Usman vs. Burns was initially scheduled for UFC 251 in July but was delayed after Burns tested positive for COVID-19. When Burns stepped out, Jorge Masvidal stepped in to face the champion and lost a decisive unanimous decision to Usman on the night.
Now, it looks like Burns will finally get his shot at Usman and the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 258.
In a video posted to The Body Lock’s YouTube channel, Patrick Auger and Drake Riggs discuss the potential rebooking of Usman vs. Burns and share their predictions for the fight.
