It was first postponed when Burns was hit by a bout of COVID-19. Then, Jorge Masvidal stepped in on short notice.

However, Usman saw off Masvidal easily on the scorecards.

The match was again rescheduled for 12 December last year. It was again postponed because of Usman’s nagging injury.

Burns is on a six-fight winning streak, while the Nigerian Nightmare has won 16 straight fights and hasn’t lost a bout since 2013.
