Volkmann was released by the UFC last month and quickly signed with WSOF. He was 6-4 under the UFC name with his last fight seeing him choked out by Bobby Green in round one.
Beerbohm also makes his WSOF debut, while riding five wins last year. He was 3-2 for Strikeforce, losing his last two and hadn’t competed for them since 2011.
They are the first fight announced for WSOF 3, which comes from Las Vegas, NV in April. No venue has been disclosed.
