Jon Fitch-Josh Burkman Slated As Main Event Of World Series Of Fighting 3

The next World Series of Fighting card doesn’t have a location, but it has a date and a main event.

WSOF 3 will go down June 14, with welterweights Jon Fitch and Josh Burkman competing in the headliner fight, MMAFighting.com confirmed on Wednesday.

The bout will mark Fitch’s debut with the promotion, as he was released by the UFC earlier this year. He is a former No. 1 contender in the UFC, going 14-3-1 during his time in the promotion.

Burkman, also a former UFC fighter, defeated Aaron Simpson at the most recent WSOF show. He has won seven of his last eight fights.

This match was pretty much confirmed when Fitch entered the cage after Burkman’s win vs. Simpson. Can Burkman finish a second straight strong wrestler? We will find out in June.
