The second World Series of Fighting (WSOF) show is set for this weekend. In the main event, there will be some familiar UFC names as Andrei Arlovski takes on Anthony Johnson.
It will be the second time Arlovski has headlined a WSOF card. He defeated Devin Cole in the promotion’s first show in November. That performance gave him four wins since he fell into a slump, where he had four consecutive losses, and made the former UFC heavyweight champion almost quit the sport.
Johnson will be debuting as heavyweight for the first time. He’s packed on lots of weight since 2011, when he fought as welterweight. While in the UFC, Johnson had trouble with weight, going over the limit on three occasions. He comes in with four wins and the last one being a first round knockout over D.J. Linderman at WSOF 1.
WSOF 2 is this Saturday from Revel Casino. The NBC Sports Network airs the show and FightLine will be there with the results and post-fight news. Coverage leading up until the show will continue all week.
Below is a video package highlighting the two fighters in the main event.
