A great duel could be outlined in UFC, with Gilbert Burns as the protagonist. The renowned Brazilian fighter, former challenger to the Welterweight title, does not rule out measuring himself against the star of the moment: Khamzat Chimaev. Being that way, in dialogue with MMA Junkie, the South American left some important words for the Swede, who is taking all the fans with him.

“For Colby, the perfect one would be me. That’s the fight I want. He knows I love him. But when it’s time to call a guy, when it’s time to pick an opponent, they don’t pick me. I think they know why. Leon (Edwards) never says my name. Colby never says my name. (Jorge) Masvidal never says my name. It is for a reason and they know why, “he said. Burns.

Later, Gilbert commented: “I know I lost that title fight, but I’ve been doing a lot of wonderful things in that division, and they know it. So that’s what I’m seeing. I’ll be ready. Colby, Masvidal, Leon, even Khamzat in the future, that’s a great option for me. I never say no to a fight. I still believe that Khamzat he has to work a little harder, but I’m still open to fighting any of these guys. “

Who is next for him?

“I think so. I think it’s real. I think they’ve tried it. People say, ‘Oh no. He’s just no. ‘ I think he fought a couple of good fighters. And the other thing too, the way he beat them. Sometimes people don’t understand the matchmaker. Sometimes they feed you. They want new contenders. They want new stars and feed a couple of boys. But sometimes they don’t destroy the boys as they should, ”said the Brazilian.

In conclusion, Gilbert Burns He assured, “Even the matchmaker is like, ‘Hey, feed that guy. He doesn’t want to eat. But he’s been doing a great job, you know, and I think it’s real. I think I’m going to face him very soon. I think he needs one more victory, and I think he will have the victory. And if things continue like this, like Colby didn’t even say my name, Masvidal, Leon. Why not? I will give him the opportunity ”.
