Las Vegas-based World Series of Fighting on Friday revealed a nearly-full undercard roster for WSOF 35, which goes down on March 18 at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, N.Y.

Alexandre Almeida will collide with Steve Siler in a featherweight encounter, a bout that will anchor the prelims. Welterweights Andrews Nakahara and Seal Lally will lock horns in the lead-up bout while WSOF has revealed a quartet of lightweight battles: Tom Marcellino vs. Maurilio Alava; Islam Mamedov vs. Natan Schulte; Bruce Boyington vs. Rodrigo Almeida and Robert Spinelli vs. Fabian Miranda.

WSOF announced that middleweight Phil Hawes and 145-pounder Arman Ospanov will compete as well, though their opponents have yet to be named.

WSOF 35 will be headlined by a heavyweight championship bout between titlist Blagoy Ivanon and Shawn Jordan. The co-feature will see Lance Palmer put his featherweight crown on the line against Andre Harrison. Rounding out the main card is Timur Valiev fighting Bekbulat Magomedov for the vacant bantamweight title and a welterweight scrum between Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Matt Secor.

The WSOF 35 main card will be televised live on NBCSN beginning at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT. The entire preliminary card will be streamed live on WSOF.com.
