Andrei Arlovski doesn't buy the "glass jaw" talk (MMA Weekly)

The World Series of Fighting (WSoF) on Monday announced a new three-year television partnership with NBC Sports Network, and shortly thereafter Andrei Arlovski took to Twitter to confirm the main event.

Arlovski will square off with Anthony “Rumble” Johnson at the WSoF 2 event on March 23 at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. The bout is expected to take place in the heavyweight division.

Both men fought on the promotion’s premier event. Arlovski defeated Devin Cole by TKO stoppage midway through the opening round of their heavyweight bout. Johnson, fight at 205 pounds, knocked DJ Linderman out cold, also in the first round.

That was back in November.

Arlovski has since won a unanimous decision over Mike Hayes at an event in Russia. Johnson has yet to fight again.

The two lead the charge for the WSoF’s new TV deal with NBC Sports, which calls for six events annually for the next three years.
