As MMASucka.com first reported last week, World Series of Fighting has acquired Canadian promotion Aggression Fighting Championship. The organization will hold their first show north of the border, WSOF 7 on Saturday December 7, 2013 at the Agrodome in Vancouver, BC.
It’s been over two years since the city of Vancouver has seen big league MMA. UFC 131 went down in June 2011 and the town has been chomping at the bit ever since.
The main event will be a light heavyweight showdown between Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and Mike Kyle.
Johnson (15-4) has appeared on two WSOF fight cards and was victorious in both. At WSOF 1 he knocked out D.J. Linderman and he won his heavyweight debut against Andrei Arlovski at WSOF 2.
Kyle (20-10-1 2NC) made his promotional debut in September at WSOF 5 where he lost a unanimous decision to Andrei Arlovski. After a long tenure with Strikeforce, Kyle then went on to fight for CFA where he defeated Travis Wiuff by knockout.
A middleweight battle between Elvis Mutapcic and Jesse Taylor will go down in the evening’s co-main event.
Mutapcic and Taylor were expected to face each other at WSOF 5, however an issue arose in the locker room prior to the bout and forced Mutapcic to withdraw from the bout. The winner of the fight will move on to face David Branch in the middleweight tournament finals.
WSOF 7 will air live on NBC Sports.
MMASucka.com will have more on the fight card and ticket information as it arises.
