Live from the UCCU Center on the campus of Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah Showdown Fights presents “Breakout” February 24, 2012 at 6:30pm. Josh Burkman (21-9) takes on Utah’s rising star, Koffi Adzitso (17-8). The crafty UFC veteran Burkman has refocused on his career since his marriage late in 2011, and looks to return to his winning ways against Adzitso. As one of the most athletic fighters to set foot into the Showdown Fights cage Burkman will surely be tested by the young upstart Koffi whom he used to coach in High School Football.
Koffi Adzitso moved to the United States from Togo in Africa as a young boy. One of nine kids, and the only one in his family involved in athletics, he looks to make his families name famous through Mixed Martial Arts. Koffi posted recent wins over UFC Veteran, Kevin Burns and shares a win with Burkman over Brandon Melendez.
Also featured on this stacked card Salt Lake City’s own Sean O’Connell (10-4) returns to action against the always-tough Trevor Carlson (6-1) from Elko, NV. Jordan Clements (9-1) takes on Jeremy Horn protÃ©gÃ© Dave Castillo (13-4) in a lightweight battle that could easily be a main event. Former BYU Football star Jan Jorgensen (1-0) looks to stay unbeaten in the Showdown Fights cage when he takes on Aaron Magro (2-0) in his toughest test to date. Steven Sharp (27-14) looks to cut through the ever-strong Mario Espinoza (15-7) in what will be an all out war. In a battle of unbeaten fighters Ohio’s own Tim Ruberg (9-0) face off with Utah’s undefeated rising star Jason South (8-0) in a bout that may catapult the winner to the next level.
