Gilbert Burns Shares His Bold Prediction For Kamaru Usman

A welterweight title defense by champion Kamaru Usman against Gilbert Burns is the main event of UFC 251. 

Gilbert Burns Is Confident

Ahead of the showdown, Burns offered a bold prediction for the fight. 

“I’m going there to knock him out or submit him,” Burns said to MMA Fighting. “That’s what I want to do, but I think it’s going to be a war. I think Kamaru is tougher than Woodley and Demian (Maia), my last two fights. I had a great performance, but Kamaru is a different person, and I think it will be hard to either knock him out or submit him. That’s what I want in the fight, a finish, but I think it’s going to be an intense five-round war.”

The Alexander Volkanovski-Max Holloway rematch for the UFC featherweight title will co-headline the show. Also, Petr Yan vs. Jose Aldo for the vacant bantamweight title will go down. 

The show takes place on July 11 on Fight Island. Check out the betting odds here.
