Burkman UFC UFN fight in doubt

Josh Josh "The Peoples Warrior" Burkman may have to pull out of his Ultimate Fight Night bout on October 10 against Tony Desouza at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

The UFC welterweight re-broke his nose in training while sparring. Burkman initially broke his nose against Josh Neer in a hard fought unanimous decision victory at UFC 61: "Bitter Rivals" back in July.

Apparently, he didn't give it enough time to heal before getting back in the ring.

We'll keep you posted on whether or not Burkman will be ready for the bout or gets medical clearance.

Ortiz vs. Shamrock 3: "The Final Chapter" will air live on SpikeTV.

The undercard has not been officially announced, but we hear it will be a Team Punishment evening, including:

--Matt Hamill vs Seth Petruzelli
--Kuniyoshi Hironaka vs TBA (BJ Penn originally scheduled)
--Kendall Grove vs Chris Price
--Thiago Alves vs John Alessio
--Rory Singer vs TBA
--Nathan Marquart v. Thales Leites

We'll confirm/amend this lineup as soon as we here more information.
