WSOF 3 results: Josh Burkman submits Jon Fitch in under one minute

USA TODAY Sports

Jon Fitch's first fight outside the UFC since 2005 resulted in a submission loss to Josh Burkman in just under one minute at tonight's (June 14, 2013) WSOF 3: "Fitch vs. Burkman" event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White must be as happy as a pig in shit right now.

That's because his one of his former employees whom he had a great number of problems with, Jon Fitch, had his first post-Octagon bout in nearly eight years tonight (Fri., June 14, 2013) in the main event of WSOF 3: "Fitch vs. Burkman" against Josh Burkman at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And he was submitted in 41 seconds.

Indeed, Fitch came out aggressive early, pushing Burkman against the fence. He waded in and Burkman landed a couple big shots that had him on wobbly legs. Sensing an opening, Burkman grabbed a hold of his neck, dropped down to the mat with what appeared to be a DDT of all things, and choked until Fitch fell asleep.

It didn't take long to get there.

The referee didn't even stop the bout, actually. Burkman felt Fitch go limp and simply stood up. Once Fitch's limp body went flailing, it was made official and we're now all eagerly awaiting the Dana White smiley face tweet.

Stay tuned.
