Things Get Heated Between Khamzat Chimaev and Gilbert Burns at UFC 273 Press Conference

We are days ahead of UFC 273 and the fans are excited for the people's main event between Khamzat Chimaev and Gilbert Burns.

And the much-awaited press conference for UFC 273 hyped up the fans even more thanks to the verbal altercation between Chimaev and Burns.

Khamzat Chimaev trolled Gilbert Burns for crying after his loss to Kamaru Usman in his only UFC title fight. While Burns mocked Chimaev over his accent.

And it's needless to say that the crowd was loving the back and forth between these two welterweight elites.

Khamzat Chimaev even went ahead and made a bold prediction for UFC 273 by saying: "I am gonna smash that guy, knock him out, 1-minute guys. I promise. He is too little, scared boy."

Things got even more interesting when a reporter asked Gilbert Burns about him being a huge underdog against the ranked number 11 UFC welterweight.

To this, Chimaev replied: "Of course he is underdog" and slammed the table, which got the crowd fired up.

But, that did not phase Gilbert Burns and he hilariously acted like he was scared of Chimaev. It's needless to say that the back and forth between these two was the highlight of UFC 273 Press conference.

Khamzat Chimaev even called out Burns for a backstage brawl and said: "I can see you every minute. Come on backstage I will smash your face."

This fight will have a huge impact on the future of the welterweight division.

A dominant win for Chimaev will put the welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman's reign in serious trouble.

However, if Burns manages to secure a win then another hype train will be derailed before winning the UFC title.
