UFC 251 Gets The Go Ahead

Ladies and Gentlemen, fight island is finally here.

Dana White has confirmed that there will be four UFC cards taking place on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, including the PPV event UFC 251 on July 11th.

The news has been well received by fans, who are not only grateful for any slice of sporting action they can get on their screen, but because the upcoming events are simply stacked. Headlining UFC 251 will be the Welterweight title fight between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns.

We've taken a look into the main event's odds with SkyBet and the current climate of the division.

Gilbert Burns Fastracks His Way to a title shot

Who is Gilbert Burns?

This was the question being asked by many fans when his bout with Tyron Woodley was announced back in May. The Brazilian had emphatically finished Demian Maia just a month prior, but he wasn't even a top ten fighter.

His opponent? The former champion, ranked number one, who had lost once in the last five years. Although this defeat came in the most dominating way possible, there was an inevitable feeling that a Woodley win would earn him a straight rematch v Usman.

Burns spoiled the comeback story though. Durinho outclassed T-Wood in all departments, dropping him in the first and constantly applying a pressure than the latter could not handle. It was as clear as a unanimous decision as you will see, with two judges even dishing out a 10-8 round.

There is now plenty of hype around the Brazilian, who has been granted a title shot. Jorge Masvidal failed to agree financial terms with the UFC and Leon Edwards is unable to leave England, creating an opening for Burns to grab his golden ticket.

Kamaru Usman v Gilbert Burns Odds

As the undefeated fighter and reigning champ, it isn't a surprise to see Kamaru Usman open up as the favourite. At 2/5 though, his price may be shorter than first predicted, but during his time in the UFC, he has shown no weaknesses.

Eight of his eleven victories in the organisation have come via unanimous decision, with his cardio and output being off the charts. This was most epitomised, like Burns, during his win over Woodley, but also his through fifth round stoppage of Colby Covington.

Usman showcased that he possesses power in the championship rounds, a trait that can be utilised with his striking, but also grappling. Going to ground in this fight will likely be the route taken by the NCCA Division II wrestling gold medalist.

Burns comes in at 7/4, with his underdog status expected. This will be his third fight in just five months, and question marks will be raised about this quick turn around. He sustained little damage against Woodley, but preparations for a title fight will take a huge toll.

He's an aggressive fighter who will want to close the distance and push Usman's back to the cage - will this style be too much given his recent time inside the cage? It's certainly going to be an intriguing watch.
