UFC 258: Kamaru Usman vs. Gilbert Burns official weigh-in results.
We’re just one sleep away from the long-awaited showdown between former teammates Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns, as the two clash over Usman’s UFC welterweight championship in the main event of UFC 258.
Before we get to this point, however, both men, as well as the rest of the fight card, will have to make it through the official UFC 258 weigh-ins.
Usman has held the UFC’s 170-pound strap since soundly defeating Tyron Woodley at UFC 235. He’s made two successful defenses of the belt, scoring a fifth-round TKO of Colby Covington at UFC 245 and a unanimous decision win over Jorge Masvidal at UFC 251.
Burns comes into this fight on a six-fight win streak, and he is 4-0 since his most recent move to 170. Last year saw Burns score a highlight finish of Demian Maia before his own one-sided win over Woodley, the former champion.
Usman vs. Burns was originally scheduled to headline UFC 251, but Burns was forced off the card about a week before it was supposed to happen due to testing positive for COVID-19.
