WSOF 2 main card includes Burkman-Simpson, Branch-Filho, Cavalcante-Gaethje | News
The main card is set for World Series of Fighting's sophomore show, and a new welterweight matchup between Josh Burkman (24-9) and Aaron Simpson (12-4) is the latest addition to the five-fight main card, officials today announced. |
The event takes place March 23 at Revel Atlantic City in New Jersey. The main card airs on NBC Sports Network.
Burkman and Simpson are both former UFC fighters. Burkman, a cast member on "The Ultimate Fighter 2," is 6-1 since a 10-fight UFC stint from 2005-2008. He most recently scored a unanimous-decision victory over Gerald Harris in WSOF's debut show back in November.
Simpson, meanwhile, fights for the first time since his UFC release, which came after a solid 7-4 run in the organization. In fact, Simpson, a two-time NCAA Division I wrestler, was on a 4-1 run before a recent knockout loss to Mike Pierce. It was his second fight since dropping from middleweight to welterweight.
