Demian Maia (28-9-0) fights Gilbert “Durinho” Burns (17-3-0) in a Welterweight bout at UFC Fight Night 170 at the Ginásio Nilson Nelson in Brasilia, Brazil on Saturday evening.

The 42 year-old veteran Maia is currently on a three-fight winning streak, with his latest victory coming with his 14th submission in his last fight in October 2019 by finishing Ben Askren in the third round.

Although both fighters are Brazilian, the majority of the crowd will be backing Maia, who is hugely popular as a UFC legend in his homeland.

Betting Odds - Winner

The 33 year-old Gilbert Burns is on a four-fight UFC winning streak himself at present, with his last victory coming via unanimous decision against Iceland’s Gunnar Nelson last September. His last loss came in July 2018, when he was knocked out by Dan Hooker.

Both of these fighters are Brazilian jiu-jitsu experts and they could well cancel each other out on that front. This could very well come down to a decision and with Burns being the more technical and powerful striker, he could hold the upper hand.
