Ethan Miller

World Series of Fighting appears to be facing some serious managerial drama stemming from a tweet put out by Josh Burkman.

It appears that welterweight competitor Josh Burkman's request for release has caused some serious managerial drama for World Series of Fighting.

Following the welterweight competitor's sudden change of heart in regards to competing in the organization, WSOF Vice President and matchmaker Ali Abdel-Aziz took to twitter, where he proceeded to berate both Burkman as well as former UFC light-heavyweight competitor Vinny Magalhaes, who came to Burkman's defense.

This was then followed by WSOF President Ray Sefo, who stepped in to mend ties with Burkman by tweeting that "one individual's action doesn't speak for WSOF."

Watch the story unfold in tweets below:
