Fight Result – Gilbert Burns to win

We’re sure that Jorge certainly doesn’t plan to sit back and spend a lot of time in the clinch and wrestling, which will no doubt reflect on his strengths. Neither should we expect Gamebred to shoot and scout, but an immediate entrance into the game is very likely.

The best game plan for the American will be to work in Chimaev’s strength – fast, sharp, and thorough. Confident threes mixed with mid and low kicks will allow to hold Burns’ pressure and keep a strategic position in the middle of the octagon.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Gilbert Burns vs Jorge Masvidal

Gilbert Burns: Durinho

Failures in the bouts against Nigerian Kamaru ‘’The Nigerian Nightmare’’Usman and Russian Khamzat ‘’Borz’’ Chimaev have taken a serious toll on ‘’Durinho’’, who has replaced the bitterness of defeat with more training. And that’s no surprise. After six years of neglect in the UFC, Gilbert jumped to the top on a wave of six consecutive wins and is now consistently in the top five.

While the 36-year-old Brazilian’s chances of winning the championship belt are diminishing by the day, there is still hope of fighting for that dream in him. Burns is capable of putting up long fights, withstanding tons of punches and throwing his opponents to the canvas. Might be worth getting involved in the title race once more.

Jorge Masvidal: Gamebred

The last mentions of Masvidal were of an arrest over an altercation with American Colby ‘’Chaos’’ Covington. Then there were even rumours of a possible end to the veteran’s career in the UFC. And now, a couple of months after the incident, the BMF belt holder returns to the octagon for a Burns vs Masvidal bout. Given the disappointing trend for Jorge, the 38-year-old gladiator is unlikely to reach the championship level any more. However, ”Gamebred” has yet to lose his trademark timing, explosive power and insane stamina.
