Anthony Johnson out, Andrei Arlovski in vs. Mike Kyle at WSOF 5


WSoF 5 headliner Anthony Johnson has pulled out of his Sept. 14 fight against Mike Kyle due to an injury suffered in training. As a result, Andrei Arlovski has agreed to replace "Rumble" against Kyle in Atlantic City, N.J. The fight will now be contested at heavyweight.

Interestingly enough, it was Johnson who last defeated Arlovski via unanimous decision in March at WSOF 2. The loss snapped Arlovski's five-fight unbeaten streak, and he hasn't fought since then.

WSOF 5 will take place at the Revel Resort & Casino. The event, which will air on NBC Sports Network, will also feature the semi-finals of the promotion's first middleweight tournament.

This really sucks that was the best fight for him outside the ufc and i think this is rumbles last fight and he would of most likely been in the UFC again by early next year.

Interesting fight....Kyle hits hard and we all know about Andrei's questionable chin, hopfully he can pull this one off without taking to much damage, would hate to see him get his lights turned off again especially to a guy like Mike Kyle.
