Steve Carl owns a fine 20-3 record, and he has gone 2-0 in the WSOF, scoring two fast submission wins employing a rear naked choke. He has a lot of submission wins on his record, and he has an overall 2-2 record with Bellator where two of his losses came – to Dan Hornbuckle and Douglas Lima.
Burkman, known as ‘The People’s Champion’, has a 5-5 run in the UFC on his resume, and his overall level of competition appears a lot stronger than Carl’s. He made fast work of Jon Fitch in his last outing that saw his name sneak onto some of the top 10 lists in the weight class. Look for Burkman to be favored at the books and look for him to walk away with the gold.
Jon Fitch will be facing Marcelo Alfaya in a match that should see Fitch a slight favorite. Fitch is in dire need of a win, as he has dropped 2 fights in a row, including his WSOF debut. Alfaya is a 34 year old (Fitch is 35) with a 15-6 overall record, with the highest point being a 1-1 stint in Bellator. He was flattened by Jake Ellenberger in what is probably his most memorable moment as a fighter. Alfaya has fought at Middleweight, but Fitch is long and lanky and he is the better fighter, he just has to come in and get the job done.
Also on the card is 40-6 bantamweight Miguel Torres, who was basically released by the UFC for being a bonehead but was once considered the top of the weight class. Alfonso is 8-5, and is riding a 2 fight winning streak. Torres will be favored, but this might be a chance for a look at the underdog, as Torres has come up flat in performances with some pressure on him, and this being his debut with the company, Torres needs to impress to be of any relevance.
