Bill Algeo has defeated Herbert Burns via second round TKO in the preliminary card of UFC Long Island. It appears that Burns was either suffering from a knee injury or simply from fatigue after a hard-fought first round.

Herbert Burns appeared to be seconds away from victory in round one, as he locked Bill Algeo up in a triangle armbar. Algeo simply refused to tap, despite Burns landing repeated elbows. However, after an extended period of time, Algeo escaped the triangle and began landing brutal ground strikes, appearing to stun Burns in multiple occasions.
