Check out the UFC 258 promotional video that has just dropped.
The welterweight title match-up is just weeks away and it appears the UFC are keen to get fans hyped about the fight in which will see former teammates Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns duke it out.
‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ has enjoyed a dominant reign at 170lb king since dethroning Tyron Woodley in 2019. Usman stopped Colby Covington in his first defence before making easy work of Jorge Masvidal last time out.
Burns burst onto the welterweight scene last year when he knocked out BJJ legend Demian Maia. He capitalized on that win by beating former champion Tyron Woodley over five rounds. It was only bad luck that stopped Burns from getting his well-earned title shot in 2020. The Brazilian tested positive for COVID-19 just days before he was supposed to compete for the belt at UFC 251.
