FIGHT! Magazine was in the house with an all-access pass to World Series of Fighting 2 in Atlantic City, NJ, on March 23. The MMA promotion’s sophomore show featured a fight card of veterans and talented up-and-comers that kept the crowd at the Revel Casio on their feet for much of the night.
WSOF 2 netted an average 210,000 viewers during its broadcast on NBC Sports Network, peaking at 332,000 during the evening’s heavyweight main event that saw Anthony Johnson defeat Andrei Arlovski via unanimous decision. In other action, Marlon Moraes notched an impressive first-round knockout of bantamweight Tyson Nam in the evening’s co-main event, and welterweight Josh Burkman picked up a violent knockout over fellow UFC veteran Aaron Simpson.
