The 38 year old UFC veteran defended his championship belt against four challengers before losing his title to Kamaru Usman in March of last year. Tonight he will take on Gilbert Burns in his first fight back. A fight that will hopefully start him down the path of regaining his title as the UFC Welterweight World Champion.
