Felder, Burns Collide in Brooklyn

Unbeaten on the east coast since turning pro in 2011, Philadelphia's Paul Felder will welcome a fight in Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Feb. 11 when he takes on groundfighting ace Gilbert "Durinho" Burns in a UFC 208 lightweight matchup.

In a previously announced bout for the event, Holly Holm meets Germaine de Randamie in a five-round clash for the first UFC women’s featherweight title.

Winner of two of his last three, Felder is an exciting striker with Performance of the Night and Fight of the Night awards to his name, but in his January win over Daron Cruickshank, he showed off his submission game impressively. Then again, the ground game is where jiu-jitsu black belt Burns shines, with three of his four UFC wins coming by way of tap out. But the gritty Brazilian isn't bothered by a standup battle with anyone, making this a clash that could end up going everywhere before a winner emerges.
