UFC Re-Signs Josh Burkman
UFC president Dana White has announced that the organization has re-signed The Ultimate Fighter season two cast member, Josh Burkman. In his first UFC stint, Burkman went 5-5 in the Octagon before being cut. Burkman would go on to fight 11 times in other organizations, and picking up notable wins over Gerald Harris, Aaron Simpson and getting ‘submission of the year’ honors for his impressive win over Jon Fitch, at World Series of Fighting 3.
The UFC’s welterweight division has never been more exciting as it is currently. The addition of Burkman will certainly allow the UFC to match him up in some potentially exciting fights that will surely please the fans.
