Jorge Masvidal can’t get past Gilbert Burns in the co-main event at UFC 287.
Jorge Masvidal came to UFC 287 with the aim of making up for his losses to Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman twice in recent years. However, his rival was nothing more and nothing less than Gilbert Burns, so it was not going to be easy for him. One thing in Masvidal’s favor would be that he would be fighting in his hometown of Miami, so the public would be behind him.
Gilbert Burns dominated at least two of the three rounds and ended up taking the victory via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28). After the fight, Masvidal confirmed what had already been talked about in recent days: his official withdrawal. The fighter wanted to thank everyone for their support and we could see that he was visibly moved.
After this fight, Jorge Masvidal adds four consecutive defeats and ends his career. Gilbert Burns, at 36, continues to be among the best in the division and now it remains to be seen who his next opponent will be. The Brazilian wants to face the winner of the fight between Colby Covington and Leon Edwards for the welterweight title.
