Had no reason to dislike the guy before but I'm sure he lost some fans with that reckless back of the head nonsense at the end. One or two I can understand, but that many just shows a lack of respect for his opponent who happens to be the nmfer. All to put an ❗ on a fight he was already winning. Bad business decision, brotha.

I've seen almost all of WB fights, he won most and lost some, but I've never seen someone scared of him as Gilbert was. WB lost because of the stupid rules that award fighters for takedowns that mount to nothing. When Gilbert took him down I thought we gonna see a BJJ master class and a great ground game. But he didn't do that! He played the cowards game. Cowards who want to play the system score the take down, do ground control, pretend to set something up or just look busy and waste time. That's a win in the books but nobody want to see that. Even tho he tried to look cocky after the fight, he quickly became apologetic because he knows that it's the worst way to win. He won the fight but lost the game.

Congrats to burns I called it that he will take him to the ground and pretty much do what Jan did against izzy, wonderboy proved he was the better striker today and so burns had to just out wrestle him. Burns is a great striker so I was hoping for more stand up but it is what it is

This guy deserves nothing that he's calling for. He can't even follow the bloody rules (belligerent strikes to the back of the head), so why should he even get the opportunity to fight for the title again?

@Tony Montana what would the ref do? He would just stand him up and warn him. Then once he did that the bell rings and the fight is over. It was at the end of the fight. Burns already secured the win

@Tony Mcfadyen I don't get the negative criticism he always gets, but then again a huge proportion of the MMA viewers are not fighters themselves in any way shape or form besides being elite at hiding behind the keyboard and screen lol. Coming back from a loss tells a lot about strength of heart and mind etc, many fighters fold up and retire after taking an L, they can't come to terms with it.

If Burns can take him down, Usman could do it easily. If Burns is stunning Wonderboy, this version of Usman will KO Wonderboy. The thing with WB, is that he is not finishing anyone lately. Don't think Usman will feel any threat from WB and even if he does, he could easily make a repeat of Usman-Masvidal 1.

Wonderboy has defeated plenty of world class grapplers before. The issue wasnt just grappling. Gilbert had BOTH hands and grappling, making Wonderboy too cautious on the feet. Josh Thomson has put it perfect in his podcast, “Gilbert could oppose Thompson on the feet, but Thomspon is no match for Gilbert in grappling”
