Andrei Arlovski (L) faces off against Anthony Johnson. - WSOF

Does size really matter? We're about to find out this weekend as former welterweight Anthony Johnson packs on the pounds to slug it out against Andrei Arlovski in "Dirty Jersey."

World Series of Fighting (WSOF) is back with its sophomore effort this weekend (March 23, 2013) in Atlantic City, New Jersey, headlined by a 265-pound showdown that pits ex-Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski against former 170-pound contender Anthony Johnson.

"Rumble" has now competed in weight classes separated by nearly 100 pounds.

"The Pitbull" had a chance to come nose-to-nose with the Blackzilian at one of yesterday's press junkets. In addition, main card fighters Tyson Nam vs. Marlon Moraes also squared off in what could be an early favorite for "Fight of the Night."

Check it out.
