    Mixing up his strikes, taking down a good wrestler and controlling him, threatening with multiple submissions.

    Fantastic

    but OAB is just barely gatekeeper level humper. Burns did look good but lets not get carried away.

    Khabib would need to change his strategy up a bit for burns

    He looked bad ass.

    Crazy BJJ and he was TEEing off with strikes at the end. Dude is a beast.

    He looked like a complete Fighter out there tonight, his best performance in the Octagon to date, had the striking, the counters, the takedowns, the trips, and the submission attempts.

    We always talk about Werdum and Jacare's striking being the most improved of any BJJ guy, but damn if Burns isn't in the convo.

    Yeah was amazed he dominated OAM in the clinch considering his background.

    I was rooting for Olivier, since I always root for Judo guys, but dayum, he had nothing for Burns on the ground.

    Can't forget that Dan Hooker knocked his head off in the first round not that long ago though. That said he did look fantastic. Mercier has been on a good run recently and Burns absolutely dominated him.

    True OAM isn't a world beater, but he's a tough out and a great wrestler and GB dominated him in all areas

    Sometimes he can wing for shots and miss and gass himself out. Also normally he can get taken down and he is relucant to stay on the bottom but he improved his game.

    Khabib doesn’t need to change his strategy for anyone let alone burns
