Two featherweights seeking the Top 15 rankings with a victory make it to the main card of UFC 252 when Herbert Burns takes on Daniel Pineda live on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Burns missed the 146-pound weight limit by 3.5 pounds, and will forfeit 30% of his purse to Pineda

Burns is a rising star along side his brother Gilbert, the #1 contender at welterweight. With an 11-2 with eight submissions and a knockout in his MMA career, he is 2-0 record in the UFC with two first-round stoppages and only 4:03 of total fight time. He’s landed a total of 12 strikes and two takedowns in his dominating victories, including his last outing on June 6th at UFC 250, an 80-second win via rear-naked choke over Evan Dunham.

Pineda makes his return to the UFC after being dropped from the roster with a 3-4 record in March 2014. The 35-year-old returns with a 26-13-2 record as an MMA fighter, but had his last two bouts in the Professional Fighters League overturned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for elevated testosterone levels. His drug suspension ended April 18th, and the Houston, Texas resident was 8-2 since leaving the promotion. His exciting style has led to never winning a fight that’s gone to a decision: All 26 of his wins are finishes, eight knockouts and 18 submissions to end all his fights.
