Kamaru Usman Vs. Gilbert Burns Will Headline Tonight's UFC 258

Kamaru Usman Vs. Gilbert Burns Will Headline Tonight's UFC 258

The second UFC pay-per-view of 2021 will feature a welterweight championship match between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns, with Kelvin Gastelum, Ian Heinisch, Maycee Barber, and Alexa Grasso in action as well.

Kamaru Usman (17 – 1) will defend the UFC Welterweight title against former teammate Gilbert Burns. This is the third title defense for the 170-pound champion as Usman is coming off strong wins over Colby Covington (UFC 245) and Jorge Masvidal (UFC 251).

Burns (19 – 3) has yet to be defeated in the welterweight division, with the Brazilian fighter getting impressive victories over former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley and Demian Maia. Burns is currently in the midst of a six-fight winning streak and he hasn’t suffered a loss since 2018.

Ultimate Fighter 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum (15 - 6) and Ian Heinisch (14 – 3) will collide in a middleweight bout that could get either competitor one step closer to being in the top five of the division. Gastelum is in need of a win as the California native is on a three-fight losing streak; however, Heinisch is fresh off a KO victory over Gerald Meerschaert.

Expect Alexa Grasso, Julian Marquez, Chris Gutierrez, Jim Miller, Anthony Hernandez, Dhiego Lima, Ricky Simon, and Miranda Maverick to be in action.
