The main card for World Series of Fighting’s sophomore event has been finalized. As expected, the night showcases a heavyweight shootout between former UFC stars Andrei Arlovski (Pictured) and Anthony Johnson.
Marlon Moraes and Tyson Nam battle to become the promotion’s inaugural bantamweight champion in the co-featured attraction.
Revel Resorts & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey hosts the March 23th festivities.
“We are excited to bring the World Series of Fighting brand of MMA to Atlantic City, where some of the greatest fights in history have taken place,” said WSOF President Ray Sefo. “Andrei Arlovski, Anthony Johnson and Marlon Moraes are all coming off superb performances on our inaugural fight card, and Tyson Nam has been on fire of late, so we felt that it was essential to showcase these stars at the top of our first card on the East Coast.”
