As expected, World Series of Fighting will return June 14 to host their third event. “World Series of Fighting: Fitch vs. Burkman” takes place inside The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A welterweight rematch between former UFC top contender Jon Fitch (pictured) and Josh Burkman headlines the gig. Fitch previously submitted Berkman at UFC Ultimate Fight Night 4 back in April 2006.
