UFC 258: Kamaru Usman vs. Gilbert Burns live results, updates, highlights from full card

Kamaru Usman looks to make his third straight welterweight title defense Saturday night when he faces Gilbert Burns at UFC 258.

Kamaru Usman is a perfect 12-0 since joining the UFC in 2015, and he's building up quite the reputation as a fighting champion within this streak. Usman will look to make his third straight welterweight title defense when he faces Gilbert Burns in the main event of UFC 258, live from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, and on pay-per-view Saturday night. Maycee Barber faces Alexa Grasso in the co-main event.

Since soundly defeating Tyron Woodley to become the welterweight champion in March 2019, Usman has defended the title with a thrilling fifth-round TKO of Colby Covington in December 2019 before producing a unanimous decision over Jorge Masvidal last July. Burns was supposed to clash in the Octagon against Usman at that UFC 251 event in July 2020 but contracted COVID-19 10 days before the fight, as Masvidal stepped in to fill his spot.

Burns is 4-0 since returning to welterweight, having defeated a pair of former champions in Woodley by unanimous decision last May and Demian Maia via first-round TKO (punches) prior to that in March. Considering that Usman and Burns trained together at American Top Team before only makes this bout all the more intriguing.

Will Usman dominate his way to another successful title defense, or does Burns use this opportunity to become world champion?
