Dana White wants to see Kamaru Usman versus Gilbert Burns.

The UFC president is keen to book the welterweight title clash, which was scrapped last week after Burns tested positive for the coronavirus, and won’t grant Jorge Masvidal’s requests for an immediate rematch. Masvidal had been arguing his performance on six days notice, combined with the pay-per-view success should see him meet Usman on a full camp.

White doesn’t see it that way, telling reporters in Abu Dhabi that Burns was still in line for the next shot at Usman’s belt.
