After ten trips to the Octagon, Josh Burkman and the UFC split ways

Multiple sources have confirmed to FiveOuncesOfPain.com that Josh Burkman was released by the UFC several weeks ago.

Burkman’s contract was not renewed by the UFC in November and now recent reports are stating that the relationship has been temporarily severed.

The Team Quest fighter put together a record of 5-5 during his time in the octagon, notching wins over Josh Neer, Drew Fickett and Forrest Petz in the process.

His most recent three consecutive losses to the likes of Mike Swick, Dustin Hazelett and Pete Sell were definitely the straw that broke the camel’s back as far as Burkman’s time with the UFC goes.

A well rounded fighter with strong wrestling and impressive striking, Burkman should have no problem finding work with an organization such as Strikeforce in the near future.

    Wasnt he injured? and was taking time off for surgery? I believe thats what his website says

    i’m not really sure. he would make a nice addition to the Strikeforce roster er maybe they should bring him down to the Wec. Those would be some smart moves for him.

    Burkman can always think back to doing to horizontal mambo with Arianny Celeste if he gets too depressed about the situation…

    Is Dana White trying to amass an organization of undefeated fighters? As soon as someone loses he gets rid of them only to bring in another undefeated fighter? Maybe it’s just me but I would like to see a more stable roster. I would love to pick favorites but you never know from one day to the next whether or not “your guy” is still going to be in the UFC.

    the People’s Warrior has had plenty of chances and it’s time for him to move on.if he stayed in the UFC he would probably be stuck hovering just outside the top 10.it’s too bad the WEC folded their WWt division, he would have be a great oppoenent for WEC Wwt Champ Carlos Condit.but with that no longer being an opption I guess that he will go to Strikeforce or Affliction.
