Later in the evening, Jon Fitch makes his first appearance inside a cage since the UFC suddenly released him earlier in the year. He does so for the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) and against someone familiar in Josh Burkman.
When Fitch cut to welterweight in 2006, Burkman was his first victim as he suffered a second round submission loss. Fitch lost his last fight to Demian Maia at February’s UFC 156.
Fitch vs. Burkman headlines tonight’s WSOF 3. It comes from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The main card airs on the NBC Sports Network and FightLine will have the results.
Here’s a video of Fitch’s thoughts about his WSOF debut.
