Let’s put it mildly: Ending up on the receiving end of a submission choke from Gilbert Burns is a situation best avoided at all costs. That’s because the third-degree black belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu has built a career on putting his opponents to sleep with one of a kind TKO and submission skills. Training alongside his brothers from a young age, “Durinho” fortified his technique at the iconic Nova União fight academy. He’s been unstoppable since: After earning not one but three World Championship titles in Jiujitsu, the native of Niterói, Brazil was tapped as the head grappling coach for UFC fighter Vitor Belfort on “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil” television show in 2012.

But coaching from the sidelines didn’t last. Burns decided to step into the Octagon himself and made his UFC debut in 2014, instantly earning wins and Performance of the Night bonuses with his impeccable grappling and bulldozer striking game. Steadily rising through the ranks, Burns defeated top contenders, took a shot at the title, while always advancing his martial arts. A lifelong student of the game, he’s far from finished: Watch him tighten his grip around the UFC’s Welterweight division. Lights out!
