Burnell vs Sanchez was a back & forth fight, Testament to Burnell’s mental toughness and cardio going a high paced three round fight.
“I can say hands down for sure, I’m the slickest 145er in the world,” Burnell said at the post-fight news conference. “It may seem like I’m getting hit, but I’m rolling with the punches and all that stuff. I saw the significant strikes after the fight and I was like, ‘What the hell, man?’ Of course, he hit me with a little bit, but the shots he hit me with was like nothing.”https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2021/08/bellator-263-mads-burnell-anticipates-future-showdown-against-aj-mckee
Mads Burnell in his own right is one talented dude and will give AJ McKee a tough fight. Mads Burnell definitely deserves it after beating the title contender Emmanuel Sanchez.
Questionaire “Is AJ someone that you want to take.”
Answer ” Yeah later of course if that’s who if I have to fight for the title that’s who I have to fight.”
Burnell needs to rest, Chill with his family and fall of 2021 we can see AJ McKee have his first title defense.
