In a serious UFC welterweight division, a solitary misfortune can put a contender far from a title shot. That reality alone makes the battle between Tyron Woodley and Gilbert Burns a major battle. The conflict fills in as the headliner of UFC on ESPN 9 from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
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 profession, a first-round TKO of Demian Maia in March.
That battle grapples 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.
CBS Sports will be with all of you evening bringing you results and investigation from UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas on Saturday, with the principle card getting in progress at 9 p.m. ET.
