Josh Burkman asks for release from WSOF contract

Thursday, April 03, 2014

Josh Burkman has been with the World Series of Fighting since it's inception and was one of it's biggest stars with a 4-1 record in their first five events.

However, now Burkman is hoping to jump ship, citing a lack of respect from the promotion for him:

I can't work on going anywhere else unless #WSOF releases me. If so, we will start fresh somewhere else…

@bigfish042 I feel they did me wrong contractually. I asked to be released.
