Gilbert Burns says he is ready to fight Covington, Edwards and Chimaev

“The only fight after which you can immediately go to the title is a fight with Colby Covington. Only him. Or else a fight with Leon Edwards. If he does not get a new opponent by May, then I will fight him.

I don’t know who I want to fight with. I wish to get each of these fighters. I will fight with Khamzat Chimaev. I’ll fight Stephen Thompson. I’m going to fight Michael Chiesa. It all depends on the circumstances. If the UFC says that I need two fights, then I will lose a little position in the ranking, and the opponent will be higher than me. If they say I need one fight, then let them give me Colby Covington, “Gilbert Burns told MMA Junkie.
