UFC goes back to Brazil for an exciting card in January, 2023. This the first UFC event in Brazil after the pandemic.

Gilbert Burns was looking for an opponent to secure a place in the UFC Brazil card for an opportunity to entertain the Brazilian MMA fans.

Fortunately, UFC is now close to finalizing a welterweight bout between Gilbert Burns and Neil Magny, who is coming off a win against Daniel Rodriguez.

Gilbert Burns has called out multiple UFC welterweights for his next fight including Jorge Masvidal and Khamzat Chimaev.

However, Masvidal allegedly turned down to fight Burns and Chimaev wants his next fight in the middleweight division.

Khamzat Chimaev is also aiming for the UFC middleweight champion, Alex Pereira and has been calling him out since his title win.

The top contenders. of the welterweight division have not been active in the recent past. Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal are yet to return to the octagon after their fight.

This situation can be frustrating for fighters such as Gilbert Burns and Belal Muhammad who are looking to earn a title shot with a win over top ranked welterweights.
