His opponent, Johnny Nunez is 5-0 in his pro career, and 1-0 under the WSOF banner. He will be looking to pick up a win over a very experienced opponent in Cobb, and make waves in the lightweight division.

Kasimir Mladenov is also undefeated in his pro career, going 11-0, and securing 2 wins under the WSOF banner already.

His opponent, former UFC fighter and TUF competitor, Jesse Taylor went 1-1 under the WSOF banner before being released from the promotion, and competing in the BattleGrounds O.N.E. tournament, which he lost in the first round.
