Gilbert Burns Isn’t Happy With Being Behind Colby Covington In UFC Rankings

Gilbert Burns isn’t thrilled with the latest slate of UFC rankings that were released and him being listed behind Colby Covington. 

So here’s the deal, since Covington beat Tyron Woodley in the headliner of UFC on ESPN+ 36 by TKO, the promotion decided to move him into the #1 spot in the rankings. 

This is despite Burns being the #1 contender and the promotion targeting him getting a title shot against current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman in December at the UFC 256 pay-per-view event.

He just beat the number 5 and a guy coming from 2 loses n  without a soul! Who does this Rankings? @danawhite send me the contract ASAP #AndNew.”
