The former champion was originally booked to face rising contender Leon Edwards in February before the event had to be cancelled due to coronavirus concerns. Facing him will be Gilbert Burns, a former lightweight making the move up to Welterweight then going on a tear boasting a five-fight win streak including most recently a knockout of former title challenger Damian Maia. The winner of this bout will have a strong claim at getting the next title shot against Kamaru Usman.
