The Mike Kyle fans saw in the past is ancient history. In his World Series of Fighting (WSOF) debut, Kyle comes off a 21 knockout of veteran Travis Wiuff.
“This is one of my biggest opportunities,” said Kyle during the WSOF 5 media call. “I feel great. I’m coming off a great win, a knockout over Travis Wiuff. I’m starting to feel comfortable in the ring again, and I’m really excited to go out there and perform and put on the show that I’m capable of doing.”
The main event of WSOF 5 is Kyle vs. Andrei Arlovski.
When Strikeforce closed their doors, Kyle wasn’t one of fighters absorbed into the UFC roster. Kyle had spent a few years in the UFC years back.
Andrei Arlovski is a former UFC heavyweight champ who makes his third appearance for WSOF. He’s 1-1 for the promotion with a defeat from Anthony Johnson in March.
WSOF 5 is September 14 from Revel Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
