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.
