48 hours until the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) declares their first welterweight champion and Steve Carl isn’t feeling any extra pressure. He closes WSOF 6 against Josh Burkman.
“I love that I am fighting a guy that many have in the top ten welterweights in the world,” said Carl to Chris Leslie from MMAFrenzy. “That’s where I want to be and that is what I want to do. I just want to beat one of the best in the world regardless of whether I get a shiny strap after the fight.”
Carl is 20-3 and rides six wins, which have all ended in submission. Two of those came from the WSOF in Ramico Blackmon and Tyson Steele.
Burckman has won three in a row for the WSOF with the biggest one being from Jon Fitch. He choked Fitch out in 41 seconds.
They headline WSOF 6 this Saturday, October 26. It’s from the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL. The main card can be seen live on the NBC Sports Network.
