UFC Quick Quote: Josh Burkman to retire ... maybe

josh burkman

"No more decisions. I'm going to do everything I possibly can to make sure this fight doesn't go to a decision. I'll even retire if it does go to a decision. I can't have them anymore.... After this fight nobody will talk about my wrestling background anymore, because I'm not even going to try to clinch. I'm not even going to try to go to the ground. I'm going to try and knock this dude out. So much for not giving away a gameplan ... there's my gameplan."

-- Josh Burkman jokes (I think) with that he will retire if his upcoming welterweight fight with Dustin Hazelett at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 Finale on June 21 goes to a decision. "The People's Warrior" has had his last five fights go to the judges scorecards and he's dropped two of them (Mike Swick and Karo Parisyan). He narrowly won a split decision over Forrest Petz during that span.
