The screaming sound you can hear late Saturday night when you're anywhere near Jacksonville
Florida is the hype of Khamzat Chimaev, which is slowing down his role.
Gilbert Burns was the one who slowed down.
Burns bled and was defeated in a brutal opening round, but survived.
As his UFC 273 match against the rocket-growing star Chimaev moved to the second round, Burns began to take control.
It's not what we saw in Chimaev's first four UFC appearances.
This time he was in a competitive battle. And Chimaev showed that he was ready for the challenge.
After a repeated tricycle in which everyone landed on big stumps and big moments
Chimaev was instructed by three judges (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) to prove something important and lasting.
Chima has shown that he is in an octagon with the UFC Welter's weight elites.
The train hype continues. This victory was very different from the nights of Chimayev's general domination that took place in the past.
In each of his previous appearances, Chimaev saw more than just a human in collecting video game numbers.
