WSOF 3 'Countdown' preview videos for Jon Fitch vs. Josh Burkman main event on June 14 in Las Vegas

What, you thought UFC was the only one capable of putting out "Countdown" videos prior to a televised event?

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight number one contender Jon Fitch isn't just hungry, he's angry, too.

That's one of the messages from his World Series of Fighting (WSOF) "Countdown" video from NBC Sports, which gives mixed martial arts (MMA) fans an inside look at the former collegiate wrestling standout as he prepares to rematch Josh Burkman at the promotion's third event from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on June 14, 2013.

That's just two days away.

The 35-year-old Fitch (24-5) was exiled from UFC after a 2-2-1 run over the past two years while Burkman (25-9) has flourished on the regional circuit, racking up a 7-1 record since leaving Las Vegas. That's counting his first two fights for Ray Sefo and Co., including a finish over Aaron Simpson at the WSOF 2 event earlier this year in Atlantic City, NJ.

His "Countdown" preview is located in the video player below.

Their 170-pound headliner will serve as a rematch from their UFC: "Fight Night 4" contest, which Fitch won by way of submission (rear naked choke) in the waning seconds of the second stanza. No title is on the line just yet, as the upstart promotion is still trying to find its sea legs.

MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire WSOF 3 fight card on fight night (June 14, 2013), starting with the online "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. ET, right on through the NBC Sports-televised main card action, which is slated to begin at 11 p.m. ET.
