UFC is back again tonight (Sat, May 30th, 2020) with UFC On ESPN 9 MMA event from inside the promotion’s UFC Apex facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In the main headliner former division champion, Tyron Woodley takes on Gilbert Burns in a welterweight bout. It’s been over a year since Woodley lost his title to Kamaru Usman at UFC 235, and it’s the first time he’s returning to Octagon. Burns is one over-looked fighter who’s on tearing five-fight winning streak scoring big wins over the likes of Gunnar Nelson and Demian Maia, sure he’ll give ‘The Chosen One’ one hell of a night.
Meanwhile, in the co-headlining act, heavyweight bruisers Blagoy Ivanov and Augusto Sakai will clash.
Also in the main card, an intriguing strawweight bout, where Mackenzie Dern is returning to Octagon after long hiatus against Hannah Cifers.
The opening of prelims looks promising as Antonina Shevchenko will look for her second straight win when she meets Katlyn Chookagian in a flyweight bout. Chookagian will look to bounce back from his recent loss against Valentina Shevchenko this past February.
Preliminary matches will begin at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+, which is followed by the main card start time at 9 p.m. ET on the ESPN/ESPN+ as well.
