Burns Warns Muhammad That He Is No Match For Him – ‘I’m Putting This Guy Away’

Gilbert Burns is confident that he can secure a victory against Belal Muhammad in their welterweight bout at UFC 288 on May 7th, 2023.

Victory for the winner boosts their chances of securing a title fight, later in the year, instead of Colby Covington. The pair arrive into the fight on good form.

Belal arrives into the fixture, having won his last four fights. Meanwhile, Burns has also won his last two bouts, which included victory over Jorge Masvidal.

Burns’ Comments

“Because now I can get a finish. If I want to solidify myself as the No. 1 contender, I’ve got to take this guy out.” Burns

“With Belal Muhammad, I’m putting this guy away. I don’t care how many rounds it takes, but I’m putting this guy out of there.

“There is no way he’s going 25 minutes with me. So that’s the main reason to go five rounds, just to put this guy out and get a finish,” Burns via MMA Junkie

And the anticipation for the fight was evident on social media.
