The promotion and broadcast partner NBC Sports Network on Thursday announced a 30-day replay schedule that will see the fight card air an additional 12 times.

WSOF 2 took place at New Jersey’s Revel Atlantic City. The evening’s main card aired on NBC Sports Network following prelims that streamed online.

In the main event, Anthony Johnson (15-4) moved up to heavyweight for the first time in his career and took a unanimous decision from former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski (19-10). It was Johnson’s fifth win since his UFC release.

In the co-main event, Marlon Moraes (10-4-1) won for the fourth straight time and second time under the WSOF banner with a first-round knockout of Tyson Nam (12-5). And Josh Burkman (25-9) won for the seventh time in eight fights since being cut from the UFC in 2008 and earned a fight with Jon Fitch with his knockout of fellow UFC vet Aaron Simpson (12-5). Plus, David Branch (12-3) dominated Paulo Filho (23-5-2), and Justin Gaethje (8-0) stayed unbeaten by stopping Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante (17-7-1) with a first-round cut.

“We are coming off an outstanding night of world-class MMA action and are thrilled that our television partner, NBC Sports Network, has embraced the World Series of Fighting product to such an extent that they are going to showcase our latET event a dozen times over the course of the next month,” World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo stated.
