UFC 258 will be headlined by the first title fight of 2021 as former teammates square off for welterweight gold.
Kamaru Usman will look to defend his 170-pound title for the third time when he faces his former teammate at American Top Team in the No. 2-ranked Gilbert Burns at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Usman (17-1) has yet to taste defeat during his tenure in the UFC that started in 2015 when he won The Ultimate Fighter 21. He became champion when he dominated Tyron Woodley in 2019 and has defended his title against rivals Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal.
There may not be bad blood between Usman and Burns, but the Brazilian has been riding a winning streak of his own as a winner of six straight and four in a row after returning to the welterweight division in 2019. Burns has earned victories over Woodley, Demian Maia and Gunnar Nelson to put himself in a position to challenge for UFC gold.
