“This is a tough one. I’m going to lean towards Khamzat. I’m sorry Gilbert, I know we’re buddies, I know we’re friends so if you see this, I hope you prove me wrong. I do. I do apologize. But you could say I’ve been sold the hype.

I’m just telling you what he (Khamzat) did to Li Jingliang, just blew my mind. It was so impressive.”

It was Khamzat Chimaev who beat Li Jingliang (18-7 MMA) at UFC 267 in October 2021 by first-round technical submission in the welterweight fight, which took place at Etihad Arena on ‘Fight Island’ in Abu Dhabi.

As for Gilbert Burns, he too is coming off a win, defeating Stephen Thompson (16-6 MMA) at UFC 264 in July 2021.
