R1: Fitch whiffs on an early leg kick and walks Burkman into a corner. Burkman is composed and patiently looking to counter-punch, and it turns out to be well worth the wait. He drills Fitch with a lightning-fast left/right/left combo that stuns him, then cinches up a tight guillotine when Fitch pursues a defensive takedown. A moment later, before the referee can even intervene, Burkman just stands up and celebrates while Fitch naps on the canvas. This was pure domination, and quite a shocking and definitive performance.
