Gilbert Burns And Belal Muhammad will clash in the co-main event UFC 288 This weekend, Henry Cejudo challenges Aljamene Sterling for the bantamweight title.

Burns is making a quick turnaround, having fought his last fight just a month ago. The Brazilian defeats Jorge Masvidal at UFC 287 to get closer to a second shot at the welterweight title, and if he could beat Muhammad he could secure the bout.

The American Muhammad has won eight straight fights with the exception of a no contest against Leon Edwards in 2021, a year before Edwards won the welterweight title. Muhammad will now look to use his history with the defending champion to overcome Burns and get a shot at the gold.

In the main event on Saturday, Cejudo returns after three years to challenge Sterling, who holds the bantamweight title that Cejudo previously held along with the flyweight belt.
