The UFC returns Saturday with UFC 258 from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main event is Kamaru Usman putting the welterweight championship on the line against former teammate and No. 2-ranked Gilbert Burns.
Usman and Burns used to train together at American Top Team. Understanding they would be squaring off, Usman left the gym in June and headed to Colorado alongside trainer Trevor Wittman.
Usman and Burns were set to clash at UFC 251 in July, but Burns contracted the coronavirus 10 days before the fight and had to be pulled from the card. The UFC pulled a rabbit out of their hat and booked Jorge Masvidal to step in on short notice. After a shaky first round, Usman dominated the remaining four rounds to win by unanimous decision to retain his belt for the second time in his sole outing in 2020 — extending his winning streak to 16.
Burns is an entirely different fighter since returning to 170 pounds in August 2019. The Brazilian is 4-0 with every victory coming in dominant fashion, particularly his last two performances: stopping former middleweight and welterweight title challenger Demian Maia and beating former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley by unanimous decision.
