Wonderboy is one of the best welterweight strikers in history but at the age of 38, he’s on the tail end of his career looking for the one last title shot run. Wonderboy is on a two-fight win streak but I don’t think he’s in his prime anymore. Gilbert Burns is coming off a title shot loss to Usman but prior he was on 6 fight win streak I think he has the ability to get the ball rolling again. My only concern would be his gas tank. I think he has the wrestling advantage but will he use it? It’s been five fights since he’s gotten a submission inside the UFC which came against Mike Davis debuting on short notice.

Pick: Gilbert Burns by Submission

Index Line: (-125) / (+105)

Favorite Prop: Gilbert Burns Round 1 or 2 (+360)
