The NBC Sports Network-televised portion of World Series of Fighting's debut event is now complete. ( 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.

Decent card. However, everything I've read suggests that the fighter contracts are ridiculous coupled with the fact that WSOF is paying NBC to televise the event(s)...not so sure its a sustainable business model if that really is the case. I hope I'm wrong.

Not a huge fan of Rumble but ill pick him to win this one probably by KO/TKO

Very nice debut card.
If wosf is smart they would have their fighters sign exclusive contracts

I hope he rewatches his last fight. He's another one of those guys who blasts his opponent, and while they are rocked goes for the takedown instead of keeping composure and landing what could be the final blow.

Rumble is making up for all that time he was injured while with the UFC, this is what his 3rd fight in about 6-8 months?

Its good to see Rumble is finally in a weight class he belongs. He is going to takes this KO.

i hope WSOF doesnt blow their wod on the first card and then not be able to put together as good of cards after this one. they got to keep up on recruiting big talent.

Nice to see Rumble staying busy

i wonder if Rumble staying busy is not only his way of showing the UFC how many Ws he can put up, but also to show that he has the work ethic to be a professional in the UFC.

I like this new attitude from 'Rumble'.

He's staying busy and fighting relatively high calibre fighters. I would expect to see him back in the UFC as an injury replacement early next year.
