It wasn’t quite the grappling exchange expected from these two, but Gilbert Burns still scored a nice TKO win.
Against veteran Brazilian jiu-jitsu blackbelt Demian Maia, ‘Durinho’ managed to connect with a hard left hand in the first round and only needed to follow it up with some ground and pound in order to pick up another TKO win in the Octagon. On Twitter, some fighters believed the UFC Brasilia co-main event was stopped a tad too soon.
