Josh Burkman is able to walk around as one of the top welterweights not under a UFC contract, but he does so with a broken finger. On Monday, Burkman confirmed reports from the NSAC that he indeed break his finger and will be out of action for a little bit.

With such a small welterweight division, and Burkman at the top, the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) will still likely find a way to place “The People’s Warrior” in the title picture. The WSOF currently has no belt for that weight class, but have spoken about introducing several titles before the year is up.
