The two men who are set to headline the upstart mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's latest show, Jon Fitch and Josh Burkman, both hit their respective Welterweight marks without incident. Burkman is out for revenge against the former No. 1-ranked 170-pound Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) title challenger, tapping to a rear-naked choke submission at UFC Fight Night 4 way back in April 2006.
He looked ready.
In addition to Jon Fitch vs. Josh Burkman in the WSOF 3 main event, the Friday night fight card will feature former Strikeforce prospect Lyle Beerbohm against another UFC veteran, Jacob Volkmann, in a Lightweight showdown (see pic below). Rounding out the televised main card is a 170-pound scrap between Steve Carl vs. Tyson Steele and a 155-pound tilt between Brian Cobb vs. Justin Gaethje.
