Things Get Real-Nasty On Twitter Between WSOF, Burkman & Magalhaes

April 4, 2014 9:37 am

Yesterday we learned that WSOF welterweight fighter, Josh Burkman, was unhappy with his employer, and as a result, is requesting a release from his fighting contract.

That was only the beginning.

•WSOF foreshadowing… Contracts should be honored at all times. Not just when fighters are winning! #JusticePrevails 

•I can’t work on going anywhere else unless #WSOF releases me. If so, we will start fresh somewhere else…

@MMAWorldSeries gave Josh Burkman 5 fights in 16 months, made more $ than any other fighter we have, bent over backwards for him.

Magalhaes then came to Burkman’s defense, slighting Abdel-Aziz in the process

@VinnyMMA couldn’t have said it better myself.

•I don’t know why all this bashing all of a sudden about me and WSOF? It’s all good though.
[email protected] wanted 3x more than what ufc was paying you. I believe you’re making 3/3 now. #truth

Magalhaes then tweeted from the page of his contract showing his UFC, which was 22/22.

Magalhaes then angrily texted Abdel-Aziz, a screen shot of which was posted but the matchmaker.

@VinnyMMA Just called you but you didn’t pick up. Who’s the pussy now???@VinnyMMA you just text me first and I called you back as a man. Lol. Stop talking about me, it’s not a good look

Then the boss, WSoF president Ray Sefo stepped in firmly.
