More than 4,400 fans gathered at Utah Valley University’s UCCU Center on Friday night for the Showdown MMA fights. The headline fight featured former UFC fighter Josh "the People’s Warrior" Burkman (21-9) against Utah’s rising star, Koffi “The Lion King” Adzitso (17-8). Burkman is hoping to work his way back to the UFC after getting married last year, while Adzitso is making a name for himself with some big wins over veteran fighters. There were a number of local fighters on Friday’s card, including Sean "The Real OC" O’Connell and former BYU football star Jan “The Saint” Jorgensen. The next Showdown Fights are scheduled for May 4, 2012, at the UCCU center.
