Although Josh Burkman has been unofficially out of UFC since November when his contract expired it's now official. UFC officially released Burkman several weeks ago, it was revealed today. He was 5-5 in UFC but has lost 3 straight and 4 of his last 5.

I still feel like Burkman had potential. Just couldn't put it together. Oh well, maybe he can go out and earn some wins at smaller shows, put some wins together and evolve his game. Then maybe he can come back and make an impact.

I could have swore that burkman was cut along time ago, like more than a couple weeks ago.

Or maybe it was he hasnt fought in awhile, or I didnt watch his last fight. Wasnt a split decision lost to sell?

Yeah I thought he was gone too. I guess they thought they would hold off as he always gives his all and entertains similar to Houston, MacDonald, McFedries.
