    He is one of the best BJJ fighter.
    Jacare, Maia level.

    Looks like he's got a good record. I'm a big fan of submission specialists, so if BJJ is his main weapon, I'll look forward to seeing him fight.

    Ok cool I'll watch for him than. As MMA and the UFC continue to expand and add fighters it harder to keep up.

    Well, given that Burns will be fighting above his natural weight, we could see an upset. Stahl is apparently a strong, experienced wrestler - will the BJJ-guru curse strike again, and Burns will be unable to take his man down? We'll see!

    Burns have had trouble to cut to LW.
    So he decided to fight at WW.

    Interesting. I still think this could be a tougher fight for Burns than some think. I thought Yan Cabral would submit Zak Cummings but he had a rough time with him. Burns is another level, granted, but if Stahl is the underdog I might stick a few quid on him! Stahl's standup is supposed to be decent, too.

    Shit, Andrade's snapped his leg it seems, rough for the guy.

    Was looking up fights with Burns and came across what appears to be the most unexciting first round ever of an MMA fight, until..

    Stahl seems to be a decent prospect too. I don't know why they do these prospect vs prospect matchups.
