    Anyone else getting behind this guy? He seems like a really cool guy, his fighting style makes him look as though he is barely trying but then he gets the knockout.

    I know he is only 2 fights into his ufc Career, both times ive watched him i thought he was going to get beat. But yet he has pulled it off both times.

    I don't know if he has the skills to challenge Holloway but i like watching him fight, he is definately one of my favourite fighters right now.

    I hope he progresses up the rankings, i'd like to see how far he can go.

    His fundamental boxing is
    Beautiful

    I've picked all Burgos fights correct including this one
    I knew Kattar would be too much for him

    Suprised Fili got to a decision looking back but it was short notice

    He's looked excellent in both of his UFC appearances, i'm excited to see his next fight. Glad him and Burgos got fight of the night, it was an awesome scrap.

    Kattar vs Holloway will be a banger. Can't wait.

    Burgos definately looked dangerous, but he looked to be working twice as hard as Kattar was, but getting nowhere.

    I like how easy Kattar makes it look. He seems like a good guy aswell.

    I underestimated him going into this fight. Did get a good chuckle when he was scheduled to fight Fili as his nickname is "The Boston FInisher" yet he was riding a 6 fight decision streak on the regionals. Good talent though.

    I followed him on twitter... Guy has "NO" following. He's a future star, no doubt.

    his striking is very impressive. he's certainly legit. his first two UFC opponents are no joke. we just need to see what he can do against a top notice wrestler and submission specialist.

    Good technique. Reminds me of a larger iaquinta...which is odd because he’s in a smaller weight class

    A little salty he KOed one of my favorite up and coming fighters. He did look good though.

    Burgos' hipster ass hair wasn't doing him any favors.

    He could do with working on his head movement and footwork a bit, his offense great but he leaves himself in danger a bit more that he should.

    I thought his footwork looked fine and he was great at covering up after throwing his own combos.

    He's one of very few guys who can fight from both stances comfortably at FW.

    His shot selection was great during the finish

    Also, them jabs while moving laterally

    He needs a ranked opponent. I get the impression that he needs aggressive fighters like Burgos to Really bring out the best in him.

    It was good at times, he reminded a bit of Conor actually, but there was a few times he kinda stayed in Burgos range after his attack and had a mini brawl which it didn't think was his best option.

    yeah, but i dont think he was outmatched in the pocket. The only thing i didn 't like was when he'd stay against the cage covered up for a bit too long when burgos went to the body.

    what impressed me the most was his ability to control the range against probably the biggest FW in the division. Burgos is 5'11 with a 75 inch reach and thick too.That's a Welterweight frame.

    I'd like to see Kattar vs Zombie if Zombie is healthy.

    practically none of the media are even talking about him too. it's a shame because i think most people switched to rory vs. lima while kattar vs. burgos started, but kattar put on the best performance of the night. I hope he starts getting more attention.

    If I remember correctly, this dude looked dangerous and aggressive.
