World Series of Fighting (WSOF) president Ray Sefo said at yesterday’s press conference that former UFC fighter Tyson Griffin would debut for the promotion shortly. TATAME reports that Griffin vs. veteran JZ Cavalcante in a lightweight bout is the first addition to the WSOF 4.
Griffin was 1-4 in that final UFC stretch before being let go in the fall of 2011. Almost a year later and he took a decision against Efrain Escudero via decision at RFA 4.
Cavalcante is even in his WSOF run at 1-1. On their last card, he took a doctor stoppage over Justin Gaethje.
WSOF 4 will be from the Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, CA. The main card airs live on the NBC Sports Network.
