World Series of Fighting Inks Ex-UFC Lightweight Jacob Volkmann
World Series of Fighting
has signed former
to a multi-fight deal.
Sherdog.com confirmed the signing with a source close to the Las
Vegas-based promotion following an initial report from
MMAFighting.com. Volkmann was recently cut from the UFC along with
15 other fighters following his defeat to Bobby Green
earlier this month at UFC 156.
Prior to that setback, Volkmann, 32, had gone 6-1 as a lightweight,
posting five straight wins over the likes of Danny
Castillo and Antonio
McKee before submitting to a triangle-armbar at the hands of
British submission specialist Paul Sass.
Known for his grinding style and superior wrestling, “Christmas”
owns eight of his 15 career wins by submission and has yet to
record a knockout in five years as a pro.
The WSOF’s Nov. 3 debut aired live on the NBC Sports Network and
Johnson deliver a brutal, one-punch knockout to Bellator
Linderman before former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei
Arlovski iced Devin Cole in
the evening’s main event. A former welterweight-cum-light
heavyweight, Johnson will now move up to the heavyweight division
to take on Arlovski in the WSOF
2 headliner. That March 23 event will also see Tyson Nam and
Moraes square off in a pivotal bantamweight affair from Revel
Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.
The WSOF 2 undercard will stream live on Sherdog.com.
