Crypto casino Stake unites with Gilbert Burns for UFC 287 

Crypto casino Stake has confirmed a new link with Brazilian welterweight, Gilbert Burns, ahead of the UFC’s return to Miami this weekend. 

‘Durinho’ took to his social media platforms to announce the collaboration as he becomes the latest fighter to join forces with the crypto firm, alongside Israel Adesanya.

It comes as the duo take centre stage at UFC 287 for the MMA promotion’s return to Miami on Saturday – with both vying to reach the summit of their respective divisions. 

Burns looks to cement his shot at welterweight gold against Jorge Masvidal, whilst Adesanya is eyeing redemption over middleweight rival and newly crowned champion, Alex Perreira. 

When the partnership with Adesanya was agreed, the middleweight striker stated: “Stake is the world’s leading crypto betting platform and I’m very pleased to be sponsored by them. They’ve risen to the top of their field very quickly and the partnership presents the perfect opportunity to align with a brand whose ethos and ambitions so closely reflect mine. 

“The collaboration will see us create many unique opportunities for users and I can’t wait to meet and interact with their community throughout the partnership.”
