Gilbert Burns is ready to fight Masvidal: "No takedowns"

Gilbert Burns has enough faith in his stand-up and said he is ready to fight Masvidal under a special contract that will not allow takedowns in the fight. Burns otherwise comes from a fight that is a potential candidate for the fight of the year, and that is three rounds of war against a new star, Khamzat Chimaev.

Gilbert said: “He’s coming from two losses, but that’s to Kamaru Usman, the pound-for-pound champion, and Colby Covington, No. 1 [ranked welterweight]. That’s the fight that I want. It’s the fight that makes sense.

That’s the one that’s going to get me going, motivate me, and I still believe I can beat the guy. That’s the fight that I want next, Jorge Masvidal.

Burns is ready to sign a contract that forbids takedowns

“I can sign the contract — no takedowns.

Let’s just do it. I’m looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to putting on a show. Another crazy fight and another crazy finish and I do believe I can strike with Jorge Masvidal. Once again, I’ve got a lot of respect for the guy.

I think he’s very tough, he’s one of the BMF’s, over 50 fights, but I still believe I can knock him out”. Although the pure stand-up fight against Jorge Masvidal, 'Street Judas' is very likely quite dangerous, Burns believes in his abilities and wants to give fans a fight they will want to watch, and maybe earn that 'BMF' status.

“To be honest, to be who I am, I want a little bit more juice I got from the last fight,” Burns said. “A lot of love and support from the fans and I kind of fell in love with that. I always want to fight like that.

I told my coach a couple times, I want to fight like [Michael] Chandler, like Justin Gaethje, I want to fight like that. I love the way it was the last time. '' Durinho admitted. By the way, Burns has celebrated three times in the last five fights, and defeats were inflicted on him by Kamara Usman and Khamzat Chimaev.

Burns bought the hearts of the fans after the last fight and became one of the favorites in the category, and whether there will be a contract for the fight against Masvidal remains to be seen.
