Anthony Johnson vs. D.J. Linderman completes World Series of Fighting 1's main card
(mmajunkie.com)
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.

Love of fighting leads ex-WWE star Dave Bautista to MMA debut
(mmajunkie.com)
Dave Bautista spent the better part of a decade pretending to get punched in the face as a pro wrestler. Now that the 43-year-old heavyweight is less than a week away from his first chance to do it for real as a mixed martial arts fighter, he can hardly wait. The question he keeps hearing over and over – the one he can't seem to supply a satisfactory answer to – is, why? "I know some people have a hard time understanding it," said the former World Wrestling Entertainment champion, who's set to make his professional MMA debut in Providence, R.I., on Saturday (pay-per-view, $29.95). "I'm obviously never going to make the money that I made in the WWE, and it's not like I think I'm going to go become UFC champion." So why do it? Why suffer through an eight-week training camp, which Bautista described as "by far the hardest thing" he's ever done, just to fight on the small circuit against an unknown opponent? "I just want the experience," he said. "I don't have any ulterior motive. I just want to do it because I love it so much."

Rebney explains contract matching in wake of Tyson Nam ordeal
(mmajunkie.com)
Bellator chief Bjorn Rebney said his promotion was trying to give Tyson Nam an opportunity when it greenlighted a fight with bantamweight champ Eduardo Dantas – despite having released the fighter two months prior. Now that Nam has capitalized on that opportunity, Rebney said, Bellator wants its own opportunity to match other offers the fighter has received since his stunning KO of Dantas. "If you have an agreement with someone, and ultimately you give them a great opportunity … when that agreement is over, you have the right to match," - You gonna cry Bjorn? Do I see a little bit of moisture forming in the corner of your eye?

Also on the card, WEC and UFC vet Antonio Banuelos (20-8), who meets Josh Sampo this coming weekend at Legacy 14, has already been slated for his second LFC fight.
