In a truly dominant performance, Gilbert Burns rose to the biggest occasion of his fighting career to handily defeat former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley via unanimous decision.
Setting out his stall early on with a punch that wobbled the former 170 lbs king, Burns proceeded to open up a cut on Woodley’s eyebrow from full mount on the mat.
With an impressive first round in the bag, Burns never let up on Woodley and maintained his control for the full 25 minutes.
