Shane Burgos Could Be A 145-Pound Darkhorse

Fighting in front of the fans in Madison Square Garden was a dream come true for Burgos and he didn’t disappoint.

Burgos, 27, has all the makings of a star. He has the talent, the skill, the work ethic, and oh yea the kid can fight too. Although his scrap with Kurt Holobaugh only lasted a little over 2 minutes, Burgos’s quick hands and heart were on full display last night as he submitted Holobaugh with a nasty armbar.

It will be interesting to see where matchmakers decide to take Burgos. I’d like to see him booked against the only man to beat him –¬†Calvin Kattar. Kattar is coming off of an impressive win in his own right over¬†Chris Fishgold.

Regardless, whatever plans the UFC brass has in store for Burgos should be interesting. Keep an eye on this featherweight darkhorse.
