Norman Parke to fight Gilbert Burns in Brazil

“Stormin” Norman Parke (20-3-1) will be back in action on May 30th in Brazil on the UFC Fight Night 67 card which will be headlined by Carlos Condit vs. Thiago Alves.

His opponent will be the undefeated Gilbert Burns (10-0). The Brazilian made his UFC debut last July and has wracked off 3 straight victories, including two submission wins in his last two fights.

This will be the first fight back for Norman Parke since his disappointing defeat to long-time UFC fighter Gleison Tibau in Boston earlier this year.

The Next Gen NI fighter lost a very close split decision and is very excited to get back in there and get back to winning ways. Previously, Parke was undefeated in 11 fights, including 5 in the UFC.

This will be Parke’s second visit to Brazil. He controversially drew with TUF Brazil winner Leonardo Santos, a decision that was universally met with criticism.
