Hopefully, you didn’t tune in late to UFC Fight Night: Pittsburgh. If you did, you missed Gilbert ‘Durinho’ Burns’ explosive knockout of Jason Saggo.

It is no easy feat to win a performance bonus when you are the first fight on a UFC card. Especially UFC: Pittsburgh, where there were eight finishes out of ten fights. Unfortunately for Durinho, he was that first fight of the night. In my opinion, his knockout should have won a performance bonus, because it was damn impressive.
Durinho is a multiple time jiu-jitsu champion, so a walk-off knockout seemed improbable. However, he did it and he did it in spectacular fashion. He slipped a punch and threw a counter right hand that sent Saggo to the canvas.
Burns walked away like he was Mark freakin Hunt!
