| According to WSOF fighter Anthony “Rumble” Johnson he is going to square off next against Mike Kyle at WSOF 5. Johnson competed on the organization’s first two fight cards and is saying that he will make his promotional return on September 14th, 2013 for the organizations fifth event.

WSOF officials have not confirmed the light heavyweight match up or any other fights for the card but Johnson apparently spoke about the bout in a recent interview with MMA Interviews.

Johnson (15-4) is coming off of his decision victory over heavyweight Andrei Arlovski at WSOF 3. He’ll drop back down to light heavyweight for the fight with Kyle and will be looking to push his record to 6-0 (3 TKOs) since leaving the UFC, IF he can beat Kyle.

Kyle (20-9-1, 2 NC) will be making his WSOF debut following a 21-second knockout over Travis Wiuff last month in CFA 11. The longtime MMA veteran will have his hands full, as Johnson is currently on a five-fight winning streak and has been looking good since leaving his longtime weight class of 170 pounds. More news on this event and fight will likely start breaking in the coming days.
