Prior to that, he had suffered back-to-back defeats to then champion Kamaru Usman.

Burns is coming off a quick submission win over Neil Magny at UFC 283 in Brazil, and prior to that, he competed in a highly-entertaining fight against Khamzat Chimaev.

The main event of UFC 287 will feature Alex Pereira defending his title in an immediate rematch against Israel Adesanya.
