World Series of Fighting has added some depth to its heavyweight talent pool, signing Jared Rosholt and Ashley Gooch to exclusive multi-fight deals.
The promotion announced the signings on Wednesday. Debut dates for both fighters will be announced soon. Blagoy Ivanov is currently the WSOF heavyweight champion.
Rosholt was released from the UFC earlier this year despite compiling a 6-2 mark within the Las Vegas-based organization. However, his last Octagon appearance resulted in a lackluster unanimous decision loss to Roy Nelson at UFC Fight Night “Hendricks vs. Thompson” on Feb. 6. The former NCAA All-American wrestler earned five of his six UFC triumphs by way of decision.
The 41-year-old Gooch has competed organizations such as CES MMA, RFA and King of the Cage over the course of his 14-fight professional tenure. He enters WSOF on an eight-bout winning streak, with all of those triumphs coming inside the distance.
