World Series of Fighting continues to fill out the card for its next show, WSOF 3 next month in Las Vegas.

Chris Gruetzemacher (11-1) will meet Jerrod Sanders (11-1) in a featherweight bout, while Carson Beebe (13-2) takes on Joe Murphy (6-0) at bantamweight. WSOF officials on Wednesday announced the new fight pairings. All four fighters will be making their WSOF debuts.

WSOF 3 takes place June 14 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The main card airs on NBC Sports Network. The main event is a welterweight bout between former UFC title challenger Jon Fitch and fellow UFC vet Josh Burkman.

Gruetzemacher is riding a 10-fight win streak, including eight finishes. The Arizona-based fighter hasn't lost in more than four years. Included among his 10-fight win streak is a Strikeforce Challengers TKO win over Ryan Diaz in August 2010. In 2012, he picked up wins over WEC vet Frank Gomez and UFC and Bellator vet Roli Delgado, both by TKO.

Sanders is on a lengthy win streak of his own with nine consecutive victories, six by stoppage. The Oklahoma City-based 145-pounder went 4-0 in 2012 with three stoppages, but he didn't fight after July of this past year. The lone loss of Sanders' career came to Jeremy Spoon at Bellator 37.

Beebe, brother of former WEC bantamweight champion Chase Beebe, will be looking to get back in the win column after having a seven-fight win streak snapped this past November at Tachi Palace Fights 15. Before that, along with wins for regional promotions, Beebe's resume included a win for Legacy Fighting Championship. Beebe made the cut on Season 14 of "The Ultimate Fighter," but was submitted by eventual semifinalist Johnny Bedford in his preliminary fight to get into the house.

Murphy has had a perfect start to his career. The California-based fighter has five submissions in his 6-0 start. When he makes his WSOF debut next month, it will be his first fight in 14 months.

That was crazy! Maia couldn't do that in 3 rounds and Burkman literally ran through him!!!

Why has Fitch tried to stand recently? Every time he's done it he's been dropped. It's sad watching this, Jon needs to hang it up.

Glad Burkman didn't go until the ref stopped him.

To Josh Burkman??

Now either Josh Burkman has drastically improved or Jon Fitch is getting Drastically worse. By looking at their record id say both of those statements run true. I mean the guy managed to beat Gerald Harris not too long ago but lost 4 out of 5 in the UFC starting with his loss to Karo.

Mike Swick beat Josh Burkman
Josh Burkman beat Jon Fitch
Does this mean Mike Swick is better then Fitch now.?? MMA Math ftw.

Dana White is probably laughing right now.
