“A ranked opponent would only make sense for me now, but whatever the UFC wants. That was the last fight on my contract, so hopefully I made a statement. I want a big deal next,” Burgos said after the event (via Matt Erickson & Ken Hathaway of MMA Junkie).

Burgos currently holds a 6-1-0 record in the UFC and is ranked #12 in the UFC Featherweight Division. 

The fighter has also competed twice now in Madison Square Garden, but Burgos says his second experience was better than the first one.

“The first time I competed in MSG, it was quick, like two minutes or something, so I didn’t have a chance to embrace it. This time, I soaked it in: walking out, being in there, walking back – I soaked it all in. It was awesome. It means a lot to me. You heard how loud the place was. I have so many friends and family here and my team, I knew the crowd would be electrifying,” says Burgos.

There has been no comment from the UFC at this time as to Burgos’ status with the company.
