UFC 273: Khamzat Chimaev 🆚 Gilbert Burns

UFC 273 Khamzat Chimaev now takes on Gibert Burns who is raked at #2. If the #11 Chimaev were to win he would leapfrog the rankings.

Can Khamzat prove himself against the BJJ world champion Burns?

Khamzat is perfect 10-0 and 4-0 in the UFC but this is a big step up for him. Can he do what he says he’s going to do and take out Burns the way he did his last 10 opponents?

Khamzat by mauling in two rounds.

Usman said Khamzat would still need to win a few more fights even if he wins this one.

Usman already beat everyone in his division and the top guys twice. After he fights Leon he has to fight Khamzat if Khamzat wins.

No point in fighting people you already beat when someone else is destroying people in your division.


The UFC has announced a welterweight matchup between Khamzat Chimaev and Gilbert Burns for UFC 273.

The 170-pound contest had been in the works for some time but was finalized only recently. The UFC announced Saturday the bout is now official for its next pay-per-view event on April 9 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Chimaev (10-0) is one of the most intriguing prospects in UFC history. Originally born in Chechnya, now fighting out of Sweden, the 27-year-old is 4-0 in the UFC, with four first-round finishes.

A former amateur wrestler, Chimaev has dominated his UFC competition thus far but has yet to face a top-10 opponent. He made a splash in his UFC debut in July 2020, when he won two fights in two different weight classes in a 10-day span.

Burns (20-4) is a former welterweight title challenger fighting out of Sanford MMA in Boca Raton, Florida. He came up short in a title bid against Kamaru Usman in February 2021 but has since rebounded with a decision win over Stephen Thompson.

A featherweight title fight between Alexander Volkanovski and Chan Sung Jung, aka Korean Zombie, is scheduled to headline UFC 273 at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.

Gilbert has 0.0 chance of winning this fight. It’s a complete waste of everyone’s time

I love Burns, but aside from having some KO power, he has nada for Chimaev

I will wait to see who gritty bets on
