kris-mccray-5.jpgThe lineup for this month’s “World Series of Fighting 2: Arlovski vs. Johnson” event is complete with three new preliminary-card bouts.

The event takes place March 23 at Revel Atlantic City in New Jersey. The main card, including a heavyweight headliner between Andrei Arlovski (19-9) and Anthony Johnson (14-4), airs on NBC Sports Network.

Officials previously announced most of the card, but three prelim fighters now have opponents.

Danillo Villefort (13-4), who’s competed for organization ranging from the WEC to UFC to Strikeforce, looks for his fifth win in six fights when he meets fellow welterweight and “The Ultimate Fighter 11? runner-up Kris McCray (8-4), whose three-fight win streak recently came to an end with a split-decision defeat to Mike Wade.

Igor Gracie (5-3), whose four-fight win streak came to an end with a ONE FC 5 loss to Jung Hwan Cha, takes on fellow welterweight Richard Patishnock (4-1), a New Jersey prospect who also looks to rebound from a recent defeat.

Finally, welterweight Ozzy Dugulubgov (3-1) takes on fellow Northeast product Chris Wade (5-0), who’s posted an unbeaten streak in the popular Ring of Combat promotion.
