Gilbert Burns continues to be a force at welterweight.

Burns faced Demian Maia in the co-main event of UFC Brasilia on Saturday. Many expected it to be a grapplefest with Maia initially taking Burns down.

However, “Durinho” was able to get back up on his feet and later drop Maia in emphatic fashion with a left hook. Maia was still in his wits but Burns dropped down and landed strikes before the referee called an end to the action in the first round.
