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.
