After the former Ultimate Fighter season 2 cast member ran through the former UFC welterweight title challenger Jon Fitch in less than one minute, there’s no opponent in line for Burman at the moment.
“We’ve talked about it being Steve Carl, we also talked about it being a tournament. I haven’t got a contract yet, I’m thinking it’s gonna be Steve Carl in October for the belt.”
Carl (20-3, 15 SUB) has finished his last six bouts in the first round via submission, with the last two of those being under the WSOF banner, it is likely that he will be considered when selecting Burkaman’s next opponent.
Burkman (26-9) is riding high on a five-fight win streak, and coming off the biggest win of his career, when he smoked the UFC washout Fitch in a matter of seconds with hard punches and a lethal guillotine choke.
