The World Series of Fighting (WSOF) will be one step closer to having their first champion, as a four person middleweight tournament will begin in September.
The match-ups for the competition include Dave Branch vs. Danillo Villefort and Elvis Mutapcic vs. Jesse Taylor.
Branch and Villefort won in their WSOF debuts. They took decision wins over former UFC fighters.
Mutapcic defended MFC’s middleweight title this past February and is on a five fight win streak. Taylor is the Cage Warriors middleweight champion and has been bouncing between several divisions.
WSOF 5 is September 14 at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. The event’s main card airs on the NBC Sports Network with a light heavyweight headliner of Anthony Johnson and Mike Kyle.
