The World Series of Fighting has added a former UFC fighter to the heavyweight roster, inking Jared Rosholt to a contract.
Rosholt was a former NCAA Div. I wrestling standout at Oklahoma State University before embarking on his current career in MMA. He is 14-3 overall.
Along with signing Rosholt, the WSOF also inked fellow heavyweight Ashley Gooch to a deal. Both fighters are expected to have their debuts announced shortly.
“We are excited to welcome one of the sport’s top, free-agent heavyweight stars in Jared Rosholt, as well as veteran Ashley Gooch, who has been on fire of late, to the World Series of Fighting roster and look forward to seeing how each is able to contend in the decagon cage where we have a growing number of exciting and fast-rising stars vying for our coveted championship that is held by Blagoy Ivanov,” said World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo.
Rosholt was a three-time All-American and 2010 NCAA Div. I heavyweight runner-up. He went 6-2 during his UFC run, including a victory over Stefan Struve.
Gooch, who is 10-4, has won eight in a row, including seven knockout wins and two more via submission.
