Weekend in Violence 3 Stars - 'The James Krause' had a big weekend

Dana White’s reaction to the Fitch/Burkman fight was pretty interesting.

No bashing, no snide remarks, just a simple observation full of respect to Josh Burkman and cutting down Mazzagatti. Ok, so it wasn’t a completely vitriol-free tweet, Mazzagatti took one on the chin, but what matters here is the fact that Dana was giving respect to the fighters, that’s something I’m happy about. And let’s be honest here, Mazzagatti was just standing there...

Jon Fitch Gets Choked Unconscious in 41 Seconds by Josh Burkman (Video)

Jon Fitch’s post-UFC career got off to a quiet start on Friday night at WSOF 3, as in he was soundly put to sleep by Josh Burkman (pictured) with a guillotine choke.

Josh Burkman just choked Jon Fitch unconscious at WSOF 3!

Josh Burkman just turned the MMA Math world upside down. By defeating Jon Fitch, one has to think that he’s now a top ten welterweight, and couldn’t be finished by GSP, and has better submission skills than Demian Maia. I have no idea which way is up anymore. Everything is upside down. Nothing makes sense. Josh Burkman just destroyed Jon Fitch and he did it with ease. Even though...
