    I like both fighters and this was the fight I wanted to see once I heard Shields was out.

    Not super short notice but still kind of short. I didn't think Burkman would take the fight. Glad he did.

    So Jon Fitch originally got the title shot coming off a split decision after two straight losses? WSOF needs to do better lol.

    Still a fun fight, Burkman choking him out was one of my favorite moments in MMA last year. Hell of a replacement fight no doubt.

    So if I am correct this the card we got so far?

    Gaethje vs. Newell
    Fitch vs. Burkman 3
    Guillard vs. Cavalcante
    Hamill vs. ???

    Still pretty solid, that headliner is the best they've done. Not sure if it's enough for NBC but worth a shot.

    I liked the Shields fight but this is an equally good replacement.

    For some reason I really wanted to see Fitch/Shields but this is an okay fight. Burkman should take it, he seems to have more in the tank at this point.

    No, I just want him the hell out of that shitty place much like he does. I would welcome him in bellator though and they aren't my fav. I like all mma I support them though, free fights in prime time. with some of the best fighters in the world

    I'm fine with the replacement. This is the best of a bad situation. It may be an improvement actually over Shields in terms of action, but who could say. K-1 shields could have shown up.
