The welterweight title showdown between champion Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns is finally happening. The long-awaited fight is headlining UFC 258 on Feb. 13 from the APEX in Las Vegas.
This is the third time Usman vs. Burns has been scheduled, and this time it looks like it's really going to happen. They were first slated to face off at UFC 251 in July 2020 as one of the first major fights from Dana White's Fight Island, but Burns tested positive for COVID-19 and the fight had to be scuttled. It was rescheduled for UFC 256 just two months ago, but that time Usman pulled out due to undisclosed injuries.
