A training injury has forced Anthony Johnson (15-4) to withdraw from World Series of Fighting 5.

Johnson's scheduled opponent, Mike Kyle (20-9-1), will now meet ex-UFC champ Andrei Arlovski (30-10) at heavyweight in the headliner of the Sept. 14 event. WSOF 5 takes place at Revel Atlantic City in Atlantic City, N.J. Its main card airs live on NBC Sports Network.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) confirmed the switch with the promotion following a report from MMAFighting.com.

WIth the change, the WSOF 5 card now includes:

Andrei Arlovski vs. Mike Kyle
Dave Branch vs. Danillo Villefort - middleweight tournament semifinals
Elvis Mutapcic vs. Jesse Taylor - middleweight tournament semifinals

Decent fight.

I hope the Pitbull gets a KO, but I never know what to expect from him anymore.

Still solid, should be a brutal finish by either.

MAK has been tearing through guys with his power strikes lately, he connects and it's all over for Arvloski. I just don't have that faith in AA anymore...I don't think I care if he makes a comeback or not really.

AA backs himself against the fence after a half of a round doing rather well in the middle of the cage, once he is against the cage he stops moving his head and becomes a human speed bag. The guy just cant help himself.

Arlovski knocks Kyle out in the first round is my prediction.
