UFC 258 record rundown: Kamaru Usman vs. Gilbert Burns

With a win at UFC 258, Kamaru Usman will have the longest winning streak in UFC welterweight history

Kamaru Usman joined the UFC in 2015 with a record of 5-1. Today, Usman has a professional record of 17-1. Those 12 straight wins in the UFC welterweight division put him in a tie with former two-division UFC champion Georges St-Pierre for the longest winning streak in the history of the UFC’s 170-pound division.

On Saturday, Usman looks to break that tie with St-Pierre when he faces No. 1 ranked Gilbert Burns in the main event of UFC 258. Usman, who claimed the UFC welterweight title with a 2019 decision win over Tyron Woodley, still has a way to go to catch St-Pierre in the consecutive title defense department. If the champ gets past Burns, the victory will mark his third title defense. St-Pierre defended the title nine times in a row between 2008 and 2013.

Usman has rather quietly put his name in the UFC welterweight record book in several categories since he made his debut with the promotion with a win over Hayder Hassan in the welterweight finale of season 21 of The Ultimate Fighter.

Before Saturday’s UFC 258 pay-per-view card, take a look at where Usman and Burns stand in the UFC record book.

UFC 258 takes place at UFC Apex. The main card streams on ESPN+ pay-per-view before prelims on ESPN+ and ESPN and early prelims in ESPN+.
