UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs. Burns will appear on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ this Saturday, May 30, beginning at 9 p.m. ET from UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main event features a pivotal welterweight bout between former champion and No. 1-ranked Tyron Woodley (19-4-1) and No. 6-ranked Gilbert Burns (18-3-0). Woodley, a champion for nearly three years, will return to the Octagon intent on making a statement after losing the title 14 months ago at UFC 235 to current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Burns, a rising star since moving back to the welterweight division, has won five consecutive fights and emerged as a legitimate title threat.
In the prelims’ featured bout, No. 2-ranked women’s flyweight contender Katlyn Chookagian (13-3-0) aims to get back on track against fellow striker and No. 12-ranked Antonina Shevchenko (8-1-0), after losing a championship bout at UFC 247 to Antonina’s sister and current women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko.
UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs. Burns starts with prelims at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+.
