Gilbert Burns Ready To Face Kamaru Usman,
To give assurance to Durinho, recently Dana White conveyed, whenever the Brazilian comes back he will be the first in line to face Kamaru Usman. However, these claims can take a turnaround as the Welterweight Champion is on a 180-day medical suspension, and may not fight again this year.
Yet, it is sure-shot clear that whenever the showdown between the two fighters will be fixed, the follow-up of that will pave the way for adrenaline rush.
Both the fighters have an immaculate MMA record, as Burns is 19-3, and is No.1 in the welterweight rankings, on the other hand after defeating Jorge Masvidal at UFC 251, Kamaru Usman has furthered his undefeated UFC winning streak to 12-0, and has an overall MMA record of 17-1.
Therefore, now all eyes on experts and on the UFC administration over the speculations of the date of the fight.
