Lightweight JZ Cavalcante

On Tuesday, World Series of Fighting confirmed their eighth show will go down January 18 inside Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante (pictured) and Justin Gaethje headline the festivities, as they battle for the promotion’s inaugural lightweight title.

Third time’s the charm, hopefully, for Anthony Johnson and Mike Kyle. After having their shootout scratched on two previous occasions, the two will co-headline the event.

In addition, a scrap between Cody Bollinger and Tyson Nam was reported for the roster.

NBC Sports Network is expected to broadcast the main card live.

Here is the card’s current lineup:

Cody Bollinger vs. Tyson Nam

Anthony Johnson vs. Mike Kyle

Justin Gaethje vs. Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante (For inaugural WSOF lightweight title)
