Confirmed at UFC 85, Kevin 'The Fire' Burns to fight Roan Carneiro at UFC 85, June 7th in London England. Coming off a spectacular win at the Victory Fighting Championship (VFC) on Friday May 9th where Kevin took the Interim Welterweight title by beating Bobby Voelker by knockout, Kevin Burns gets the call by the UFC to replace Ryo Chonan.

Kevin who has been training for years for the opportunity to show his abilities in the grandest stage of MMA, now gets the chance of a lifetime in replacing Ryo Chonan who pull out of  his fight against Roan Carneiro. Kevin without any hesitation takes the fight on less than two weeks notice, only a few weeks out from winning the interim welterweight title at the VFC.

This is a huge step up for Kevin as he steps in and pits his skills against a well versed Jiu Jitsu black belt who recently moved from Brazilian Top Team to now training at American Top Team with a stable of ring tested veterans. Kevin without question will be listed as the underdog, but will have the heart and will of a champion as he finds himself in the spotlight of the Ultimate Fighting Championship for the first, but I am sure, not the last time.

Good luck and kick some ass brother.
