Two featherweights clashed at Bellator 276 when Mads Burnell and Adam Borics met.
Adam Borics and Mads Burnell found themselves in the midst of the deepest divide in the world Bellator currently, and they are in a collision at Bellator 276. The two men are both 2nd in the Bellator Featherweight Leaderboard, and both men could have a title lined up to enter. summer, let’s say AJ McKee beat Patricio “Pitbull” Freire in their rematch at Bellator 277.
If McKee loses to Freire, there is likely to be a three-part fight, delaying the winner of Burnell and the Borics as early as the end of the year. If McKee retains, then he will soon have Burnell and Borics winners.
It’s a war far from over, however, and no one can just look at each other in their quest for gold.
Mads Burnell and Adam Borics will be a style clash at Bellator 276.
Burnell’his nickname should be ‘Noose’ because he always chokes people in his battles. Of his 16 victories, 10 came by some form of submission; Usually Japanese tie. He’s pretty good at holding, and he’s really not someone you want to hit the ground with. He’s not a heavyweight boxer, and while he will throw, he does most of his best work on the ground.
Burnell hasn’t lost since 2018, and his most recent two defeats have come from submission; an area where he has improved greatly since early career losses.
Borics is more of a Jack-of-all-trades type. He has a well-rounded body and is very comfortable standing and pounding like when he is narrowly or on the ground. He made a name for himself in 2019 when he beat fellow featherweight rising star Adam Pico with a flying knee strike, and he has since lost 4-1 . His only loss was Darrion Caldwell.
However, he has been off for almost a year, with his last game coming 11 months ago against Jeremy Kennedy, a unanimous victory. In fact, the last three matches, all wins, have come to a decisive victory. The Borics don’t have the finishing ability like Burnell and that’s why the fight against Borics.
Winner: Mads Burnnell
