Check out WSOF! I am.

Volkmann has quickly landed back on his feet following his release from the UFC last week.

The lightweight has signed a multi-fight contract with World Series of Fighting, Al Abdel Aziz, the promotion's executive vice president and matchmaker, confirmed with MMAFighting.com Tuesday night.

The 32-year-old is expected to debut for WSOF in June at the promotion's third event.

Good move.   He might not be the most exciting fighter but he has a legitimate record nonethless. He will be a challenge for most fighters and i think he would be a great addition to the WSOF.  I will be following their events.

He declined a contract offer last time he fought there, so it wouldn't surprise me if there was never a contract offered.

Probably got turned down by Bellator for saying they're crap.

Good for him. He's a bit odd but also a very good lightweight fighter. Glad to see him march on post-UFC. Thanks Obama!
