Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight contenders Tyron Woodley and Gilbert Burns will conflict TONIGHT (May 30, 2020) from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tyron Woodley ruled over the Welterweight division for very nearly three years, yet it appears as though his back is to the divider only one battle expelled from his title misfortune. Maybe that feeling is a direct result of exactly how overwhelmingly Kamaru Usman took the belt. Perhaps this is on the grounds that Woodley is presently 38 years of age.
In any case, pressure is on for “T-Wood.”
The previous hero has a hazardous assignment in front of him in Burns, who has gotten five triumphs in under two years. Consumes is ablaze, making his mark and terminating on all chambers, and he’ll be hoping to say something inverse Woodley.
Key Wins: Robbie Lawler (UFC 201), Stephen Thompson (UFC 209, UFC 214), Demian Maia (UFC 214), Kelvin Gastelum (UFC 183), Darren Till (UFC 228)
Key Losses: Kamaru Usman (UFC 235), Rory MacDonald (UFC 174), Jake Shields (UFC 161)
Keys to Victory: A highly decorated wrestler with a thunderous right hand, Woodley is not an opponent to be taken lightly. Woodley is a highly tactical fighter, one who manages his reactions and energy carefully to remain dangerous and effective deep into long fights.
Woodley is at his best when countering opponents. From Josh Koscheck to Darren Till, a majority of his biggest strikes are landed when Woodley’s opponents are coming at him. Really, Woodley’s only boring fights are those against foes who refuse to engage fully.
He’s not likely to have that issue against Gilbert Burns.
As such, I’d like to see Woodley evasive early. Against Till, his early footwork really flustered his opponent even with Till’s reach advantage. If Woodley can convince Burns to load up early, that may be the only opportunity he requires to return to the win column.
Key Wins: Demian Maia (UFC Fight Night 170), Gunnar Nelson (UFC Fight Night 160), Alexey Kunchenko (UFC Fight Night 156), Alex Oliveira (UFC Fight Night 62), Olivier Aubin-Mercier (UFC 231)
Key Losses: Dan Hooker (UFC 226), Michel Prazeres (UFC Fight Night 95), Rashid Magomedov (UFC Fight Night 77)
Keys to Victory: Burns is something of a powerhouse himself. The Brazilian has come into his power in the last few years, and the results were immediate, as fighters started falling over when “Durinho” hit them. In addition, Burns is one of the most decorated grapplers on the roster.
Against Woodley, estimated animosity is the situation. Woodley battles most with adversaries who can reliably pressure him without over-broadening. To expound further, there have been two effective techniques for truly invalidating Woodley’s capacity: unbelievable range control (Rory MacDonald) and secure work (Usman and Jake Shields).
Between those two alternatives, Burns appears to fit more into the weight and-secure procedure. As Shields demonstrated, a finished takedown isn’t required! Woodley strolls himself into the fence, so sticking him into the enclosure and piling on control time isn’t incomprehensible.
Luckily for watchers, Burns is significantly more grounded and more hostile than Shields. Once in the secure, Burns can do harm with tight punches while he pushes the pace.
