Gilbert Burns

Gilbert Burns is coming to this matchup against Stephen Thomspon after a grueling knockout loss coming from Kamaru Usman in UFC 258. That fight ended in the third round at the 34-second mark and it snapped his six-fight winning streak. He is also the second-ranked welterweight contender and a win could make him earn another title shot. This fighter loves to spend time on the ground and going for the submission victory but his hands can also deliver a vicious knockout. “Durinho” is his ring name and he carries the pedigree of great Brazilian fighters coming into the UFC.

Stephen Thompson

Stephen Thompson is now ranked as the fifth-best contender for the UFC welterweight championship. This fighter managed to pick himself up after losing to Darren Till and Anthony Pettis. Heading to this match, he is on back-to-back wins by unanimous decision against Vicente Luque and Geoff Neal. Thompson carries the ring name as the “Wonderboy” and his resiliency to take a beating made him a great watch for MMA purists. He should go for the knockout and avoid going against Burns on the ground. His record is now at 16 wins and half of those came from submissions while also owning seven knockouts and one submission victory for his career.
