2020 Half-Year Awards: The Newcomers

UFC News

Brazil’s Herbert Burns has long been one of those fighters expected to make a mark in the UFC, but the timing never aligned to bring “The Blaze” into the promotion. That changed last summer thanks to a first-round submission over Darrick Minner on season three of the Contender Series, and with a contract in hand, Burns kept on rolling, taking a little over four minutes to finish Nate Landwehr and Evan Dunham, easily securing his spot as the top UFC newcomer of the first half of 2020.

Others receiving votes – Spike Carlyle, Kyler Phillips, Nate Landwehr, Youssef Zalal, Mariya Agapova, Justin Jaynes

Voters – Jon Gagnon, Thomas Gerbasi, E. Spencer Kyte, Steve Latrell, Zac Pacleb, Gavin Porter
