Big step down for Burkman from his last two fights but at least it's for a title now. It's pretty clear he's the best at Welterweight WSOF has. His career resurgence since he signed with WSOF has been nothing short of incredible. With that being said though he's had submission defence problems in the past and if Carl can get his back he's in a lot of trouble.

He's 2-0 in the WSOF with two early finishes and Burkman has ran through anyone else worthy of a shot.

Carl has 6 submission finishes in a row and its not like there is anyone else to face...unless we want to see Anthony Johnson fail to make wt again.

I dont really like this fight, but its the only fight they could make for a title without signing a decent size name. I think and hope Burkman takes this. He's been on a fuckin roll and deserves to be WSOF 1st WW Champ.
