Buckle up because we have an excellent lineup of fights this weekend. The event headliner of the UFC on ESPN will see Tyron Woodley facing Gilbert Burns in a welterweight clash.
The event will be in Las Vegas, Nevada, but there won’t be any fans in the stands once again. Let’s break it down.
What The Odds Say About Tyron Woodley Vs. Gilbert Burns

Tyron Woodley’s Edge Vs. Burns At The UFC Fight Night
With 19 wins, four losses and one draw in 24 fights, Tyron Woodley deserves to be the favorite. Many expect him to bounce back after losing his last contest against Kamaru Usman in the UFC Welterweight Championship in March 2019.
Woodley’s loss was the first one in the last eight fights. There’s a gap of five years between his previous two defeats. Seeing Tyron taking an L is nothing short of amazing.
Because of his wrestling style, Woodly doesn’t finish many of his fights early on. Instead, he makes sure he dominates throughout the entire battle to finish his opponent at the end. Six of his last seven contests went the distances, including the last five in a row.
Gilbert Burns’ Edge Vs. Woodley At The UFC Fight Night
Although Woodley is the clear favorite, Gilbert Burns won’t make it easy. His 18-3 record should tell you enough about how good he is and the chances of pulling the upset.
Gilbert is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion with plenty of experience in wrestling. He earned his title back in 2011. He has the tools to makes this fight a messy one for Woodley.
Burns has won his last five fights in a row, including a TKO victory over Demian Maia in March this year. Three of those five wins went the distance, winning each via unanimous decision.
Gilbert Burns is one of the hottest fighters in the UFC right now. He’s been asking for this fight against Woodley for a while. I will be surprised if he doesn’t bring his A-game on Saturday.
Tyron Woodley Vs. Gilbert Burns UFC Fight Night Prediction
There are a couple of bets I like in this one. The obvious one is the over 4.5 rounds. This fight will go the distance, and the +117 price is enticing enough to make it your primary wager.
Yet, you came here looking for a winner, so here it is. Kamaru Usman exposed Tyron Woodley’s game. He gave Burns and anybody who wants to face Woodley the textbook on how to beat Tyron.
Now, not every fighter can put together a performance like the one Usman had, but Gilbert Burns is undoubtedly one of them.
I don’t think laying down money on Woodley is a good move, especially because he’s living under past glory. Burns is the hungriest fighter here. Bet Gilbert Burns +160 at MyBookie.
