[vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”orange” style=”shadow” border_width=”10″][vc_column_text]Many MMA fans know that the UFC Fight Night 170 tournament was held in Brazil on the night of March 14-15.
The peculiarity of this tournament was that there were no spectators in the hall. Such measures have been taken to combat coronavirus.
Nevertheless, the tournament took place, but it turned out to be very boring, although there were a lot of potentially interesting fights in the card. And if we talk about knockouts, then for the entire tournament we saw him only once.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”orange”][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”12174″ img_size=”full”][vc_separator color=”orange”][vc_column_text]In one of the events of the tournament, two top welterweight from Brazil came together.
42-year-old Demian Maya went on a series of 3 victories. And he took 5th place in the ranking of the division.
The last time he went into the octagon was on October 26 last year. And he defeated Ben Askren.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”orange”][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”12175″ img_size=”full” title=”Ben Askren VS Demian Maya”][vc_separator color=”orange”][vc_column_text]The opponent of the UFC veteran was a 33-year-old Brazilian who went on a series of 4 victories and was in 12th place in the rating.
In his past battles, Gilbert defeated quite strong fighters: Olivier Auburn-Mercier, Mike Davis, Alexei Kunchenko and Gunnar Nelson.
By the way, Alexey Kunchenko also fought in this tournament, but he again lost by unanimous decision. Although this decision was not clear to me, because Alexey looked better than Eliseu Zaleski.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”orange”][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”12178″ img_size=”full” title=”Alexey Kunchenko VS Gilbert Burns”][vc_separator color=”orange”][vc_column_text]The duel between the two Brazilians did not portend any quick action, especially knowing the style of Demian Maya.
Gilbert looked more powerful than his opponent and acted very confidently throughout the battle.
Although this battle did not last very long, after 2.5 minutes Burns dealt a crushing blow, which knocked Maya down.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”juicy_pink”][vc_raw_html]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[/vc_raw_html][vc_separator color=”juicy_pink”][vc_column_text]Gilbert at first stopped in order not to go to finish off his compatriot, but after he noticed that the judge was not stopping the fight, he had to do it.
Thus, Gilbert Burns becomes the author of the only knockout for the entire tournament and wins the 5th victory in a row.
