Nigerian superstar Usman has a tight grip on the UFC Welterweight Championship after claiming it from Tyron Woodley in March 2019, and defending it against Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal since then.

Usman has won 16 consecutive fights, adding up to his outstanding 17-1 record, but Burns will be hoping to upset the odds and make the most of his title shot.

Brazilian star Burns’ most recent victory came over Woodley, and while his string of bouts haven’t come against the same calibre of fighter as Usman, this is a terrific opportunity to prove his credentials at the top table.
