The main map and the “Prelims” part of the next UFC event on May 30th live on ESPN / ESPN + at UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, have been officially defined.
It was according to UFC president Dana White, who released details to play-by-play announcer Octagon Jon Anik in a recent interview with ESPN MMA (above). White also talked about other topics, such as Jon Jones against Francis Ngannou and “Fight Island”, but the next UFC card on May 30 took priority.
As expected, former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley will meet thriving competitor Gilbert Burns at the main event. It will be the first fight for “Chosen One” since losing his title against Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 in March 2019. For Burns, this is his first UFC headliner and his fifth appearance in octagon since last April (the Brazilian is currently on a sequence of five consecutive victories).
In the main co-event, increasing prospect heavyweight Augusto Sakai will put his winning streak of three UFC fights at stake against veteran Blagoy Ivanov, who just lost Derrick Lewis last November. Combat fans will also see promising young talents like Mackenzie Dern, Kevin Holland, Brok Weaver, Klidson Abreu and “Alpha Ginger” Spike Carlyle scattered around the map.
