“I don’t think he would do it, but I would love to do that fight,” Burns said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I think it’s a (fight) back in the top five for me, a rematch. For sure, I’ll fight him”.

Gilbert Burns on the corrections he would make

“For sure I would approach it differently, I was very emotional in that first fight, first title fight. I lost the opportunity when I got COVID, and I was hoping to keep the opportunity.

I was training and got very emotional in the fight. I made a couple of dumb mistakes, and I don’t think I would do that again. But Kamaru, he’s a very intelligent fighter. Back then, he was the guy. I think it would be an amazing fight.

If I could pick, that would be my pick for my next fight”.
