Usman is riding a 16-fight winning streak and has yet to lose during his tenure in the UFC since winning "The Ultimate Fighter" in 2015. Burns has been on a roll since returning to the welterweight division in 2019. He has won four straight in dominant fashion, with victories over Tyron Woodley, Demian Maia, Gunnar Nelson and Alexey Kunchenko. But Usman is, by far, his stiffest test to date.

Usman and Burns are familiar with each other as training partners, but nothing can simulate the feel of an actual fight with high stakes.

Will Usman extend his winning streak and begin chipping away at Georges St-Pierre's status of being the greatest welterweight of all time? Or will Burns hand Usman his first loss and begin a new era in the 170-pound division?

  Ken Burns, Lynn Novick Dissect Ernest Hemingway’s Work, Image, “Complicated” Sexuality In PBS Documentary ‘Hemingway’ — TCA Directors Ken Burns and Lynn Novick are promising a “nuanced” portrait of Ernest Hemingway in their three-part, six-hour documentary on the Nobel Prize-winning author coming to PBS in April. Speaking at the PBS Winter Press Tour session Tuesday, Burns said the film deconstructs Hemingway’s image as a “hyper-masculine” archetype. “We were drawn at trying to get at a real Hemingway and I think the persona of the wild man, the drunk, the bar guy, the big game hunter, the big sea fisherman is sort of what we inherit, the baggage we carry. But almost immediately we began to see how thin and frail that was, not just for him but in fact.

Patrick Mahomes is competing in his second consecutive Super Bowl on Sunday, February 7, and is ready to lead the Kansas City Chiefs to another victory. The 25-year-old Texas native was selected in the first round of the April 2017 NFL draft and started in his first game for the Chiefs eight months later. The following year, Mahomes was named the team’s official starting quarterback. Mahomes later earned the 2019 Best NFL Player ESPY Award and became the first-ever Chiefs player to win the NFL’s coveted MVP award. In February 2020, Mahomes and the Chiefs faced off against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV in Miami. The up-and-coming athlete helped his team win their first championship since Super Bowl IV in 1970. “We fought for our right to PAAAARTYYYY #chiefskingdom,” Mahomes’ now-fiancée, Brittany Matthews, gushed in a sweet social media post at the time as she celebrated her longtime love’s big victory. This year, Mahomes is returning to Florida for another shot at Super Bowl glory — and will be playing against one of his idols, Tom Brady. “Being able to go up against the one of the greatest, if not the greatest, quarterback of all-time in his 150th Super Bowl is gonna be a great experience for me,” Mahomes recently joked of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers player, 43, as they prepare to face off for the title. According to Fox Sports reporter Bruce Feldman, Mahomes was in kindergarten when Brady played — and won — his first Super Bowl in 2002.

With Viera completely exhausted, Fluffy Hernandez poured it on with a bevy of strikes before sinking in a guillotine for the submission in the second round.

Sam Burns sets big target with another low round at Riviera

  Sam Burns sets big target with another low round at Riviera LOS ANGELES — Sam Burns wanted to pay respect to tough Riviera by playing it safe. It led to a 5-under 66 to tie the 36-hole record at the Genesis Invitational and build a five-shot lead among early starters Friday. Burns kept his bogey-free day in tact toward the end of the round when he came up short of the eighth green, his 17th of the morning. He chipped it about 10 feet short — anything too strong could lead to big trouble — and made the par putt. He also handled two of the par 5s, and picked up so much roll on the firm turf at the 476-yard 12th hole that he had only a pitching wedge into the green and made a 5-foot putt.

9:39 p.m.: To close out the UFC 258 prelims the undefeated Rodolfo Viera aims to keep his unbeaten MMA record intact against Anthony Hernandez in a middleweight showdown.

9:33 p.m.: Muhammad's pressure was simply too much for Lima to overcome in this one. Muhammad earned a one-sided unanimous decision with scores of 30-27 across the board. This will certainly see Muhammad climb the rankings and someone in the top 10 will get their name called for him next.

Following Polyana Viana slick submission of Mallory Martin, we have an important welterweight showdown between Dhiego Lima and Belal Muhammad where the winner can move up in a wide-open 170-pound division with a sharp eye on tonight's main event.

Canadian UFC fighter Alexis Davis looks impressive in first action in 19 months .
LAS VEGAS — Canadian veteran Alexis Davis, fighting for the first time in 19 months, gave Sabina (Colombian Queen) Mazo a reality check en route to a unanimous decision win Saturday night on a UFC Fight Night card. The judges scored it 30-27, 30-27, 30-26 for Davis, who used her grappling skills to blunt Mazo's striking talent. The 36-year-old Davis (20-10-0), who had shoulder surgery in early 2020, came into the bout on a three-fight losing streak. The 23-year-old Mazo (9-2-0) had won her last three fights.
