The World Series of Fighting has signed former UFC fighter Mike Ciesnolevicz (19-4) to their roster.
"I would like to thank Jason Chambers and Apex Sports Agency for guiding me to this deal with World Series of Fighting and into the second half of my career," said Ciesnolevicz on MMA Junkie. "I have 25 professional fights, and I'm looking forward to the next 25 with ASA."
Ciesnolevicz will be getting his first taste of action since 2011. He was 1-1 when he competed for the UFC in 2009. He was released following his first loss and failure to make weight. He's fought just twice since.
"The World Series of Fighting is a great place for him to show that he has been overlooked for too long and that he is a threat to be taken very seriously," said Jason Chambers, CEO of Apex Sports Agency.
It is unknown if he will debut on the company's first show on November 3.
"As for my fans, they can expect to see a very well-rounded display of mixed martial arts the next time I compete," said Ciesnolevicz. "I have a few secret weapons that I have been dying to unleash."
