Tyron Woodley and Gilbert Burns go head-to-head this Saturday in the UFC’s return to Las Vegas.

While the promotion awaits final approval from the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Wednesday, as of now UFC on ESPN 9 is expected to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas and Woodley and Burns will close the show with a welterweight duel featured on the official poster for the event.

This will be Woodley’s first fight since losing the UFC welterweight title to Kamaru Usman in March 2019, while Burns hunts for his fourth consecutive victory at 170 pounds.

Not featured on the poster are co-headliners Blagoy Ivanov and Augusto Sakai, who look to crack the heavyweight top 10 with a win on Saturday.
