Update 6:47pm: Herbert Burns wins by submission (rear naked choke) at 1:20 of Round 1
A catchweight bout between two fighters at different weight classes and points of their career takes place at UFC 250 on Saturday, June 6th in Las Vegas when Evan Dunham takes on Herbert Burns at 150 lbs. to split the difference between their usual weigh-in numbers.
Dunham drops down from lightweight at 155 for the fight, and enters with an 18-8-1 pro record, and 11-8-1 in UFC. He’s lost his last two fights, getting knocked out by Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Francisco Trinaldo. He’ll also be the smaller man in this fight, giving up three inches of reach and two inches of leg reach to his opponent.
Burns saw his brother Gilbert pull the upset win last Saturday in the main event over Tyron Woodley, and enters as a significant favorite here. He’s 10-2 in his MMA career with eight stoppages, and his defeat of Nate Landwehr in his first UFC match in January came via first round KO. It was his first knockout as a pro fighter, as the other seven early victories came via submission for the native of Rio de Janeiro.
