Gilbert Burns Breakdown & Skill Study
Gilbert Durinho Burns provided us with his most impressive technical performance, despite his toughest test, Tyron Woodley, one of the most dominant welterweights of all time, being his opponent in tempo.
‘Durinho’ (little tough guy; Portuguese) has been on an impressive streak at 170 pounds and was recently named the #1 contender for his own team mate’s belt. An interesting sequence of events, as both went from grapplers, albeit different types, to complete mixed martial artists one of the most dominant welterweights of all time (striking), Neil Melanson (Catch Wrestling) and Greg Jones (Wrestling).
What makes the increasingly technical skillset so impressive is that while many-a-grappler has become a competent or even great striker, oftentimes grapplers with the success and pedigree of Burns (Bronze – ADCC, Gold – 3 times IBJFF – No Gi / Gi) can be understandably complacent in their grappling acumen. The best of the best however, as Danaher once told me, train grappling as a mixed martial artist does disciplines in total.
Without making this an essay no one reads, let’s break this thing down. I plan on doing a quick focus on some former skills shown, some interesting things from the Maia fight, and the main event of course. Without further ado…
