 7 of his 9 career losses are from KO, i know he has won 4 out of his last 5, (against average competition) although Johnson is first time HW he is still very dangerous. Its like the battle of f.u.c.ked up bodies, fried kidneys versus potential brain damage…….silly
