WSOF’s inaugural 205 champ will soon be crowned…
Earlier today during a media conference call, World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo said that Anthony Johnson would get a shot at the promotion's inaugural light heavyweight title with a win over Mike Kyle at WSOF 8 on January 18. Below are some highlights from the conference call.
Sefo on Johnson getting a title shot with a win: "If Anthony comes out on top in this fight, he'll definitely be fighting for a title in his next fight."
Sefo on why Kyle wouldn't get a title shot if he were to win: "I can't really push Mike at the moment in terms of a title shot because in his first outing with us he lost. Obviously if he wins this one, then you never know, so we just have to wait and see what the outcome of the fight is."
