MIAMI – Jorge Masvidal was feeling love from the Miami crowd as he went in for his final faceoff against Gilbert Burns ahead of UFC 287.
The “BMF” champion Masvidal (35-16 MMA, 12-9 UFC) was amped up by the “3-0-5” chants from the fans when he had a final staredown with Burns (21-5 MMA, 14-5 UFC) at Friday’s ceremonial weigh-ins.
It’s an important fight for both men, because Masvidal will attempt to snap a three-fight losing skid while Burns tries to reestablish himself as a top title contender.
