Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman (17-1) is the UFC Welterweight Champion, and the fifth ranked fighter in the Men’s Pound-For-Pound rankings. Usman has a phenomenal record and resume, and it keeps improving. His last three fights are the stuff of legends. Usman had a title match at UFC 235, where he took the Welterweight championship from Tyron Woodley. Then in December of 2019, Usman won a highly anticipated battle with Colby Covington at UFC 245 in brutal fashion, breaking Covington’s jaw and knocking him out in the final round. Finally Usman was dominant as he scored a unanimous decision over Jorge Masvidal in UFC 251 last summer.

Usman was originally scheduled to take on Gilbert Burns in 2020. However, Burns tested positive for COVID-19, and had to be removed from the fight. But Usman has never been one to shy away from a difficult challenge, so he is ready to tackle his top contender.

Gilbert “Durinho” Burns (19-3) is the top ranked contender in the UFC Welterweight division. Burns has fought the majority of his UFC career as a lightweight even though he started out as a welterweight. Since he moved back up in weight, he’s 4-0 including two back to back Performance of the Night winning fights. At lightweight he had success, but was unable to crack the highest levels after three losses in four years. Now he’s ready to face the challenge that eluded him at the lower weight — a championship fight.

Burns is coming off two wins against other fighters ranked in the top ten, including former champion Tyron Woodley. Burns was in total control for five rounds, and made it clear he was ready to take on Usman for the title.
