Wants to redeem himself: Gilbert Burns prepares to strike at UFC

Gilbert Burns (19-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) wants to get a title shot again. Although he has already measured himself against the Welterweight champion and was knocked out, he wants to build a different path. Kamaru Usman ran him over a few months ago, so now he wants to show what he’s made of. In that way, he spoke on the MMA Fighting Trocação Franca podcast in Portuguese and left a lot of information.

“I don’t think I will fight him while he’s at number 10. I think he will fight one more time and after winning against a top 5 or top 6 Welterweight, getting closer to the top 5, I would fight him, without any problem. Top-10, I wouldn’t fight him. But that’s me fighting myself. The top 10 doesn’t make sense, but I want to fight, so it’s tough. I have asked to fight Neil Magny many times, who is around No. 9, “Burns said.

Too, Gilbert he asserted: “UFC He didn’t want to give me this fight because of the ranking situation, so they didn’t even offer me Khamzat because they just said yes. I wouldn’t give Neil Magny because of the ratings. But man, I have so much desire to fight that it would be hard for me to say no to a fight. It would be the fight of the night. They would have to pay us the pay-per-view money because it would be a great fight. “

Look for the best

“We can stand and trade, we can fight, we can trade takedowns. I don’t think he knocked me down like Li did, but if he knocked me down, it would be amazing. This fight will happen one day. I’m not sure if it will be this year, but I think it will happen next. I think Khamzat is really tough. Is new to UFC but he wants to fight. I like that style, calling everyone. He trades, has heavy hands, struggles and sharp grips, ”he explained.

To close, Gilbert Burns He summed up: “The hype is on, bro, and it’s good for him. He’s doing a great job. Who wouldn’t want that kind of exaggeration? But I think it’s tough and it’s doing its part. He went there and crashed, he took the mic and he knows how to talk, he knows how to ask for fights, he knows how to tweet and talk trash. I think he’s doing a great job. I think there are a lot of high-level fighters and fighters in the division that would complicate things for him. “
