UFC: Former BJJ world champion and UFC Welterweight Gilbert Burns discusses his knock-out power -

He recently was in a conversation with MMA Junkie. In the interview, he talked about his upcoming opponent and also about his largely improved striking. Here’s what he had to say:

I think he’s a very tough guy, despite this being his UFC debut, I think he’s a very tough guy, despite this being his UFC debut. He has more fights than I. He has multiple submission victories and has been in title bouts. He’s well travelled and trains with a good team. He has great jiu-jitsu and stand-up. He’s tall, long, and a southpaw. Opponents like that are always challenging. Plus he’s good on the ground.

I think it’s a great match-up. I think I have the right style to beat him. I’m ready. My goal is to pressure him until he breaks.

It was something I’d been aiming to do for some time, I put faith in my stand-up during my fights. I managed to land a strike I’d been trying since the start of the bout. We talked about it in the locker room. I knew if I landed it, I’d drop him. I connected, and he dropped. It was great, to have a knockout victory in the UFC. I already had various wins by submission.

Everyone in my weight class now knows I have good stand-up and KO power. I can get a finish both on the ground and on the feet.

Everyone in my weight class now knows I have good stand-up and KO power. I can get a finish both on the ground and on the feet. I plan to make no errors and capitalise on any opening I see. I’ll pressure him so I can submit him or knock him out.

I’m not thinking about what happens after the fight. I just plan to show up ready for 15 minutes. I’m ready to have a dominant performance.
