The fight went three full rounds of absolute violence and now PFL is sharing it, in full, for free ahead of Collard's fight with last season's champion Olivier Aubin-Mercier in the PFL Finals.
We almost didn't even get this fight. Burgos was a fill in for Natan Schulte who was removed from the PFL Playoffs after he was penalized for his low-energy fight with his friend and teammate Raush Manfio.
Ahead of the fight, Burgos says he didn't think Burgos even deserved to be in the Playoffs.
“The fans are raving about it because of me,” Collard said at a PFL media day. “They want to see me fight Shane. They don’t want to see Shane fight me. I’m stoked to fight him. They’ve been putting his face all over everything. You log into ESPN and you type in PFL, his face is the first ugly mug you see, and that annoys me. I’m ready to get in there and punch him.”
