Gilbert Burns Wiki Update Wiki

Gilbert "Durinho" Burns is a Brazilian MMA fighter and a three-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion. After winning the 2011 World BJJ Championship (he beat Kron Gracie in the final), he made his professional MMA debut in January 28, 2012. He won the fight by submission (rear-naked choke) in round 1. In 2012, Burns was chosen by Vitor Belfort to be the head grappling coach for Team Vitor on the first season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil. Burns is a 2nd degree Black Belt in Jiu Jitsu and also has a brother that fights for One FC Herbert "The Blaze" Burns.


Burns would compile a 7-0 record finishing all of his opponents before being noticed by the UFC. He would defeat Andreas Stahl by Unanimous Decision in his debut. He would follow that up with an even more impressive first round submission over Christos Giagos earning a Performance of the Night bonus. He will look to make it three in a row at UFC Fight Night 62 when he takes on Alex Oliveira.
