The NBC Sports Network-televised portion of World Series of Fighting's debut event is now complete.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with sources close to the promotion that a light-heavyweight contest between Anthony Johnson (13-4) and D.J. Linderman (14-3) is the sixth and final contest planned for the broadcast.
The event takes place Nov. 3 at Las Vegas' Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
An 11-time UFC veteran, Johnson fights for the third time as a light heavyweight. The 6-foot-2 "Rumble" competed mostly as a welterweight during his time in the octagon but has since elected to compete at 205 pounds, where he's racked up a pair of knockout wins over Jake Rosholt and Esteves Jones in regional shows. He's 5-1 in his past six contests.
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old Linderman has been competing as a heavyweight in recent outings but will drop back down to 205 pounds for this contest. Currently 5-1 in his past six contests, Linderman has competed professionally since 2008 and has never lost a bout via stoppage. He currently stands as Cage Warriors Fighting Championship's heavyweight champion. LINK - It's nice!
