Orem, UT (USA) – Go Fight Live (www.GFL.tv) will stream, Internet Pay-Per-View 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 MT/ 8:30pm PT. Josh “The People’s Warrior” Burkman (21-9) takes on Utah’s rising star, Koffi “The Lion King” 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. “This kid is not ready for my level of fighting; he has never faced an athlete like me!” Burkman stated.
Koffi Adzitso moved to the United States from Togo in Africa as an early teen. One of nine kids, and the only one in his family involved in athletics, he looks to make his family’s name famous through Mixed Martial Arts. Koffi posted recent wins over UFC Veteran, Kevin Burns and shares a win with Burkman over Brandon “The Murderer” Melendez. “I don’t care who he is, or where he has fought before, if he stands in my way I will beat him, BADLY!”, Adzitso lamented.
