Gilbert Burns Durinho has been in the UFC for quite a while. He’s been 7-3 in the UFC and 14-3 overall in MMA. At age 32 Burns is just 2 years senior to Kron Gracie who he frequently faced back at IBJJF events.
“I think Kron has everything to be the champion of the category”, exalts Durinho. “The fact that he grew up close to the fountain, within the Gracie family, brings a lot of punch, which makes up for the little UFC experience. Just remember that he was at Rickson’s corner since he was young, in Japan. He’s a guy who grows under pressure, he always comes in to finish. ” Durinho told Graciemag
“The main thing is, with the victories, to be able to keep his head in place and not let fame and praise divert the athlete from his way. Fame brings good and bad things to the same extent, many people begin to approach and not always with beneficial advice. “
