On Friday, UFC president Dana White will be in attendance at Titan FC 54 in Florida, and Herbert Burns believes it will be the night he earns a UFC deal.
“My plan is to win this fight in an impressive way, to get a contract with the UFC,” Burns told MMA Junkie. “I believe I have all the necessary weapons to win this fight and go on to the UFC featherweight roster. I know that once I’m in the UFC, I can make it to the rankings in short order.”
Burns (7-2) faces Luis Gomez at Titan FC 54, which takes place at Xtreme Action Park in Fort Lauderdale. The card streams live on UFC Fight Pass, and White will be there to film for his show “Dana White: Lookin’ for a Fight.”
There’s no guarantee a victory will get Burns a UFC deal, but he believes that once the UFC boss sees him compete, the result is inevitable, and he’ll find his way to the UFC roster alongside his brother Gilbert.
