Burns: "I just want five rounds"
Gilbert Burns explained why he wanted their fight with Jorge Masvidal was five round.
“Of course it's a disappointment. I'm still waiting for the UFC's decision. We are still talking about this. I don't ask for much. I just want five rounds. They did five rounds for the Edwards-Diaz fight. They made five rounds for many other fights. Why do they say no in this case? I insist on it, but the decision has not yet been made. It's very hard when one guy stands his ground and says no. In this case, it is very difficult to reach a consensus. I have no doubt that I will destroy this guy, but in five rounds, it would be guaranteed. Still, I will make my opponent suffer in three rounds, just five will guarantee me the finish. Well, I hope they will make concessions to me, and if not, then everything is in order "
