Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has signed, sealed, and will soon deliver its welterweight headliner for the upcoming UFC on ESPN 9 mixed martial arts (MMA) event tomorrow night (Sat., May 30, 2020), as former 170-pound champion Tyron Woodley returns to action against streaking division standout Gilbert Burns.
Both fighters made weight today without incident (get full weigh-in results here).
