New UFC Fight Night ended with Gilbert Burns being better then Tyron Woodley by unanimous decision in the main event.
City of Lights and Fights celebrates it’s opening with a good fight. Both Welterweight fighters had lot on their stake in this bout, because the winner of it would probably have a chance for a title fight. Woodley is a former champion with record of (19-4-1) while Burns had a five-fight win streak before this fight.
ESPN sanctioned the action on Saturday night and things just seemed to remain interesting. Dana White and his UFC promotion absolutely wanted to remain in Vegas if the rules permitted. Now, the city and possibly Fight Island will play host to all UFC fights for the foreseeable future as the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic.
“I love to be there, 100%. I say that this [Octagon] is my house and that’s why I can’t wait to compete,” Burns said to CBS Sports’ “State of Combat” podcast earlier in the week. “Right now, I don’t have to do this crazy weight cut anymore to lightweight and I’m always training. I just love to compete. I know when I get in the Octagon, I’m going to get paid for that and I’m going to improve. On Saturday, I think I’m going to shock a lot of people.”
With this fight finished, now fans are wondering, does Burns have what it takes to fight his friend Kamaru Usman.
