Woodley is making his arrival to activity just because since losing the welterweight title to Kamaru Usaman in March 2019. Preceding the misfortune, Woodley had gone seven battles without a misfortune. Consumes, is riding a five-fend series of wins and falling off the greatest success of his vocation, a first-round TKO of Demian Maia in March.
That battle stays a five-battle principle card, with a heavyweight confrontation between Blagoy Ivanov versus Augusto Sakai filling in as the co-headliner as the UFC comes back to its command post in Nevada.

Dana White and UFC have decided to use its smaller octagon tonight at the Apex, which is 25-foot instead of their standard 30-foot cage. The smaller cage has historically shortened average fight times and increased finished rates due to the engagement between the fighters, if you’re planning on betting, keep this in mind.
Which Woodley will we see tonight is the real question UFC fans are asking themselves leading up to this match. Burns is coming in off five wins in a row and whoever wins this match tonight will likely be the next title challenger.
