Gilbert Burns could not keep the Welterweight belt, but does not give up on UFC. Kamaru usman had another impressive night this Saturday at UFC 258 in Las Vegas, finishing off the Brazilian. The Nigerian champion defended his for the fourth time. After being knocked out in one of the most important events of the year, he spoke with the press and made it clear what went through his head.
Being so, Burns She began by remarking, “I have a lot of respect for my boy, Cody Garbrandt. I just went the same way. As soon as I saw that he was hurt, forget about strategy. I just went to kill. He remained disciplined. It is not fast. It doesn’t hit that hard. But he’s fucking disciplined. And for me it was the opposite. I got too excited, I took my blows, and that was my mistake.
“I think I made the same mistake when I fought Dan Hooker. To become a champion, I cannot make those mistakes. He just said, ‘I like you so much, keep working. You’re the hardest fight I’ve ever had. ‘ I said, ‘I really like you too.’ I just want to become a champion, ”added the South American, who was a great rival to the champion this weekend.

Also, added to his previous sayings, Gilbert He also highlighted: “The way I see him now, I just want to do it like Robbie Lawler. Lawler was the only guy, if I’m not mistaken, who lost to Johnny Hendricks and then came back, fought again, and became champion. I’ll not give up. Without a doubt this was very strong for me, but it will make me a better fighter.
“I hope I don’t have a crazy suspension, come back and rest, stay a little with my family. I just want to fight as fast as I can. I know I can do it, and it was almost done, but I can’t make those mistakes and become a champion. I hope I am back as soon as possible and can reverse this situation. It is what I want the most, to be able to have the opportunity again and be a champion “, he closed Gilbert Burns.
