UFC returns this weekend with the second pay-per-view of the year, featuring Kamaru Usman against Gilbert Burns in the main event.

Following the blockbuster success of UFC 257 where Conor McGregor suffered the first knockout loss of his career, UFC 258 will see a stacked card headlined by a welterweight title fight.

Former American Top Team teammates Usman and Burns will finally square off in the Octagon in a rebooking of their originally scheduled fight from July.

UFC 251 lost its main event back then when Gilbert Burns tested positive for COVID-19 and had to withdraw from the bout. Jorge Masvidal stepped in on a little more than a week's notice. However, Kamaru Usman was clinical as ever, securing a clean decision win over 'Gamebred' after five rounds.
