Herbert Burns submits Evan Dunham early into first-round.
On Saturday night, June 6, the UFC holds its first-ever pay-per-view event inside the Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The promotions’ fifth event during the COVID-19 pandemic, UFC 250 is headlined by double champion Amanda Nunes, who defends her featherweight strap against Felicia Spencer.
The co-main event is a bantamweight clash between former champion Cody Garbrandt and Raphael Assuncao.
The event will kick off with a 150 catchweight bout between Evan Duham and Herbert Burns.
Dunham, a UFC veteran, is coming out of retirement for the fight. The 38-year-old last fought in September 2018. While fighting plenty of big names in his career, Dunham piled up a 18-8-1 record. His only downside is that he hasn’t won since 2016.
Meanwhile Burns, who is the brother of No.1 welterweight contender Gilbert Burns, is coming off a win in his UFC debut when he knocked out Nate Landwehr at UFC Night Night 166. The Dana White Contender Series alum is 10-4 in his career.
Here’s a round-by-round breakdown of their fight.
Dunham temporarily drops Burns, but Burns gets up real quick and isn’t phased at all. Burns then comes forward and grabs ahold of Dunham and takes the fight to the canvas, where he starts to work as the opening minute comes to a close.
A few seconds later Burns gets the rear naked choke locked in and ends the fight as Dunham taps out.
