Khamzat Chimaev is targeting ‘two or three’ UFC belts in his career and believes he will steamroll Gilbert Burns.

The dominant welterweight has been a sensation, remaining undefeated since joining the organisation and it seems likely he will face the Brazilian next. 

Both men have agreed to fight but an official announcement has not been made.

‘Borz’ was last in action last October when he demolished Li Jingliang with a first-round submission and many believe he will be the man to eventually dethrone Kamaru Usman.  

The No 11-ranked 170-pounder outlined his grand ambitions, telling RT Sport: ‘Well, probably getting a few more championship belts. 

‘Becoming the best. I don’t want to be just a regular guy who won one belt. I want two or three belts. 

‘We’ll see, if I can do it I will do it. We may make our plans, but God has the last word.’

A fight with Burns at UFC 273 in April seems a formality and the Brazilian recently revealed that he is just waiting on the UFC to present him with the contract. 

Even though it will be Chimaev’s toughest test on paper to date, he has dismissed Burns’ chances in the fight. 

He said: ‘To be honest, I don’t see a real challenge in him. We’ll see. Everything may happen in a fight, but I am confident as usual. 

‘I think I will just smash him with my skills and power. I feel that way. He might feel different, but I will go there and do what I did the last time.’
