Andrei Arlovski vs Anthony Johnson staredown pic from WSOF 2 weigh ins in Atlantic City

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Andrei Arlovski, and welterweight knockout artist, Anthony Johnson, came nose-to-nose at the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 2 weigh in event this afternoon (March 22, 2013), which took place at Revel in Atlantic City, N.J., separated by only 15 pounds prior to their main event on NBC Sports tomorrow night. See their staredown pic right here.

Despite a brutal 45-minute delay, World Series of Fighting (WSOF) held its weigh-in event this afternoon (March 22, 2013) at Revel in Atlantic City, N.J., which is the same venue that will host tomorrow's WSOF 2: "Arlovski vs. Johnson" mixed martial arts (MMA) event.

"Arlovski vs. Johnson" will feature former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski taking on ex-Welterweight contender Anthony Johnson. And even though "Pitbull" holds about a three-inch height advantage over "Rumble," the pair are now just 15 pounds apart.

Unreal, considering Johnson competed 60 pounds lighter not too long ago.

In addition, rising star Tyson Nam and his co-main event opponent, Marlon Moraes, were on the scene, as well as another notable UFC castoff, David Branch, who will collide with former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Middleweight champion Paulo Filho in a 185-pound main card bout that will air on NBC Sports.
