Rising welterweight contender, Khamzat Chimaev is one of the hottest prospects in the UFC right now. He got two wins in a span of 10 days upon his arrival in the organization, and he’s been on an absolute tear ever since. His last performance against Li Jingliang was absolutely terrifying.

Chimaev was long awaiting a fight that would get him to the top of the weight class as quickly as possible because he knows his potential has no bounds. Many people believe that Chimaev can be not only one but two-division champion in the UFC if he continues to run over the opponents the way he has shown in the past.

Many people like the likes of Belal Muhammad, Neil Magny, and Geoff Neal called Chimaev out multiple times but weren’t enough to satiate the latter’s competitive interest, that’s when Burns entered the scene. Former title challenger, Gilbert Burns is a force to be reckoned with, and he’s all set to derail this hype train.

Burns claimed he was on a 10 fight win streak once, and he was just as confident as Chimaev. Burns then faced a guy far more experienced than him, and he lost that fight. He believes Khamzat is a little over in his head right now, and he is the perfect guy to remind him of his place in the division. It’s easier said than done, but Burns possesses all the necessary skills to get the job done.

Khamzat is more than prepared for this fight, and he has a message for Burns and all the doubters. Talking about his hype on UFC 273 countdown, he said, “People say he’s hype… Just stop me! I respect his skills and everything, one of the best guys, but (he’s) not on my level. The king is coming for you guys. Watch the king.” After taking care of Burns, Khamzat wants a title fight against Kamaru Usman, and he’d like to make quick work of the champ to fulfill his destiny.
