Josh Burkman Profile

The Canadian Press has a long piece on "The People's Warrior", Josh Burkman. Burkman will be in the cage this Saturday when he takes on Strong Style Fight Team welterweight Forrest Petz (I interviewed Petz in an upcoming edition of Whoopass Radio).

This article is one of the better looks into the evolution of a MMA fighter, from personal to professional struggles. Most importantly, Burkman makes the case that despite MMA's seemingly tainted image in the eyes of some, he credits the sport with helping him get sober, find direction in life, and learn how to be a better person.

He also reveals that UFC Ring Girl Arianny Celeste is no longer his girlfriend. Arianny, if you're reading this email me. I've got a question for you.
