UFC 258 Preview

The welterweight belt is on the line Saturday as Kamaru Usman steps into the octagon to take on Gilbert Burns — his former teammate. Usman has a chance to tie Georges St-Pierre for most consecutive wins (13) in the welterweight

Usman has beat Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington in his last two title defenses. He gets what might be his toughest challenge in a familiar foe.

“He’s tough, and he’s followed the example that’s been put in front of him for years,” Usman said of Burns. “Him actually believing and following that example, look where it’s gotten him in recent years. I commend him for that. I’m, in a way, proud of him for being able to come up the rankings like that. At the end of the day, you have to step up to the guy that knows how to do this, that’s been doing this, and that’s what’s going to happen.

“I want to take it one fight at a time,” Usman said. “That’s the biggest piece of advice that some of my mentors have given me. I want to take it one fight at a time because as long as I do that and I go out there and I take care of business that’s in front of me, by the time I’m said and done, everyone is going to look back and say, ‘Wow, he really was the greatest to ever do this.’”

Burns was previously set to face off against Usman, but a positive COVID-19 test forced him to cancel the bout. He watched Masvidal take his place, but now he gets his long awaited shot.

“I’m enjoying every single moment because I missed it so much last July. I’m even enjoying the interviews. Every single thing because I couldn’t enjoy it last time. I’m grateful that I’m doing that right now. I’m super happy. I’m finally right here. Fight week. A couple more days; a couple more sleeps. I’m super, super, super excited. I can’t wait for Saturday night.”

The event lost a second main card fight this week when Bobby Green (27-11-1) and Jim Miller (32-15, 1 NC) was called off. Green reportedly collapsed backstage after weighing in.

“So to be clear I have air pockets in my lungs, I guess, and my kidneys failed,” Green wrote. “I messed my back up in training. I thought it was just pain from that.”
