What is next for Gilbert Burns?


Gilbert Burns is aiming to fight for the title again and win it within 2021. He said that he wants to repeat what Robbie Lawler did in 2014. Robbie Lawler lost to Johny Hendricks at UFC 171 in a bid to claim Welterweight gold. He lost the fight, but bounced back within the same year. He fought twice within the next four months and challenged Hendricks for another title bout. This time around, he was successful in becoming the Welterweight champion. Gilbert Burns drew from Robbie Lawler's example and said,

"The way I see right now, I just wanna do like Robbie Lawler, you know. He was the only guy, if I'm not wrong, lost to Johny Hendricks and then just got right back. He had a couple of weeks, fought again, and became a champion. That's exactly what I wanna do."

As far as Kamaru Usman is concerned, he has made it very clear that he wants to face Jorge Masvidal next. Thus, the options that Gilbert Burns has available to him are Michael Chisea, Leon Edwards, Stephen Thompson and Colby Covington. However, the UFC is already planning on booking a fight between Colby Covington and Leon Edwards.

Who do you think Gilbert Burns should face in his desired quick turnaround?
