Burns are coming to this bout on the back of a six-fight win streak which also includes a first-round stoppage of Demian Maia and also five-round domination of former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

Although those wins are undoubtedly impressive, they came against fighters who had past their peak. The ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ is coming into this fight after destroying Colby Covington on his first title defence and domination of Jorge Masvidal in the second defence.

Who will win Kamaru Usman v Gilbert Burns fight?

He has now extended his winning streak to 16 fights, and he is performing so confidently that it is difficult to see how Burns will be able to stop him. Indeed the Brazilian poses some threats to Usman, but he is a big and strong welterweight who has the strength and wrestling skills to counteract submission attempts.

Also in the stand-up, Usman has a sizeable advantage that should allow him to work at range against Burns, who is not known for his striking skills. Looking at this bout from every angle, we do expect Usman to be in total control. Will it go five rounds? Likely. Usman has gone to a decision in nine of his last 11 fights and since arriving in the UFC has only three stoppage wins on his career. Backing him to prevail with the help of the judges looks the best value here.
