Woodley vs Burns preview
The MMA handicapper knows that the main event on May 30 will probably be a major turning point in the careers of the two fighters. Woodley saw one of the most successful races in UFC welterweight history marred by inactivity due to various injuries and criticisms of what some observers consider a conservative fighting style.
Woodley (19-4-1) memorablely eliminated Robbie Lawler in the first round of their July 2016 fight to claim the title and had four title defenses. But he was apathetic in his lopsided decision loss to Usman, who used his struggle and control of the cage to dominate their fight. The former champion turned 38 in April and losing to Burns could mean a long way back to the title.
Burns (18-3) makes his way to the Apex facility as one of the hottest fighters in the class. The 33-year-old Brazilian has flirted on the edge of the rankings since his UFC debut in 2014. But he’s been on a roll since a July 2018 loss to Dan Hooker, with an impressive streak among his five straight wins.
Burns eliminated the revered submission specialist Demian Maia in March and immediately called for a fight with a top competitor. He called for a fight with Woodley on social media and the former champion forced him. You can see Woodley’s predictions and picks against Marley’s Burns here.
