WSOF 3 takes place June 14 at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and will see Jon Fitch collide with fellow UFC veteran Josh Burkman in the evening’s main event. The show’s four-bout main card airs live on NBC Sports Network and will also showcase submission specialist Rolles Gracie, who squares off with onetime Bellator talent Dave Huckaba. Additionally, unbeaten prospect Justin Gaethje will do battle with lightweight veteran Brian Cobb.
The evening’s preliminary card will feature a lightweight duel between UFC veterans John Gunderson and Dan Lauzon, as well as a middleweight showdown featuring undefeated up-and-comers Krasimir Mladenov and Kendrick Miree.
