Andrei Arlovski in for injured Anthony Johnson vs. Mike Kyle at WSOF 5

A training injury has forced Anthony Johnson (15-4) to withdraw from World Series of Fighting 5.

Johnson's scheduled opponent, Mike Kyle (20-9-1), will now meet ex-UFC champ Andrei Arlovski (30-10) at heavyweight in the headliner of the Sept. 14 event. WSOF 5 takes place at Revel Atlantic City in Atlantic City, N.J. Its main card airs live on NBC Sports Network. ( confirmed the switch with the promotion following a report from

Arlovski most recently appeared at WSOF 2 in March, where he lost a unanimous decision to Johnson in the event's headliner. He won his WSOF debut with a first-round TKO of Devin Cole.

Kyle makes his promotional debut following a 21-second knockout of Travis Wiuff at CFA 11, which put him on good footing after a first-round submission loss to Gegard Mousasi in the now-defunct Strikeforce.

WSOF 5 also features the opening round of a four-man middleweight tournament, featuring Dave Branch (12-3) vs. Danillo Villefort (14-4) and Elvis Mutapcic (13-2) vs. Jesse Taylor (26-9).

WIth the change, the WSOF 5 card now includes:
  • Andrei Arlovski vs. Mike Kyle
  • Dave Branch vs. Danillo Villefort - middleweight tournament semifinals
  • Elvis Mutapcic vs. Jesse Taylor - middleweight tournament semifinals

Still solid imo. AA vs Kyle should finish brutally.

I like MMA less because of this forum
