Gilbert Burns ‘not done’ with Khamzat Chimaev

Former UFC welterweight contender Gilbert Burns believes sooner or later he’ll cross paths with Khamzat Chimaev once again.

The pair produced an astonishing fight at UFC 273 this past weekend, as Chimaev got the W via UD. The closely contested bout won the Fight of the Night bonus.

The Brazilian wants to test his skills against the Swedish-born Russian one more time, but he understands that might have to wait a bit.

“The way I see it too, is that we’re not done,” Burns told TSN. “I do believe we’re not done. For sure he moves forward in the rankings and they want to make that Colby Covington fight. But the way I see it, I’m not afraid to fight anyone in this division. Time and time again I’ve proved it. … I just want one thing back from Khamzat, I want the courtesy.

“I was No. 2 and I fought No. 11. I want a rematch with Khamzat. If he beats Colby, he’s going to fight Kamaru and I just want my rematch in his next three fights. I want my rematch and I believe we’re not done and one guy needs to get a finish. It’s just a fight that should’ve been five rounds. It should be more rounds and I think we kind of missed out a little bit on this fight.”

“Durinho” pushed for the fight with Chimaev to be 25 minutes, but the UFC decided against it, as there were already two title fights scheduled on the card for the main and co-main event.
