Jon Fitch will be making his entrance into the World Series of Fighting in a few months.

Fitch (24-5-1) will meet Josh Burkman (25-9) on June 14 to headline WSOF 3 in Las Vegas, Nev. for the second time. The event will be televised live on NBC Sports Network, but no venue has been announced yet. WSOF President Ray Sefo revealed the non-title welterweight fight on on Wednesday.

Fitch beat Burkman in their first brawl at UFC – Fight Night 4 in 2006 via rear-naked choke at 4 minutes, 52 seconds in the second round.

Fitch was released by the UFC last month following his unanimous decision loss to Demian Maia. He signed with WSOF this month.

Burkman, who is on a 4-fight-win streak, was released by the UFC in 2008. He last defeated Aaron Simpson at WSOF 2 – Arlovski vs. Johnson via technical knockout at 3:04 in the first round this past Saturday.
