Volkmann vs Escudero UFC 141

Jacok Volkmann

The World Series of Fighting continues to fill out the fight card for its third event, which is slated for June 14 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The latest addition is a bout between Jacob Volkmann and Lyle Beerbohm.

Volkmann initially tweeted the bout, which MMAWeekly.com also confirmed with WSOF matchmaker Ali Abdel-Aziz.

Each fighter is making his promotional debut.

For Volkmann (15-4), WSOF is the first promotion that he will have fought for outside of the UFC since 2009. He went 6-4 in the Octagon, but exited the promotion following a loss to Bobby Green at UFC 156 earlier this year.

Beerbohm (21-2) fought several times for Strikeforce, but was show the door following back-to-back losses to Pat Healy and Shinya Aoki, two of the top lightweight fighters in the world. He has since gone on a streak of six consecutive victories.

Jon Fitch vs. Josh Burkman headlines WSOF 3 on June 14 at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The event will air live in the United States on NBC Sports Network.

    I hope the prelim card is going to be streamed. That looks like a good bunch of fights. Bellator and UFC always make sure that fans get to see all the fights. WSOF should do the same and stream those fights. Good way to gain fan appreciation and therefore fan growth.
