Gilbert Burns gets quick turnaround, meets Norman Parke at UFC Fight Night 67
Right after his win over Alex Oliveira on March 21, Gilbert Burns asked for a quick turnaround against Josh Thomson or Myles Jury at UFC Fight Night 67. The UFC gave him a fight on May 30, but not the opponent he was hoping for.
Undefeated as a mixed martial artist, Burns is set to take on The Ultimate Fighter winner Norman Parke at the Fight Night card in Goiania, Brazil. PVT first reported the match-up, and MMAFighting.com confirmed it with sources close to the situation.
