Jacob Volkmann has joined World Series of Fighting less than a week after the UFC released the 32-year-old lightweight.
The lightweight has signed a multi-fight contract with World Series of Fighting, Al Abdel Aziz, the promotion's executive vice president and matchmaker, confirmed with MMAFighting.com Tuesday night.
The 32-year-old is expected to debut for WSOF in June at the promotion's third event.
Immediately after his release, Volkmann contacted Bellator to see if they were interested in his services, but they were booked through the summer. Other notable ex-UFC fighters who have signed with WSOF include Josh Burkman, Gerald Harris, Ronys Torres, and Anthony Johnson.
