Josh Burkman suffers elbow injury. Out of WSOF 11 fight against Jon Fitch.

Josh Burkman (27-10) and Jon Fitch (25-6-1) will have to put off their rubber match for now as Burkman suffered an elbow injury during training on Wednesday.

Jon Fitch’s first opponent, Rousimar Palhares (16-6), withdrew from the WSOF 11 event to take care of his sick mother.  Then it was Jake Shields (29-7-1) to take on Fitch; however, an injury during training forced him to pullout.  Now Josh Burkman is off the card due to his injury.  Fitch is expected to remain on the card that is less than a month away, so fans will have to wait and see who WSOF picks as Fitch’s new opponent.
