  • Gilbert Burns was a former welterweight title challenger.
  • Burns holds an MMA record of 22 wins and six losses.
  • Burns is coming off a loss from Belal Muhammad.

Gilbert Burns’ two-fight winning streak has been snapped by Belal Muhammad after a unanimous decision conclusion in the co-main event of UFC 288 this May 2023. It was Burns’ third pay-per-view fight in five months this 2023, as he took this fight on a 16-day notice to replace the original co-main event bout between Charles Oliveria and Beneil Dariush.

Despite this loss to Muhammad, the Brazilian MMA superstar has earned the respect of the combat sports community for taking the risk. Also, his well-rounded skills in striking and grappling have made him a top choice in online sports betting for fans to bet on UFC odds, as he always finds himself in exciting fights. But when will “Durinho” be back to action? And who will be his next opponent?

When is Gilbert Burns’ Next Fight?

The details of Gilbert Burns’ next fight are still unknown because he is likely to take a significant time to rest and recover from this grueling stretch in the first five months of 2023, where he appeared in three high-level fights. Once ”Durinho” decides to return, he can fight other welterweight contenders such as Colby Covington, Shavkat Rakhmanov, and Sean Brady.
