The athletic Commission of Nevada gave its approval for the holding of sporting events, and this weekend the UFC returns to his native Las Vegas. In the night of Sunday there tournament kicks off UFC on ESPN 9, which will be held on a private arena of promotion “UFC APEX”.
In the main event we will see the long awaited return of former UFC Welterweight Woodley, who will share the octagon with a three-time world champion in BJJ burns.
Woodley will come to the cage after more than a year pause. In March last year, its from Olympus unconditionally overthrew Ousmane Camara, after which the “Elected” had to postpone his comeback. First, due to a hand injury broke his rematch with Robbie Lawler in June, then the pandemic coronavirus led to the cancellation of the March fight with Leon Edwards in London.

Less than a year ago, the Brazilian returned to Welterweight from light weight and have since gained a victory over unbeaten Alexei Kunchenko, the experienced Gunnar Nelson and former world champion in BJJ with superwaterman Demian Maia, who for palaonda was knocked out by a younger compatriot.
Forecast for battle
There is no doubt phenomenal grapplers skills burns, his achievements speak for themselves. However, he is good at wrestling, can send opponents in the knockout and decently added recently in the rack. But if he can overcome the opponent in orchestra seats?
Woodley was an all-American level wrestler, he has a black belt in BJJ, and his 11-year career, he never lost submisson. Woodley can win in a rack due to good footwork, but hardly burns has the necessary skills for this. If Woodley is not drastically older, then he has every chance to prevail at the expense of pressure and the right hand, which he can turn off the light anyway.
